Friday Music

If you haven’t heard Benny Andersson play the piano, you are missing something wonderful.  He is the Swedish composer behind ABBA, Chess, Mamma Mia!, and Kristina fran Duvemala.

His album, Piano, was released in 2017, and is on near constant repeat in my house and in my car.  Melodies and piano, simple and complex all at the same time.  Sparkling, brooding, hopeful,  full of room for the imagination to run wild.  Music that makes me want to sit down and play the piano immediately.

Do yourself a favor and get a copy.  Enjoy, and have a wonderful, blessed weekend.

Love, Lisa

Ask Me How I Know

I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that God is real and that He cares about me.  And about you.

Ask me how I know?

Over and over, without fail, He gets me through the toughest days.

The toughest pain.

The deepest pit.

The Rescue  by Nathan Greene

He somehow wakes me up to a new day, fills me with new energy,  with new direction and purpose.

And that can only be God.

If you don’t know, or if you are questioning, reach out to Him.  Pray to Him.  Read the Bible.  Search, question, ask.  He is there.  Write to me if you’d like.

Love, Lisa

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.  And when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.  For I Am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior” -Isaiah 43:2-3a

All the Feelings

Life is a roller coaster of days and emotions.  Good days, hard days, crazy busy days, happy, sad, confused.  The list goes on and on.

But I am so thankful for all the feelings.  All the wonderful crazy feelings that I feel.  What a gift from God.  Because I would rather feel and love and hurt and cry than feel nothing at all.

This day, this picture, was one of those feelings days.  Crying, laughing, loving, and wondering at majesty of creation all within seconds.  Imprinted in my memory forever.
