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

Nose to the Wind

Our dog Finnegan has taught me many things, but the thing I love the most is his total appreciation for the feel of the wind on his face.  He faces the wind full on, lifts his nose to smell all the fresh outside, and closes his eyes as if he’s totally experiencing it and loving it.  🙂  After watching him do this several times, I stood beside him and tried it.  Closed my eyes, lifted my head up, and breathed deeply.  And it was wonderful.  Relaxing yet awakening at the same time.  So if you drive by our house and see a dog and a girl with their eyes closed, wind whipping their hair back, we’re not crazy.  We’re happy.  Slainte, Lisa

Pillow Soft

These clouds are just begging for someone to take a nice long nap on them.  Kick your feet up on the end, sink your head down into the downy precipitation, and rest.  The first time that I flew on an airplane as a child, I was alarmed when I saw that we were heading into one of these soft creations.  Would we make it through?  How would it feel?  Passing through on the other side, I was relieved yet somewhat disappointed that the cloud did not hold up like I always imagined it would.  Yet I still  love to think of me sitting on a cloud, watching the world and all its cares float away.  Maybe when we’re with Jesus one day, we’ll be so light and forgiven, that the weight of this world won’t pull us through.  We’ll be free to rest on those beautiful puffs of white.  Blessings on your day, Lisa

The Cloud Came Over the Mountain

DSCN2276

Coming home one evening not too long ago, I saw our mountain enveloped in cloud and mist, and of course, I ran inside to get my camera pronto.  Now if there was a way to get rid of those electrical lines.  But without electricity, there would be no computer, no WordPress, and hence, no post.  😉  Have a wonderful day!  Slainte, Lisa
