The Challenge of a new week.


          Perhaps the image of an open book is nothing like the week ahead for you.    Maybe it  is  crammed with things that MUST be done before you have even  fully opened your eyes.    Simply gaze at the image for a moment.    Take a deep breath….. I would say from my perspective ‘Breathe in the Presence of God’.

open-book-9273404Among the ‘have to do’ can you now in your imagination or on a sheet of paper write one word?


Every day, in every life there is an opportunity.   When one presents itself grasp it with both hands and maybe you’ll be astonished at day’s end by what you have achieved. Perhaps you’ll simply write a sentence, Make a phone-call, Take a photo, Say hello to a stranger…Whatever!

I’m going write the word opportunity on a piece of card and maybe tomorrow tell you what happened in my day.   Please share as well.


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.
