12 Beautiful Flowers

A rose starts out as a bud.   The potential is in its essence but what it becomes is far more than its struggling start.

My goal on this blogging journey is to each day as a personal discipline to write a simple – not lengthy or profound – statement here.  The power of the PEN is MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD –  this I believe.


We would not be fully human if we did not see, accept and have empathy and grieve over events yesterday.   These must  be held in our hearts and our prayers.

GOOD MORNING!  or GOOD EVENING!     Let expectancy be alive in your life and in your thinking.  Only expectancy will stop you  settling but inspire you to use your pen and your life to make a difference to someone else.   Expect the bud or (a new beginning – a challenge etc) to burgeon forth into a rose.

May your journey be alive and your day or evening full of surprises!

(One surprise I had yesterday – not significant or important but encouraging. If you are interested   a link     https://open.abc.net.au/explore/96691   This should take you to the story of a personal event  a kind of miracle. Lost and found – a ring – a holiday. The little story  was published yesterday. )

One bird alone is transformed when he soars above and beyond the fence.


About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
