Where Will You Land?

1084

You are a bird; you’re riding the currents of the wind as it tears over Valentia Island.  You sense rather than know that Portmagee and rest of Ireland is right over the water.  There is a ridge way off in the distance that you may fly to, just to feel the pull of the mountain on your wings.  But beautiful delicious fish beckon and taunt you from the sparkling waters.  Where will you land first?  Comment below; BE THE BIRD!  😉  Slainte, Lisa

I Will Fly

The last track off Flight of Freedom….I can’t wait to fly, really fly, one day.   I will see all those I love who have passed, and we will talk and talk and it will seem as if we have been only a second apart.  Then Jesus will come, and I will see Him, and that will be all I will ever have to see again.  Voice like many waters, Love radiating from every part of Him.  Have a blessed weekend!  Lisa

A Great Day to Go Flying

When I was ten years old, my dad learned to fly.  He did countless take-offs and landings, solos, flew cross country, took tests, and finally, he was a pilot.  The thrilling part to me was that we would get to go up with him….very soon!  I trusted him completely; after all, he was my dad, and I was always safe with my dad.  All we needed was the perfect day for our first flight as a family.  Finally, that day came.  Dad said, “It’s a great day to go flying!”  And off we went, soaring off into the blue skies in our little Cessna four-seater.  It was wonderful.  🙂

It has now been ten unbelievably hard and sad days since my amazing dad has flown away into heaven and God’s arms.  I don’t ever think I will stop missing him, wanting to talk to him, ask him a question, give him a big hug.  But I also know that where he is, there is no more crying, no more pain, and beauty beyond imagining as far as the eye can see.  And when I get there one day, he will be there, waiting, with Jesus, and he will say, “It’s a great day to go flying!”  And off we’ll go, and it will be wonderful.  I love you, Dad.  Love, Lisa

 

Bird On A Winter Beach

I love winter at the ocean.  Yes, it can be cold and windy, but the beach is empty and ours for just a little while.  Except for the birds who love it all year round.  This little guy was chilling out by the waves (almost looks like he’s napping), and then showed off his amazing flying skills to the camera.

Wherever you are on this Monday morning, breathe deeply of the air around you, see what beauty you can find, and smile. Because we can.  Isn’t life an amazing thing?  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

 

Flying Free

Kell’s Priory

These birds are above, free, soaring high, not bound by the confines of the ground below.  When I see a bird, my soul cries out to be with them, to be weightless and feeling the wind carrying me.  God knows that we long for more, to experience that freedom.  That yearning we feel is what draws us forward and upward, waiting for the day we can truly fly, forever.  If you need release and forgiveness, Jesus wants to do that for you.  Just ask.  And you will know for sure that one day you will fly.  Until then, we have the birds to show us how it’s done.  🙂  Blessings, Lisa
