Patch of blue in a cloudy sky

Good Morning!

I thought last night that this morning I was going to post a beautiful short and encouraging thought.  Then last night the remembrance of this photo I once took recurred in my mind.

F303 Determination in nature!

Perhaps today  this thought is for YOU!.    This tree was meant to be a massive rainforest giant.   Circumstances reduced it to a stump. Its entire top was cut off and smashed by another tree.

It’s LIFE is surging ever upward towards the sun and into a patch of blue sky. No longer a mighty forest giant but showing the world a ‘different’ beauty.

Take the time to ‘look up’ today in your life.   Find the patch of blue no matter how ‘gloomy’ or troubled the circumstances.

Find LIFE, HOPE and BEAUTY for yourself……Then share it with someone else!

Tenaciously SHINE A LIGHT!

Have a great day!

About Faye

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.

    Amazing how much damage a tree can suffer and still bring forth new life.
