Something to think about – ponder.
Does this image inspire you or make you feel a little sad? Every person’s individual perception is coloured by their life experiences.
Peace is an inner God Gift. This peace can come to anyone in the midst of chaos. It certainly is not always visible.
What we focus on. Choose to look at, read, absorb into our thinking etc does and will effect our day and our attitudes.
This days challenge therefore is: Midst clamour, Conflicting media stuff, job and family issues can I focus my mind on something that I personally find uplifting and inspiring? Can I settle with SERENITY in a place I have chosen?
I hope for you the BEST this day has to offer!
This well-known serenity prayer above. I say a-men although I would like to add one little addition……..I believe God is the GOD OF THE IMPOSSIBLE. I would ask him therefore to keep our eyes focussed always on the beautiful and Holy so we can marvel at what in HIS WILL and Purpose can be the outcome in anything.
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.
