The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want

He makes me lie down in green pastures,

He leads me beside quiet waters,

He restores my soul.

He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for You are with me;

Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies

You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life,

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.  ~Psalm 23


I pray these words bring solace and peace to your soul today.  Blessings and love, Lisa

Sitting By the Riverbank


Sometimes I want to take on the world, walking vigorously, exploring all there is to see.  But other days I just want to sit by the riverbank and watch it flow.  Listen to the waters flowing over the rocks, watch the birds overhead in flight, rest my body in the soft green grass.  Both ways have merit and worth, just differently.  Action and thought.  Both integral parts of this thing that God has given us….life.  “He leads me beside the still waters; He restores my soul.”  ~Psalm 23:2b-3a

Blessings for your day, Lisa

New Breath, New Chance

“If you make a mistake in a song, don’t forget every breath is a new beginning and a new chance.” – Julia Gregson, Jasmine Nights 


How true and beautiful.  A new day, a new beginning, a new chance.  A brand new morning, fresh and clean.  You can sing your song again and people will hear your new rendition.  Go ahead, take a deep breath, and let those notes come out.  I pray beauty and grace and love in every phrase, for me and for you.  Slainte, Lisa

“He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.” – Psalm 40:3a
