Wings of the Wind

Joshua on Bray’s Head, Ireland. Off in the sea is Skellig Michael, ancient home of a monastery.

“Wings of the Wind”

Who made the water to flow from the mountain?

Birds flying by to nest beside their shores

You made the earth to satisfy Your people

In Your hand, there’s only good

There is the sea, so vast & spacious

Full of more creatures than we could ever know

Who controls the waves & takes care of His people?

You can renew the face of the earth.

Praise You, Lord, oh my soul

Oh Lord my God, You are so great

You wrap Yourself in Light unending

And You ride the wings of the wind

(from Flight of Freedom, c 2012 Lisa Lyons)

I am overwhelmed with His goodness and His creativity.  He makes things beautiful, full of purpose.  And His travels are on the wings of the wind.  Slainte, Lisa

Shameless Plug

The new CD is here!  I’m very excited, and hope that you will like the new songs and be encouraged.  This will be a “shameless plug” post, and for that, I apologize.  🙂

 The CD is available via check or paypal via this website, just click on the “Flight of Freedom” tab at the top of my home page.  It also will be available on Amazon and itunes this weekend, hopefully.  Those of you who live locally, the CD is at the Culpeper United Methodist Church office and Kk’s on the corner of Davis and Main St.

What does it sound like?  Is it any good?  Why should I buy it?  These are all questions I ask myself before buying a new CD.  I honestly cannot answer any of these questions very well; everytime I hear it I think, “Well, there’s me again.”

It sounds like….someone who loves love, and God, and Ireland, and music, especially celtic music.

It is as good as I can make it with what God has given me at this time…I pray it’s good enough to encourage you in your walk.

Should you buy it?  I should say yes, but that is totally up to you.  🙂

Ok, tomorrow I will be as back to normal as I am able.  Thanks for reading and considering.  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

Back to Ireland

“Back to Ireland”

Oh, I wish I could go back to Ireland to the greenest fields I’ve ever seen

And I’d walk on the road out of Doolin to watch the wild waves on the sea

My eyes long to see loughs of Kerry as the sheep gather ’round them to drink

Of the pure crystal water of Ireland & go on their way as I dream

I would stop on Dublin’s streets just to listen to the singer as he sings his lovely song

Then sit near a warm roaring fire and hear a story from so long ago

Oh I wish I could go back to Ireland to the castles that stay in my mind

All the people that passed through their hallways & lived, loved & laughed on her shores

I would stop into a church on a hilltop surrounded by the high crosses there

And sit for a while and just listen to the small, still voice of God
