The Importance of PERSPECTIVE

Something to think about for a new week.

Day 4(2) Beach south of Glenelg.

Day 14(3) Waves on beach.

Does this beach have any surf or is it deadly calm?

Same day, same beach – changed circumstances – Its all a matter of PERSPECTIVE.

On Friday I received two e-mails only a matter of ten minutes apart and they shared information on the same subject yet the reports were vastly different.  I trusted both sources.

I could not let either piece of information influence my perspective or I could become passionate about an issue and I did not have the whole TRUTH.

Sometimes particularly in this world of media HYPE we need to view our world from God’s Perspective and not form our own opinions until we KNOW absolutely KNOW where the FULL TRUTH separates from perhaps partial Deception or blanketing of circumstances.

A Thought to Ponder

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.
