Furry Things

Honesty morning.  Hard night sleep, pain in ankle.  Feeling sorry for myself more than a little.  But then the soft warm nose comes nudging close beside me.  The big brown eyes look at me, asking, “Are you alright?”  The curly warm hair on his back presses into my side as if to support me if he could.

Finnegan.  My wonderful cockapoo dog.

Something good and true and admirable to think about this morning.

Thanks, buddy.  🙂  Love, Lisa

Think About These Things

254

I don’t know about you, but I need to refocus.  To turn away from all the bad, and focus my eyes and my attention on the beautiful, the true, the right, the things of God.

Therefore, a new look to the blog, a new title, a new outlook for this world-weary soul.  I am going to try my very best, with the Lord’s help, to focus on the good.  To think about these things.  Because the things of God never change and bring great peace.

Hummingbirds, puffy white clouds, sunlight playing amid the dark green summer leaves, the roar of oceans, the castles with stories, the people who love, Jesus who knows and loves me completely.

“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”  – Philippians 4:8

Love, Lisa

Finding Diamonds

We will always find what we’re looking for….if we’re looking for the good, we can see it.  If we’re determined to see the worst, we will definitely find it.

“Because there’s so much good in the worst of us….

So much bad in the best of us

It never makes sense for any of us

To criticize the rest of us

We’ll just find what we’re looking for, find what we’re looking for.”

~Amy Grant, “Find What You’re Looking For”, How Mercy Looks From Here

I’m praying the Lord helps me to look for diamonds and beauty and joy today in others.  Be blessed today, Lisa
