I certainly did not intend to maintain the restore theme for more than one day. I hope it has been beneficial for others reading this blog. For me personally it gave me an impetus to live a new day with all that needed to be done and add to it one simple extra as a challenge to ‘restore’. Yesterday for me it was a file of papers. Nothing important or grand really. Yet, I simply ‘restored’ it to a more accessible and easier format. It has made an enormous difference.
Today’s main focus is Prayer but I pick up the challenge again to somewhere, even if the prayer journey is much longer than usual, I will also ‘restore’ 1 thing. I sense today it may be personal. A letter to write or a card to send.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
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.

Having a goal of a “restore” per day. What a novel suggestion. Something gone wrong, make it right. A good place to depend on “I can do all things through Christ…” scripture.
