ENDURANCE – A Weekend Meditation

Good Morning!

There is a small island in the middle of the English Channel –  tiny place – a very beautiful place – Sark sits between England and France.

The Sark Tapestry.

They have an incredible history of endurance.   On the cliff top there is a small church (incredibly old) Beautiful.   It has recorded its history. It is and has been for generation after generation.    St. Peter’s.

We have lived here since 1300 BC.      We have been captured by pirates. Almost wiped out by the Black Death, Overwhelmed by the French, Given to England as a gift by William the Conqueror,  Lost a whole generation of young men 18-20 who died in the First World War.

Then we were captured and became prisoners of war to the Germans for six years.

When we were liberated and life returned to normal Island life, only one intrinsic truth remains.


Something to think about.   How enduring is our faith?

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.

    Thanks for sharing this bit of history. All new to me, very interesting. You have illustrated a profound truth – Jesus Christ remains through it all.
