A thought to ponder this day. Who are you? What is your identity? Do you wear many caps? Are people expecting you to fulfill a specific role or function? Is that really you? Is it ALL you are or can be? Is your career or your job ALL you are? What is eternal?
Personally I spent many years with this question. Am I wife, Mother, writer, Christian leader ? etc etc. …… I am happy now that this blog site says it all. It’s incredibly simple. I personally am a Passionate Creative Christian. The very title of Christian must carry with it all the responsibilities for everything else in life. If Christian means following the Shepherd then all else must be in His order.
Passionate implies that at times insights will be written perhaps with more rush and less grammar awareness. So, Passionate for Him, Passionate for creativity.
WHO ARE YOU?
Today think, pray and see if you can identify yourself in three or four simply words.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
Find beauty in little things!
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.

I am a wife, a mother, a care giver of an elderly parent. I am an Elementary secretary, and a writer. But when the world and the pressure of responsibility becomes to heavy to carry, I have to remind myself of the question asked of Rebekah in Genesis 24:23. “Please tell me whose daughter you are?” And then I remember who I am, and Whose Kingdom I am from. Not a princess who lays on pillows all day, but one who goes about the Kingdom and who is available to answer the question…. I am the daughter of the King of kings, and yes, “there is room in (my) father’s house…” Genesis 24:23. Thank you Faye another good question to ponder.blessings, d
