Only a Picture? but……..A Weekend Meditation

An end of week – Time to pause and think.

F272 Lake St Clair.

This is Lake St. Claire – Tasmania. Australia.

Stop and meditate for a couple of seconds.

  1. Do you feel cold?   why?
  2. Does it inspire you to write, paint or pray?
  3. Does it simply make you think…………. so what? just another photo.
  4.      Prayerfully now consider why we may all react differently
  1. ~Vision slide show - Copy  For a moment I will stop, think and pray for all the folk who may visit this site.  Peace, Grace and Hope….a-men.Perhaps, you too could take a moment to sit…..breathe in God’s Peace or simply relax.   Unwind….cease hurry.
  1. Now look at the image again.           Does it still look cold? lifeless?      I took the photo and when I first viewed it I felt it was eerily cold and lonely.  It touched my soul.  I felt an affinity with all the lost, lonely, folk .
  2. Sometimes it disturbs me – the water is restless in a soft gentle way….
  3. Then, today a deep, deep longing to pray came over me.

                                                  Thought to ponder.    How about you?

This is therefore a weekend Hope prayer.   May you find rest and restoration.

Find something beautiful which stirs your soul.


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.

    Overarching it seems cold, lonely, and lifeless but in the depths and heights and hidden in the trees this must be an abundance of life. Guess we need to look a little deeper.
