I am pretending it is an hour later than it actually is here. This thought came as I was preparing for bed. In times past Sunday was set aside as a day of rest. Families, friends and even if we went to Church the day was not meant to be rush and tear and as in so many cases – just another day or even a day when they have to work. I am posting the following picture for you to simply look at. Find in it a glimpse of peace and ponder the true impact of what is meant by the biblical reference to God resting on the 7th day after creation. Would not His Rest have been profound – a total switched-off and place of calm and Holy Peace
I hope you find the image restful. Look out and simply imagine calm and tranquility.
May your Sunday bring a welcome end to your week and I hope you find, if your week had many upsets – certainly there were many tragic and awful events in many lives over here this past week – this is the day to recharge. Connect with the Lord – really CONNECT.
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.
