The Song

Portmagee, Ireland

Days and weeks without a song

Reticence enfolding

Thoughts swirling quickly but never formed

Outward form withholding

But birds kept singing on and on

And blue skies filled the morning

The trees broke forth in full array

The scent of flowers forming

You say if I will not sing out, the rocks will praise Your Name

I choose to sing, to praise, to say

You are my God, the Way

The Veil

Dalkey, Ireland

“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face.” – 1 Corinthians 13:12a

“Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.” – 1 John 3:2

“I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” – John 14:6

“And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, He gave up His spirit. At that moment the curtain [veil] of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.” – Matthew 27:50-52

So many mysteries and questions that we, as human creations, have. But all of the mysteries and questions are answered in one name alone: the Lord Jesus Christ.

Open the door. He is there, waiting for you, because He loves you so very much.

Love, Lisa

The Love That Never Leaves

Celtic cross in Cong Abbey, County Mayo, Ireland.

If we are honest with ourselves, love is what we all want. Love is what we all are looking for. Love is what fulfills our deepest longings.

This holy week, the week leading up to the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, is all about love. Love that is so deep, so unconditional, so sacrificial, so undeserving, that He was willing to suffer deeply and die. Love that is so strong that death cannot hold it….He burst forth into new forever life on the third day. Love that is always, always there, listening, answering, caring, loving, ready to save.

If you have never had that kind of love before, I encourage you to read about it. Turn to the book of John in the Bible, read about the Lord Jesus. Reading His words is so much better than listening to me talk about it. He is waiting for you. He loves you so much. His love never leaves, no matter what.

He is my hope, my strength, my present and my future. Please write to me if you have any questions or prayer requests or anything.

Never give up hope. Love, Lisa
