Musings on a Bird


To sing in the morning

To fly with my wings

To land where I wish

And see wonderful things

But to shiver in the damp

And to search for my food

To lose my home in the gusts

And my child in the wood

Better to think of the things that I’ve got

Than to yearn for the things that I’ve not

At the End of an Ancient Road…



…lies Dunseverick Castle.  One of the high roads from Tara ended on this beautiful cliff in County Antrim.  Although the castle was destroyed in 1641, it’s location and the imagination of what was is a feast for the eyes and mind.

Here’s to the day….to seeing, to hearing, to thinking, to feeling…all the amazing things that God has placed all around to experience.  Cliffs, water, skies, rocks, grasses, birds, dogs, laughter, tears, wind, rain, warmth….

Blue Skies


“Lord, the sky’s still blue
For my hope is in you
You’re my joy, You’re the dream that’s still alive
Like the wind at my back
And the sun on my face
You are life,You’re grace.
You are blue skies, You’re my blue skies…”

Blue Skies, c Matt Heusmann Music, Recorded by Point of Grace

Breathtaking….view after view, creation shouting out God’s glory in beautiful harmony of greens, blues, greys.  Alive, feeling so much beauty in your heart that you cry happy tears. Wind, so strong and pure that you feel that you can breathe deeper than you ever have before.   That’s Ireland.  Thank you, God, for making it.  Blessings, Lisa
