Joie de vivre, Part deux

This is what I am trying to do lately. Not think and figure and plan…..just watch and listen and be. I fail many, many times at this, but the times where I can rest in the beauty of what God has made and Who He is…..what joy.

“You have made known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.” – Psalm 16:11

Love and joy to all of you today, Lisa

Never-Ending

Kerry Cliff Walk, near Portmagee, Co. Kerry, 2011, Lisa Lyons

Never-Ending….

Synonyms: continuous, unceasing, constant, continual, perpetual, unfaltering, permanent, steady, relentless, persistent, endless

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End [never-ending].” – Revelation 22:13

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal [never-ending] life.” – John 3:16

“The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting [never-ending] love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” – Jeremiah 31:3


“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away [never-ending].” – Matthew 24:35

I am thinking of permanence, of unchanging, of persistent, of everlasting love this morning. Long after this earth has passed away, God and God alone will remain. The wonderful, beautiful Jesus Christ will be the shining city on the hill.

Love Him more…..that is the only thing that will bring my heart contentment and rest. Not the vacation, not the new clothes, not the fake “happy” smile. Just Him.

Never-Ending.

Love, Lisa

Snow

Snow came to Virginia. Heavy, wet, white, covering, pure snow.

The hush that comes with snow came also, the peace, the stillness.

Some of my favorite snow and winter quotes:

Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight, at the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more, when he bares his teeth, winter meets its death, and when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.” -C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

“Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the Lord,
“Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool.” – Isaiah 1:1
8

“And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.” – Matthew 28:3

Thank you, God, the giver of the snow and the rain and the wind and the sun. You give us so many good things, things that bring joy and peace to our hearts. You are so good. Love, Lisa

Where You Breathe the Best

Near Slea Head, Dingle, Ireland

I thought it would be fun today to find out where all of you dream/breathe the best. The place you travel to in your imagination. The place you would go to right now if there was no COVID in the world. It might be where you are right now, or it might be somewhere far away. Somewhere you have been, or somewhere you would love to go.

Let’s all travel together today virtually.

Ready….set…..write! 🙂 Love, Lisa

P.S. I did not say my place, as I know you guys already know! heehee 🙂
