A Devotional from the Heart of Atlanta

A Devotional from the Heart of Atlanta

by Lisa M. Prysock

Good morning friends!  This is the day the Lord hath made and we rejoice in it!  I’m so excited to bring you this devotional from the beautiful city of Atlanta, Georgia this morning!   This is a view of the city skyline and the historic hotel we stayed at overnight as we settle our daughter at college. 



I have to admit this is a big change for us!  She’s our baby; the last of five children.  It’s a bittersweet moment as we watch her spread her wings.  It’s hard to let our children go and yet, we spend years training them for this so they can make an impact on the world.  Here she is moving into her dorm:  



We enter this phase of life intrepidly.   She has filled a big role in our family, and not having her with us in Kentucky fills me with all sorts of anxiety.  Will I be able to adapt without her there?  Will she adapt to being away from home?  Will she remember to call home often?   

Yet, one thing resonates in my spirit this morning!  This day did not take the Lord by surprise.  He had had a plan for our beautiful daughter all along.  He knew this day would come!  He is holding each of us by the hand this morning.  This is the day He hath made, and we will rejoice in it and with her!  Whatever our anxieties, worries, or fears, He’s got this and He’s got us for He hath said, I will never leave you nor forsake you!  Be blessed today my friends!  This is the day He hath made!

Author Biography:  

Lisa M. PrysockLisa M. Prysock lives in the countryside of beautiful, rolling Kentucky just outside of the greater Louisville area near horse farms and four board fences with her husband of 19 years.  She homeschools the two youngest of their five children (three grown).  She and her husband live in an average, two story, Colonial style home they are continually updating– with a funny looking Heinz 57 dog; an adorably dainty lady cat; two teenagers; a vegetable garden; numerous flower beds; and a tree house undergoing a remodel.  When not in teaching or writing mode, she is teaching herself to play the piano and violin.  In regards to that, she laughs:  “It’s a pretty painful process, but I’m truly enjoying it!”

Lisa loves all things old-fashioned and has adopted a slogan of “The Old-Fashioned Everything Girl.”  A few of her interests and passions include doll houses, long dresses and hats, gardening, reading the Classics, butterflies, swimming, walking, working out, cooking, sewing, crochet, cross stitching, arts and crafts, scrapbooking, decorating, and drawing.  Recently, her husband remodeled a room in their home with a picture window overlooking a valley which contains a creek and wooded area, transforming the space into a serene and sublime writing office/sewing room.  “It’s a great source of peace and inspiration for me… and pure joy not to be writing from the busy kitchen amidst the household chaos on a laptop.  Growing teenagers eating every five minutes makes for a constant stream of happenings!”

Lisa is an Amazon bestselling author of To Find a Duchess, an Inspirational Regency Romance; a Victorian Christian Romance Series which includes Hannah’s Garden:  a Turn of the Century Love Story and Abigail’s Melody; and ‘The Lydia Collection,’ which includes The Redemption of Lady Georgiana (a Ruth love story of modern day Regency proportions), Protecting Miss Jenna (an Antebellum Era Christian Romance Adventure), and Persecution & Providence (a ‘Jane Austen-ish’ mail order bride story from the Pioneer Era).  She is also the author of a devotional/Bible Study, Arise Princess Warrior and recently released The Shoemaker, an Old-Fashioned Regency Christmas Romance.  Lisa writes clean and wholesome literature that shares her faith in Jesus Christ.  She is a member of ACFW and Louisville Christian Writers.  You can find out more about Lisa at:   www.LisaPrysock.com
