A simple thought for today.
Today I felt not quite as frail as the kitten but surely aware that the strength and vibrancy of how I once would have leapt out of bed and charged into my day was gone. Circumstances, not simply the passage of age, can at times rob all of us of natural strength and vibrancy. I know of a young man who spends his days in a wheelchair. It was from a friend of his a note of encouragement came to me in the mail. Based on Psalm 27 the note stated. This is what ‘Daniel’ has on his meal tray…..
God is my strength and my strong salvation.
What in this life can I ever fear?
In darkness, weaknesses and temptations –
It is in His Light and Strength
My Hope and Help is ever near.
Muscles, beauty, externals important though they may be for a Season.
It’s relationship with the Divine and His Strength that will ultimately be our eternity journey sustainer.
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.
