Stillness

DSCN2052

“We all hunger for stillness, whether we know it or not.  There is a great attack on us to distract us from this powerful place with God.  Be still and know that He is God.”  ~based on Psalm 46:10

I long for this, for the peace, the quietness, the nothing for a time…..listening for the small still voice of God in the quiet.  Blessings, Lisa

Tuesday Tree Tribute

1527

Trees are wonderful.  They shade, they cool, they are beautiful.  They speak of unchanging things, and give a small glimpse into eternity, where the things of Jesus do not change.  They speak of strength and resilience.  Here are some of my favorite trees that I have come across.  Slainte, Lisa

Wood-Elves

657

When I was a child, I would play wood-elves outside for hours.  We had a ring of box bushes that I would sit inside with my collie, Laddie.  He would sit solemnly, guarding me inside the ring, and I would pretend to be a wood-elf with all the rest of my imaginary wee folk with me.  I would find opened walnut shells on the ground; they were the elves’ beds.  I would sit very quietly, because everyone knows that elves can’t tolerate the noise of humans.  This picture, taken in Shenandoah National Park, is the closest I’ll get to being a wood-elf.  Due to the strangeness of angle and camera perspective, I look smaller and more diminutive of leg than usual.  But this makes me strangely happy.  🙂  Go figure.  Slainte, Lisa
