The recipe for success...

"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither.
In all that he does, he prospers." Psalm 1:1-3

The many faces of Ireland

May I introduce to you some of the wonderful people I was privileged to meet...

Sweet little Fiona

Tom and Noirin De Lasa...they were wonderful beyond words!
A kind lady who invited us in for tea and showed us some old pictures
A man at the train station

Our young tour guide on the train


Tom De Lasa with two of his great loves: his guitar and the Word of God

The faces of some crazy mountain climbers!

(me, Lady the dog, Tom, Larry Skrant, and David Darragh)


And last, but not least, Ben...the wonderful dog from the B&B where I stayed!

I'm Back!

Imagine white sandy beaches, purple heather covered hills, blue mountains, and green, green, green everywhere....and you have barely even scratched the surface of the beauty of Ireland! It was a feast for the eyes everywhere I looked! But the most beautiful thing I experienced by far was the people. Such hospitality and warm generosity at every turn...I was so blessed by it all! Here are a few pictures to give you a tiny taste of my trip:
The beautiful coast of Ireland
Delicious food!

New, wonderful friends!


It was a wonderful time altogether and there are many more pictures to come! The whole trip was like an incredible gift to me that seems like a dream. I am so grateful for the chance I was given to meet some of the most wonderful believers, learn a few rousing Irish tunes, experience a good dose of Celtic culture, and bask in God's amazing creation.

Praise the Lord for the good gifts that He gives!

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,

coming down from the Father of lights..."

~James 1:17

I am in London now...just arrived a few hours ago. It is a rainy and cloudy day today...a little dreary but great for taking pictures! I was telling my family that it is like listening to the BBC all around you everywhere you go...the accent is pretty great. Just had my tea and feeling pretty grand! I will be posting more soon.

God bless
