Are you beautiful?

Good Morning!

A question for you to ponder.  It is not simply addressed to women.  A man known to me after his death was spoken about as ‘The most beautiful man our town has ever known.’ He survived several cancer operations and treatments and knew warfare and sorrows and loss.   He also knew the reality of a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ.  This friendship not only guided but transformed his life.

HOW BEAUTIFUL ARE YOU?   HOW BEAUTIFUL AM I? (in the natural my answer is surely…….

Not at all.

.cross in clouds

Yet, When the mists of time dissipate and the earthly has either broken off or disappeared what will be left?   Read 2 Cor.  Paul writes about the falling away of the natural revealing what is important.

It not about the wrinkle creams, face lifts.  hair-colour, the stunning clothes or jewellery (although these can make the journey interesting)

It’s all about a PERSON

His Presence WITHIN.

If only the Church of Jesus Christ would full appropriate this truth of PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP

(this world we live in would stop its decline into ugliness)

PRESENCE  -An eternal actual reality. My God Lives!

Have an amazing day.    Simply BE!

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.
