Lost in song

In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, God is pleased when we’re pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker’s praise without anxiety.
A W Tozer

“Alone with none but Thee, my God,
I journey on my way;
What need I fear when Thou art near,
Oh King of night and day?
More safe am I within Thy hand
Than if a host did round me stand.”

St Colum Cille (Columba)

  1. So simple, so sweet, and so touching is your offering of praise today, lil cookie! It has blessed and made my day. Love and hugs, N 🙂 ❤

  2. Love that. Alone with none but Thee my God. I am heading off to a course today and I shall have that refrain in my head for company.
    You sure did manage to see lots of Ireland. Are these photos all from this visit or had you been before?
    Love the Robins. They are so curious and so territorial. Do you know the story told here of how the Robin got its red breast?

    • these are indeed from the recent trip–I took almost 1800—not all good or worthy however 🙂
      Our robins are very different looking from the European Robin—they look nothing alike which is so funny—
