Step Back


The pier is fuzzy.  I’m too close.  My camera lens searches and focuses on the water beyond.  Clarity, perspective, focus.

Life…sometimes feels fuzzy, unclear, unfocused.  Maybe I need to step back a step or two, or twenty, and see it better from further back.  Not disconnect, but give it more perspective from not being right on top of each situation.  Trusting God more, trusting others to figure things out, trusting that God will work all out for the best end.  Easy to say, hard to do.  Pray for me, and please always let me know if I can pray for you.  Slainte, Lisa

Bridge over Not So Troubled Water

This picturesque bridge is five minutes from my home in Virginia.  Cars actually drive across this part of the river, as it is part of the road, but if the water gets too high, they can park and walk to their homes.  Wow…talk about a tough commute.  🙂  I thought it would be fun to play the “what do you focus on in the picture?” game again, as all of you have such different and interesting ways of looking at things.  Don’t be shy….let the comments begin!  I’ll let you know my focal point after hearing from some of you.  May God bless your day with smooth waters and bridges with which to cross them.  Slainte, Lisa

Places to Go and People to See

Take a good look at this picture of a street in Dingle, Ireland.  Click on it and blow it up really big so you can see all you need to.  I am always very curious as to what you focus on when you see it.  The cones perhaps and questions of why they are there?  The happy baby in the stroller?  Murphy’s Pub where you could settle down in a cozy snug and eat and drink and listen to some trad musicians?  Maybe the bright yellow shop at the end where you could look for the perfect souvenir or warm Aran sweater to take home?  It’s been so cool throughout the life of this blog to hear what different people see in a picture.  It really shows the wonderful myriad of personalities that God has made in this world, and how we’re so alike, but yet so unique.  🙂

After I hear from some of you, I will share what I focus on primarily.  Slainte, Lisa

Fix Your Eyes

A series of photos on the Lakes of Killarney…look at all of them and tell me where your eyes are fixed and focused.

 Most of you probably said the bridges.  That’s what my family and I found ourselves watching as we traveled towards them.  Our eyes traveled ahead and focused on them and watched as they grew ever closer.  In the vast lake, it was strangely grounding to see the bridges and know our destination.

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith…” (Hebrews 12:2a)  The most amazing focal point ever, grounding and giving of the best destination ever.

Travel well and with your destination firmly set in your mind.  Slainte, Lisa
