A thought to ponder – FRIDAY


The day this photo was taken  taught me a lesson I am still learning in life. I had a goal – to find a path and reach the top of the hill.     I could not find the path and looking for the path became my total passion.   I took this photo to show how the trees were in my way and only later could see the gentle beauty of the journey.

Mothers with children – savour the simple and the gentle on the way to their adulthood.

Make goals each day – it surely is a great way to start.   Have goals, have dreams, have plans but prayerfully BALANCE it all.   Often it is the little insignificant moments which change lives.

   This day will never come again.  It will be gone like all the others BUT perhaps just one moment on the way can be your WOW! incident.


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.
