Somewhere Out There…

Somewhere Out There…

In Memory of my Grandfather, who to this day is still the finest man I have ever known. You are missed beyond words. I know you’ll always look after me. I am so proud of who you were and all that you gave me.

Ti amerò sempre.

Deja Vu …

Deja Vu

“What is it about the moment you fall in love? How can such a small measure of time contain such enormity? I suddenly realize why people believe in déjà vu, why people believe they’ve lived past lives, because there is no way the years I’ve spent on this earth could possibly encapsulate what I’m feeling. The moment you fall in love feels like it has centuries behind it, generations—all of them rearranging themselves so that this precise, remarkable intersection could happen. In you heart, in your bones, no matter how silly you know it is, you feel that everything has been leading to this, all the secret arrows were pointing here, the universe and time itself crafted this long ago, and you are just now realizing it, you are now just arriving at the place you were always meant to be.”  ―David Levithan

In Memory…

In Memory

“The weird, weird thing about devastating loss is that life actually goes on. When you’re faced with a tragedy, a loss so huge that you have no idea how you can live through it, somehow, the world keeps turning, the seconds keep ticking.” ―James Patterson

The wind beneath my often severed wings…

Catching Up…

Hey everyone! I can’t apologize enough for the time I have been away. I’m aware it’s been 8 days of little to nothing from me. Not my intention, you all know I blog very regularly, if not daily.

I’m going through some extremely rough shit. I have no power, going on day 8 of this. I am at the library three days a week to re-charge my cell, laptop, and Kindle. I’m pretty sure inmates get warm water, whereas mine is about 20 degrees. That’s wreaking havoc with my Fibromyalgia and pain in general. I do not know when my power will be restored. I am praying by the end of this week things will be back to normal, and I hope you will all keep me in your prayers for this.

In the meantime, I have been preparing some cool things to blog about in the coming weeks and will do my best to update as often as possible while this lack of power is going on.

Wishing you all a great week. I will talk to you as soon as I can.

~Lisa

Prayer…

Prayer

“We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all.

Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results. We don’t want to wait for God to resolve matters in His good time because His idea of ‘good time’ is seldom in sync with ours.”  ―Oswald Chambers

This is all too true.

We’re Never Tru…

We’re Never Truly Helpless, Even If We Feel That Way Temporarily…

“How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples, the myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.

So you must not be frightened if a sadness rises up before you larger than any you have ever seen; if a restiveness, like light and cloud shadows, passes over your hands and over all you do.  You must think that something is happening with you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand; it will not let you fall. Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any miseries, or any depressions? For after all, you do not know what work these conditions are doing inside you.”  ―Rainer Maria Rilke

On 14 May 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the Executive Head of the World Zionist Organization and president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, declared “the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz Israel, to be known as the State of Israel,” a state independent upon the termination of the British Mandate for Palestine, 15 May 1948.

May the Almighty continue to bless and protect Israel.
