From The Top

Brimstone Hill Fortress, built in the early 1700's on St. Kitts.  An amazingly-preserved fort with 7 foot thick walls.

We made it, one step at a time, about 100 steps, and stopped…turned…looked….aaahhh!  Totally worth it.  Whatever staircase is facing you today, don’t think too much about how big it is, or how many steps you have to go.  Just take that first step, then another, then rest awhile, and continue.  You will reach the top eventually; there’s no rush.  And then the view from the top….aaahhh!  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

Overcome the World

“In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world.” ~Jesus, John 16:33

This picture says that to me…we might face government fiasco, wars, unrest, financial distress, feel the need to build forts and have big guns, but there is something greater.  The mountains, the sky, the One who made it all.  Jesus.  And He has overcome.  Joy and blessings for your day, Lisa

Birds In a Bush

DSCN0708

These beautiful snowy egrets are plentiful on St. Kitts in the Caribbean.  Delaney, our taxi driver, said that these birds had been brought onto the island to get rid of tics.   I think that if they would be happy in my yard, they would be a welcome sight here in Virginia.  Tics, be gone!  🙂  Have a wonderful day.  Blessings, Lisa
