A thought to ponder
We spend a lot of money protecting our computers from viruses. We install anti-virus software. What do you/I do to protect our lives? Deception is everywhere- it is the media it sings triumphantly on the airwaves.
Who? What? How? We surely need a powerful anti-virus Protector.
To continue to lead a life of quality, productivity and beauty we must focus on the purpose of our life. Are we to be a BRIGHT LIGHT of HOPE to others? Is this a higher goal than all the present struggles and ‘stuff.’
We must take it in ie read, listen to absorb only what is necessary and helpful and delete/switch off, or walk away from the unnecessary the stuff which would overload our day. We must know, recognise and grieve with the sorrows of this world BUT today so much is overwhelming…………KNOW about it. Grieve. PRAY.
Remember the SERENITY PRAYER…..accept what you cannot CHANGE……..CHANGE PASSIONATELY what you Can. Have the WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
This week may DIVINE WISDOM surround our lives so we live with HOPE and Beauty and share this wherever we go.
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.
