If Timmy Can Do It…

There is a little donkey in Donegal who has stolen my heart.  Timmy was born this year at the Donegal Donkey Sanctuary with severe tendon problems in his back legs.  Why has he so captivated me?  I recently had my third surgery on my ankle to fix a an ongoing problem.  Timmy is improving, and as I watch him go, he encourages me to not give up and to keep going.  God bless animals for their uncomplaining spirits.  Blessings to you also on your journey.  Lisa

Strength

“I’m not strong enough.”

“I can’t do this.”

“I can’t see how this is going to work out.”

Are we strong enough?  No.  But God is.  Always.

We don’t see the strength beforehand…it comes as we need it, step by step.

And that’s where I rest, in Jesus’ hands, where there is rest and peace and protection.

So many people I know are going through some very difficult times.  I find myself praying more and more.  I have to have another surgery on my ankle in October.  More inactivity, more propping the foot up for hours on end.  But also, more time to spend with the One who has all the strength and hope and answers and power.  Jesus.  Thank God for that.

“God gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”  ~Isaiah 40:29

Whatever you’re facing, Jesus is your strength.  Slainte, Lisa

Going On

55.JPG

Following the fence posts, one by one, until the meaning of what they are blurs

Steps, one by one, through soft ground, mire, holes, rises

Keeping hope, without sight, hoping that what is over the rise is better than what is past

Finally, blue and power and water and sky and ease and release

Going on and on and on with God forever
