An encouraging weekend challenge. (I will certainly be challenged as well.) The first footstep on a pristine sandy beach changes the beach. Only the tide coming back in will obliterate any marks.
This weekend take the time in all your busy plans and circumstances to sit for a moment with a sheet of plain paper in front of you. First of all think of what it means to be LOVED. Make a mark. It could be a coloured pencil dot, a small image, a word, a number. Then from that mark see what you can create knowing that from a perspective of LOVE whatever it is has to be beautiful. This world has such needs and sorrows at the present time……….. set you own spirit free so you can be a blessing to others. Make a mark. Start with something simple. Create a spot of beauty in your life. Radiate it to others.
May there be Peace and Beauty in your end of week endeavours.
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.

Love the “beach” analogy, Faye. I extend it to footprints we leave on the hearts of everyone we meet. If we leave even one, may it be a pleasant one; it is possible it will never be erased, short of a person be comforted and set at peace by Jesus.
