Good Morning!

F48 View from Devil's Kitchen.

Today I woke up with a certainty and passion about something I was going to post on this blog.    It will be posted later in the week.

     It is a comment and story about the need for a firey PASSION in our hearts for what we believe.

Something happened as the day progressed.  Everything I read touched my life in a way that surprised and turned me to the quote below, and my heart cry for all who follow this blog is that they too may find a place of REAL REST this day.   A space, a time to simply be ‘alive’

Rest  should never been seen as idleness, to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water or simply watch the clouds float across the sky, this is never a waste of time.   This is , in fact, the  very essence of our humanity the means of ‘connecting’ with who we are and our place in the world.

Sir John Lubbock

Have a great day! Have a great week! Stop! Look! Listen! Live! Pray!


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.
