Love Like Waves

God’s waves in the sky over our home in Virginia this afternoon

Love is like waves…..endless, beautiful, eternal, deep.

Waves can sooth because of their eternal nature.

Waves can carry you because of their properties.

Waves can be calm, playful, or stormy.

Waves can leave you breathless because of their great power.

Waves drown out all else because of their beauty and sound and being.

Waves can fill you up with God’s love, God’s voice, God’s power.

Love, true love, real love is like waves.

Lord, let me love like waves…..endlessly, relentlessly, unconditionally, eternally.

Christ in me, Christ before me, Christ behind me.

Christ to my left, Christ to my right.

Like the waves.

Love, Lisa

Held

holdinghands

Nothing was better as a child than to be held.  Nightmares, calling out in the darkness, Mom would be there, I was safe, I was held.  Travelling to a new place, Mom or Dad would take my hand, lead me through the uncertainty, the newness, until we were in a safe location and they could let go.

“Yet I am always with You; You hold me by my right hand.” ~Psalm 73:23

God is always there, in the darkness (which is not dark to Him), in the uncertainties (of which He knows the outcome), in the newness.  He made you, He loves you, Jesus will never leave you.  You are held.  Blessings, Lisa

Father and Son

The father sits, close enough to help, but far enough to free

The son explores, tests, sees, hears, lives

The father watches and waits for the moments

The son asks, listens, loves

I love, love, love this picture of my husband and son in Ireland when he was small.  So much in one image, so many good memories.  Enjoy your day today, and be blessed.  Lisa

“Watch that wing!  Pull your nose up!  Keep on the outlook for fish, and don’t forget….have fun!”  ~Teacher Bird

My three birds are have flown out of their nest into various schools this morning.  Praying for their day to be one of joy and newness and friendship and learning.  And for them to have fun on the journey.  🙂  Slainte, Lisa
