Life is a roller coaster of days and emotions. Good days, hard days, crazy busy days, happy, sad, confused. The list goes on and on.
But I am so thankful for all the feelings. All the wonderful crazy feelings that I feel. What a gift from God. Because I would rather feel and love and hurt and cry than feel nothing at all.
This day, this picture, was one of those feelings days. Crying, laughing, loving, and wondering at majesty of creation all within seconds. Imprinted in my memory forever.

Enjoy the wonderful roller coaster of life today. All the feelings. A gift from God.

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

Have a blessed weekend. Slainte, Lisa
