A Meditative Thought.
From what source do you draw your daily nutrients? What ‘keeps you going’ when the going gets tough.?
Jesus said: John 15:1-4.
I am the true vine. My Father is the vinedresser.
Every branch in ME that does not bear fruit He will take away. He prunes so that it (this vine) may bear more fruit.
You are already clean because of the WORD I have spoken to you.
Abide in Me and I in you.
A branch cannot bear fruit of itself. Neither can you.
Abide in ME.
Live life to its fullest! Draw your nutrients from a Divine source.
Have a great day!
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.

This is definitely the key to life. First one must be a part of the vine, then draw life from it. Joyous, isn’t it?
