How salty are you? – A Meditation – Something to think about.

Good Morning!

It is Wednesday 26th August here, very early!   Not my usual experience but for some reason I found myself completely awake.  It is 3.2am. I thought I would use the time.   This question was  real in my mind – here I am!


Salt has amazingly useful properties.   It has the inner power to cleanse – it is an ingredient in toothpaste and is unsurpassed as a whitener.

It can bind together and unify what is separated.  An example I read was about a beautiful ice sculpture that was part of a Festival.   The top of an exquisitely carved tower was sliced off by a wind-whipped tree branch.

The officials employed a huge crane to lift the massive chunk of ice while a bucket winch poured salt over the cut top.   The tower was once again lowered into place and the two sections quickly fused back into place.

Salt savours – it has the inner quality which enhances the flavour of foods.  It can make better the bland or tasteless.

We have learnt that moderation  with its usage is more beneficial to health.


Jesus said of people who would follow HIM.  ‘You are the salt of the earth!

We are called to be different in this 2015 world.  By our ordinary lives and our daily living we are to be cleansers by our love and care, ones who bind up and restore the broken be it in lives or circumstances.   And we should be making a difference –  a savoury addition to the perhaps lacking, lost or needy around us. (Just by our life! simply by breathing)

I had an interesting thought here in the early morning.   Are we perhaps to be so salty – so full of God’s Presence so ALIVE in these qualities that we literally erode at the health of dark deceptions.


Something to think about and perhaps act upon for Wednesday and Thursday.   Thursday my commitment is to Prayer. (as led by the Spirit I remember blogging friends).

   Have a great day!                                    Shine your life as a LIGHT of Hope to others.

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.

    VERY interesting thought Faye. To fuse together light and dark. The salt Scripture does come immediately before the light Scripture in Matthew 5:13-14 (in case someone reading comment goes looking) To fuse together light and dark. Brings me to the Transfiguration on the mountain. Immediately following Jesus cast out the dark in the man’s child. Now, there is a thought to go digging for…light fused to cast out the dark…oh my…Resurrection!! Light fused to cast out the dark!! Whooohooo Faye, thank you for sharing:)blessings, denise
