A new day……a new chance to live well.
A safety pin is only a safety pin when the clip is closed to keep the sharp point ‘contained’
Imagine if ‘self-control’ was chosen to be the CLIP on a sharp tongue, the utterances of nasty words and angry behaviour this day. What a difference it would make.
There is also another thought for a safety pin. What it holds when the clip is closed secures the contents and stops it from slipping away. Imagine if it holds only beauty, LOVE and KINDNESS and it simply won’t ‘let it go’
Thoughts to think on.
Shine a Light today in all your circumstances!
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.

I’m thinking it might be good if the tongue had such a device at the end so it could be secured in a safe manner! Blessings, Faye.
Wonderful thought, Faye 🙂 ♥ ❤
