Confident and Full of Hope

Good day, dear friends!  Here we are at close of another year.  We’ve run, walked, and sometimes crawled these past 365 days.  Now we find ourselves tying the bow, on the box we call 2016, but before we put the box upon the shelf,  may we take a moment to ask the question:  What has…

Lisa’s Watercolors, Peace & Tuscany

Peace Is a Place I walk across this bridge, Of which I often trod.  Waters ripple and flow, Caressing earth and sod. Breezes comb my hair, Gentle on my nose, Fragrances so sweet, Drifting from primrose. I think of this my place, Daydreams never cease, So everywhere I go I always carry, Peace. *** Tuscany Fill my glass,…

Grace is Found in Hues of Gray

Recently, I had a family member express concern for my soul.  Their reason?  I’m a lesbian. Now, first of all, I realize their concern is an expression of love, but I also know, they fear if they fail to warn me, then my blood will stain their hands, at the great white throne of God’s…

Footbridge To Peace

Finally finished my second watercolor painting.  I call it Footbridge To Peace.  Hope you like it! Before and After Stages

Melody of the Soul

  Sometimes I shiver with the thought of getting old.  This shiver, like a wave of panic, reminds me:  Time marches on and stops for no one.  Logically, I knew this all along; however, now that I’m over fifty, it’s beginning to really sink in. It’s quite the paradox, for as I gaze into the mirror, I see…

Obvious Mercy

A Conversation with God 8/25/16 Me:  Well God, I woke up this morning to three big piles and a puddle.  Had to steam mop the floors-of which- I finished the living room, kitchen, dining room, and hallway-ALL- before 7:30 this morning! God:  Some days are definitely better than others, but… Me:  Yeah, and some nights are…

A Quiet Place

A Conversation with God 8/18/16 Me:  God, my world is too noisy…sometimes I just want to go to the moon! God:  You don’t have to go all the way to the moon…just rest in your quiet place, it’s always waiting for you. Me:  I would but I don’t know the way. God:  Well, that’s the…

Depression Really Sucks

A Conversation with God 8/13/2016 God:  God morning Lisa. Me:  Good morning Lord. God:  How are you feeling today? Me:  Well, Lord…you know I’ve this “depression” thing going on and sometimes it’s almost more than I can bare.  Depression really sucks… God:  So, are you depressed today? Me:  Not so much today…although I do awake…

In the Garden

A Conversation with God in the Garden 8/01/16   God:  Why the troubled look, my child? Me:  This world scares me.  I feel as if I’m waiting for the next bad thing to happen. God:  Come away from the world for a few moments and listen to my word. Me:  Okay, Lord. God:  Walk with…

Unstoppable Love

A Conversation with God 7/28/16 Me:  God, I’m so tired. God:  Come to me and rest. Me:  It’s just this world is getting me down. I’m so tired of hateful, mean-spirited judgement.  So tired of the poor being downtrodden so the rich and arrogant can gain.  I’m tired of people being mistreated because of the color of…
