All At Once

See the source image

It happened seemingly all at once. The sky darkened, the wind pushed the tree limbs horizontal, cold rain slashed the windows, howls screeched around our almost 100 year old house. Quick fear, followed by a quick prayer. The verse that brings so much peace came to mind….Be still and know that I am God.

These days of 2020 have produced so much panic and change, that even a benign cold front can make me freak out for a moment. But God. But God. That is what keeps me going, keeps me stable, keeps me at peace. He never changes or panics or leaves. He is God. I just have to be still.

Moments later, the sun is out, the rain has stopped. All is well.

Love, Lisa

Cleansing Wind

Biking wildly down the road, wind on your face, worries behind

Standing at the turbulent shore, waves crashing, wind howling

Skate edges find ice, flying easily, cold fresh wind on your face

Holding on to balance atop a tall mountain, wind buffeting, mind cleared

The cleansing wind

Pull Up the Drawbridge….More Rain Coming

A throw-back photo from Cahir Castle, when my son was a little man of seven, circa 2001.  995

Sure wish we had a strong drawbridge about now, or an ark would do fine also.  Multitudinous amounts of rain forecast here over the next few days.

Stay safe and dry in your castle.  Slainte, Lisa

Brrrr….

I don’t know how it’s feeling in your part of the world, but here in Virginia, it was 41 degrees F this morning.  I’m one of those people who don’t like to put on the heat before November….”just put on another sweater” kind of girl.  Mostly because I get a thrill out of getting a very low electric bill that month.  🙂  But this fireplace is looking really good right about now.  (Picture taken last week at Harvest festival at Graves’ Mountain.)  May God bless you today with warmth in your heart, and a constant fire of His Spirit.  Blessings, Lisa
