The Nature of Truth

The ocean’s ebb and pull in Barbados

If you drop an orange, it will fall to the ground.

Birds are created to fly and soar.

Humans need water to survive.

The sun is hot.

The oceans have their tides.

God is God.

His Word stands forever.

And the truth of His Word does not change, will never change.

Man cannot change the definition of truth any more than he can change the force of gravity.

Unchanging forevermore.

In a world that is writhing in uncomfortable, nonsensical change, hold tightly to God’s Word.

Be brave, be strong, be resolute, in the Power of the Holy Spirit.

Love to you all, Lisa

“But God’s truth stands firm like a foundation stone with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and “All who belong to the Lord must turn away from evil.” – 2 Timothy 2:29 NLT

“The entirety of Your Word is truth, and every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.” – Psalm 119:160 NKJV

Dreaming

The best of dreams forms in my mind

The green, the blue, the grey

The castles long forgotten stand

The stones that go on forever

Sheep that roam, seemingly boundless

The laughter, the warmth, the people

The place I breathe and dream the best

Ireland

I dreamed last night about Ireland….so hence the poem. I am excited for the day when we can finally travel there again. But for now, I am going to pet my dog, call my husband, look out at our mountain, and listen for any winter birds that may be hanging around for a Virginia winter. Have a wonderful day, wherever you are in the world. Love, Lisa

Instead

This world likes to scare us. But God has not given us a spirit of fear, but He has given us power, love, and a sound mind. I thought I would find some of my very favorite journey photos my husband and I have taken over the years to try and replace the fear with the good God things this morning. Have fun thinking of your good God things this morning also. Love, Lisa

The Lord Jesus Christ. This Celtic cross is located in Monasterboice, Ireland.
My wonderful husband and family. Blarney Castle, Ireland.

Cliffs by the sea. This was taken in County Antrim, Ireland, near the Carrick-a-Rede Bridge.
Mountains in the mist. Ben Bulben mountains, Co. Sligo, Ireland, on the Gleniff Horseshoe.
God’s creatures, sheep, pets, wooly caterpillars. These wooly sheep were on Valentia Island, Co. Kerry.

Cleansing Wind

Biking wildly down the road, wind on your face, worries behind

Standing at the turbulent shore, waves crashing, wind howling

Skate edges find ice, flying easily, cold fresh wind on your face

Holding on to balance atop a tall mountain, wind buffeting, mind cleared

The cleansing wind
