None of us know what’s around the corner until we step forward and keep going. Good or bad, it’s our life and life is full of learning. As we travel through, around, beneath, and atop, we will discover many things. Beauty, joy, and peace are the things my soul longs for. God has placed these things in the smallest of leaves, the intricacy of cloud formations in the sky, the amazingness of rocks that somehow hold together for hundreds of years. His love for me is written in the sky, and in the earth He created, and on His hands and feet. I just have to remember to keep looking. I would love to hear from you how you see and hear God the best. Slainte, Lisa

Just Around the Bend
It had been a long, hard journey across the sea. Two plane flights, a seven hour layover in NJ, a sprained ankle, and three tired children, including a two and a half year old. Procuring a rental car, securing the car seat, pouring over the map to locate the roads to Portmagee, and off we drove. I was determined not to stop until we reached our little cottage. But this view stopped me….Dingle Bay to my right, the wonders of Kerry just around the bend. I was filled with expectation and excitement and awe at the beauty that God has made. My poor worn out two year old and nine year old missed the whole thing, being passed out in the backseat. But the view gave me just enough energy to make it to the aforesaid cottage; knowing what might be just around the bend was exciting and kept me driving on.
Keep on driving today….what’s just around the bend is full of wonder and needs you to discover it. 🙂 Slainte, Lisa

A Blessing For the Journey
May God shield you on every step,
May He aid you on every path,
And may He hold you safe on every slope,
On every hill and on every plain;
On earth and on sea until you are home again.
~ Irish Blessing
Whether your feet take you across the sea, up a mountain, or just out in your backyard, know that Jesus will never leave you or forsake you. He is with you always, even to the very end of the age. 🙂 Slainte, Lisa
