Reinvention

Image result for images reinvention

I know of a woman who was a lifelong landscaper, active, moving, walking on all sorts of surfaces without a moment’s thought.  After an accident, several surgeries, and fusions, she was left unable to work.  She is now a self-employed custom cookie designer, and has a thriving home-based business.  Reinvention over adversity.

I know of a man who developed extreme arthritis from many years of hard physical labor.  He has now turned his talents to small wooden works of art, which he sells in local and regional art venues.  Reinvention over adversity.

I discovered today a wonderful photographer based in Donegal, Ireland.  James O’Donnell suffered an almost fatal electrocution on his London workplace fifteen years ago.  He is working and thriving today in Donegal with his faithful sidekick, Iggy, a lovely border collie.  Watch the video below to see some of his amazing photography.  Reinvention over adversity.

As long as there is life, there is hope.  As long as there is God, nothing is impossible.  As long as you have breath, praise the Lord.  🙂  Reinvention over adversity.

Love, Lisa

The Road to Beautiful

If I had a flying carpet, this is where I would fly.  Right now.  🙂

Memories of past beauty and hope for things to come.

We will either be flying to heaven or flying somewhere, just a matter of time and patience.

Flying to beautiful.

Love, Lisa

Music Things

When I am down, music never fails to lift me up.  One of the greatest gifts God ever gave us is music.  I would like to give away some of my CDs for free to anyone who is interested.  If you would like a free digital copy of my latest CD, An Unexpected Journey, please send me a message below with your email, and I will send you a code to download it.  Or if you prefer a physical CD, send me your address, and I will mail you one.  🙂  With so many negative things everywhere, I just wanted to offer one small positive thing from my corner of the world.

Rock,Water, and Wind Things

115

Power of God crashing right up against each other.

The waves, relentless in their pursuit of the shore, rolling, tumbling, crashing.

The rocks, steady, ancient, solid, holding fast.

The wind, roaring, searching, cleansing.

I will fix my mind today on the things that do not, will not, change.  God things.

Love, Lisa

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
