Time for Me to Fly

I am thinking about birds this morning. They migrate for two reasons….to escape cold weather and to find food. Both of these sound great to me. 🙂 They are born with an amazing God-given instinct to know where to fly, how to get there, how to protect themselves. They also do not have to worry about COVID19, or taking PCR tests to travel, or quarantining. 🙂

And as we await yet another winter storm of snow and ice here in Virginia, I am wishing to be a bird! 🙂 I think I would soar right down to Anguilla in the Caribbean, and stay until April.

Also, I am praying for any of you who might be out of power and heat right now. Praying for quick restoration of power and protection for all of you.

In the meantime, I will be doing a lot of imaginary time traveling over here. Feel free to join me.

Love, Lisa

Gift from Heaven


Until yesterday, it has been pretty cold around here, requiring winter coats and heavy sweaters.  But then, out of the clear blue sky, came a 70 degree day, with sun no less!  And we’re going to have another of the same today.  🙂  When one of these days come upon you in the midst of coldness, it makes you immediately want to roll down your windows in the car, turn circles in the grass with your arms outstretched, and move all activities outside, pronto!  A gift from heaven above; God saying in a very small but wonderful way, “I love you; enjoy the day.”  Better than any wrapped gift I can think of.

So excuse me, I’m going to stop blogging now, and get ready to enjoy the day.  (although I’m teaching piano today…can I roll my big piano outside?  🙂 )  Slainte, Lisa

Here’s a lovely rendition of “Count Your Blessings” by Amy Grant & CeCe Winans.  This song helps me see those “heaven gifts” a little clearer.
