Writing When I Don’t Want To

Sometimes I feel just like this tree.  Stoic and strong. But I begin to wonder if the tree could think, if he would sometimes feel blah, uninspired, boring in his sameness.  But then just when you think the tree doesn’t change, it begins.  The green leaves turn yellow, orange, red, brown.  The wind moves the branches to and fro, changing the silhouette on the horizon.  The tree is inspired, inspiring, moving, changing, new.

When I don’t feel like writing, it is usually because I feel blah, uninspired, the same old Lisa, the same old day.  But God is always doing something new in me.  Even if I am unaware sometimes, he is making me slowly into the image of His Son.  My leaves are turning, the Spirit wind is blowing me in different directions.  

Sometimes just doing something, even if I don’t feel like it, is a good thing.  I feel better since I wrote this, and I’m not even sure why.  I guess I’m just reminding myself that God is always at work, things are not as static as I feel they are, and that moving into action can keep me propelled in that direction.

Thanks for listening to the rambling writer.  

Love, Lisa

A Warm Autumn Day

I’m late, but not really….the post can wait, the weather couldn’t.  🙂  We had to take advantage of the warm autumn air while we have it.  Warm sun, crunchy leaves, perfect blue sky, breeze that lifts your hair and takes it on a little trip….what could be better in November?  Thanking God; He is so good.  Blessings for your day, and praying you’ve had a great one.   Lisa

Summer Says See You Soon!

I always get a little sad when summer is leaving.  I am a summer girl…love walking outside with no coat, no gloves….love the water…..love the feeling of the heat on my skin and my face.  But whenever I’m sad about someone or something leaving, I don’t say “goodbye.”  I say “see you soon!”  And the things I love are still there, they are just out of sight for a little while.  Meanwhile, I will try to embrace the cooler air and sweaters re-emerging from dark recessed places of my closet.  The wind will hit my face; I’ll breathe deeply; life is a wonderful gift.  Blessings, Lisa

Fresh Wind of Change

Usually change terrifies me….but God is doing something new in me.  Changes are coming in our family, and I’m feeling rather exhilarated, excited, anticipatory.  (Plus, I’m wanting to use flowery adjectives, which is not such a good thing.  haha)  New schools, new job, new challenges and schedules.  Not boring, not predictable, and definitely not the same-old, same-old.  🙂  The winds of change are blowing, but I’m not afraid because my good God is in the middle of it all.  Blessings to you today, Lisa
