Choose this day! A Challenge.
Despite our personal circumstances we can choose how we – react – behave or contribute to our environment. Our choice can c h a n g e the atmosphere.
The fruits of the Spirit of God are…..LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS,GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS AND SELF-CONTROL.
In the frailty of my humanity I have realized I simply cannot be that slightly ‘unreal’ person. The attitudes and cultures of our world scene keep throwing unhelpful ‘STUFF’ all over me.
Therefore, this day I will CHOOSE – a bit like a weapon
PATIENCE…Yesterday was love but today is a bigger challenge.
P A T I E N C E
Today I choose to be PATIENT. In the midst of a chaotic world with no doubt lots of ‘stuff’ and attitudes to destabilise. I choose to be patient.
What will you choose?
HAVE A WELL-LIVED 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.

It is 10:28 PM. I should have chosen to be patient earlier in the day! I’ve already had my rant. Will it do any good? Probably not. (I didn’t have it on WordPress.)
