EVER FACED A SLAMMED DOOR?

Good Morning! – New Day – New possibilities!

closed-door bright redPerhaps like me your answer to the question above is a resounding yes! It may not be as emphatic as a red slammed door  but significantly life changing. It can be job loss, accident, death, illness or natural progression of passing years.

My gran told me when I was a child ‘You must not let life cease when a door slams. Keep looking for an open door.’

I faced a significant slammed door – what I thought was my future… wasn’t.  These morning blogs are meant to be brief and encouraging so I will not share the details.  It does, however give me an understanding of the dilemma of others.

No!  I did not find another door.

But, I looked up and found an open window –

So much I could write here but in simplicity……..Through that open window I found  HOPE.

Hope is the fuel to carry us all through this life.  Where can we find HOPE?

Look for beauty in this day.  Live!

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.
