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.

Things of the Light

I love castles, but they can be rather dark affairs inside.  When the light floods in, through an open doorway, exposed crack, or window, it is a glorious thing.  You realize how very much you were craving the light, needing it, waiting for it.

Here is Donegal Castle in Ireland to illustrate.  Note to where your eye is drawn.  The light illuminates all else, reveals the beauty.

I can focus on the darkness, or I can focus on the light.  And I choose the light.  Love, Lisa

“The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.” -John 1:5

“I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.” (Jesus) – John 12:46

 

 

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

The Shield of Christ

Protection.  Safety.  Victory.  Power.  Love.  Righteousness.  Forgiveness.  Life eternal.

The Shield of Christ.

“He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.”  – Proverbs 30:5b

“Christ, be with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ where I lie, Christ where I sit,
Christ where I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.” – St. Patrick’s Lorica

Comfort, peace.  Love, Lisa

The Unchanging

36

In these days of uncertainty, people are searching for safety, security, hope.  Something that is unchanging and steady.

“I AM the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” – Revelation 22:13

“Jesus is the same yesterday and today and forever.” – Hebrews 13:8

“I lift my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from?  My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” – Psalm 121:1-2

The Unchanging.

Love, Lisa
