For this new week I chose to light a second candle. The PEACE Candle now joins HOPE .
These two now stand as TWIN Lights as prayer for the world.
My Peace I leave with you. Not the peace of this world but My peace.
(Not absence of wars or conflicts but PEACE far beyond our comprehension.)……… the Inner Peace in a troubled environment. He alone IS
PRINCE OF PEACE.
His Presence within becomes our Peace.
Have a great day and a productive and peaceful week!

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.

Faye, I have been contemplating how to deal with the issue of Jesus bringing “peace on earth, goodwill toward man” at this Christmas season. I am absolutely convinced that is true for individuals who draw on Him for their peace, but it is hard to see if one looks with a jaded eye at unrest, war, and evil. Time to dwell on the “whatsoever things” as listed in Philippians. If our mind is focused there, peace is more easily obtained.
