Ben Bulben, close by
Ben Bulben, just a few moments later and few hundred feet down the road
Sometimes when we are too close to something, it loses all perspective.
Clouded, muddy, overwhelming.
Distance and time usually help.
Taking a step back, or two or ten.
Waiting for a day or a year.
The clouds will pass, and the beauty of the mountain revealed.
“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning.” – Psalm 130:6
Hanging heavy in the sky above
The dense white cloud gives up its rain gently, effortlessly
Falling upon the earth in a mist, in softness
Barely touching the skin like a blanket of water and air
Sky and earth together
And thus is the state of my mind this Wednesday….Blessings, Lisa 🙂
(Lest someone think this is real….let me reassure your heart that it is only paint markings on these dear fuzzy ones.)
Cloud or mountain….tree or church….the mysteries of God are everywhere
The things we know….or think we know…..are nothing next to what He holds
We can only stand and gaze and wonder….and one day see
Drumcliff, County Sligo, Ireland, outside of St. Columba’s Parish Church
Have a blessed weekend. Slainte, Lisa
OK, Honey….I’ve found our house! 🙂 Perfect land, view; we just need a roof, bigger walls, electricity, plumbing…..no worries. We could be settled in no time. 😉
Beautiful County Sligo, near Drumcliffe.
