My intention here is not to take away from the meditative thought of yesterday but today will add the extra image. When you look at the whole perhaps the thought of the tiny beginning you are pondering – some project – a story to be written – a gift for a friend or friends can give you a VISION and a dream expanding beyond what you first intended. Beginning with one shell look at what now exists.
This is the visible above-ground view. Underground are the exquisite beautiful private chapel/private prayer chambers.
I know my personal inabilities…….. but each one of us in our own way has still tremendous possibilities. Why not this day while Christmas is still a beautiful reminder in our hearts……put a spot of paint on a canvas, write a word on a piece of paper, Start a letter, Phone an ill friend, What oh what can I start today which could expand and grow?
Something to think about.
Have a beautiful 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.

Today, with the cold rain tapping on the window by my side, I wrote “thank you’ notes to my ” kids” and parents who blessed me with a special gift of “thanks Ms. D” for Christmas. Chocolate filled candy canes, handmade wooden tree ornaments, cookies baked from their hearts. Yes, it won’t be in the “spirit” of Christmas not to thank each from my heart. And how will they know unless I tell them so:)
