I am a storyteller

I am a storyteller. Many years ago when I asked myself “Who am I?” I didn’t know the answer.  I raced back and forth, searching frantically for myself when I should have stood still.  Hindsight is 20/20 but at least I began my exploration of Self.  This is my story. As I have said multiple…

My World

Chapter 6 Verse 21 I took the above photo yesterday and asked you what it means to me. It can mean anything to you; artful dried flowers, abject failure, the colours of summer.  In a world where the temperature has just been turned up, giving up.  Resignation.  Defeat.  Or rest, breathe, try again? Do you…

How do you know?

Tell me what this picture represents to me.  Not you. Me. What am I saying here? Lisa Dawn  

I said I could

… and I did. I’m not quite sure where this is starting, but it isn’t @ 2:22PM today.  It really goes back before the blog – or any form of my blog – existed.  But it was then that I started to capture the story – late 2015 when I first began to connect with…

My 1st “new normal” Mass

I had to spend a few hours reflecting on this Sunday morning’s mass before writing about it. Attending mass online has become part of my daily routine, and then became a vital part of my everyday routine.  Each day I learned something new, and built my faith one step and one rock at a time…

Fr. Mark Goring

Fr. Mark Goring in Ottawa This man has had a profound effect on my spirituality.  Amen, Mark. ~ Lisa

Ink to Pixel

It has been more difficult than I anticipated to return to writing online. For over a year, my stream of consciousness has bubbled over neatly clipped stacks of white lined sheets titled with the date, section, chapter, page, then categorized and colour-coded with liquid highlighters.  This is how I journal/write. I can Venn Diagram my…

My graffiti with punctuation.

This guy does it well:  Fr. Casey Cole Yes.  Yes I did notice how cute he is but we aren’t going there.  He’s a priest!  And, not old enough to recognize the Benny Hill theme!  LOL! Lisa Dawn   Quote attributed to Fr. Casey Cole.

What is a born-again Christian?

What is a born-again Christian? All of us have a completely different mental image pop into our head with those words.  For some, it will be a pleasant experience; for others, it will mock their very existence. To someone who has seen the light, that rush of warmth and love and peace rolls back in. …

I Am A Born-Again Christian

There.  I said it. I am a born-again Christian. (Hold on to the first thought that popped into your mind when you read that!  LOL.) As I went through the process of “finding God”, I realized that I would look like every other lunatic if I boldly declared “I have found God”.  I was convinced…

Turn off the television!

Someone asked me what little tweak made the biggest difference in my life.  It’s hard to choose just one, as my yellow brick road follows a path similar to an elaborate connect the dots puzzle. Rather than pick one habit, let me take you on a journey of how I adapted to pull myself out…

Lest We Forget

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row,     That mark our place; and in the sky     The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,     Loved and were loved, and now we lie,         In…
