Irritants and Oysters


Not only a new day but A NEW MONTH.     Welcome July 2015

If we start something today what a lot we could complete by the 31st.

oyster_shell-     An oyster shell is certainly not very inspiring.   What is the incredible thing  – there is such a truth in this – It takes an irritant getting under the shell and inside that with the constant irritation  produces a PEARL.

I know now what I didn’t know years ago that it was the setbacks and the irritations in my life – those times even when I felt misunderstood and useless that ultimately produced better than I could have ever imagined. (NOT A PEARL)  but surely a life focus now that clearly sees beneath the often ugly exterior there is always the potential for something infinitely precious and beautiful.

HAVE A BLAZINGLY BRILLIAN DAY!    Go make a difference!

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.
