When fog begins to clear how sharp and in focus everything suddenly becomes.
There are times when, in every life, it is as if life itself is ‘in a fog’. It can be impossible to clarify thoughts, goals, directions and if the fog is thick, even the purpose for your life itself. How important it is when we are challenged in this way to have an ‘anchor’ – to absolutely KNOW that even ‘unseen’ our very souls are ‘anchored’ to an unchanging Person or Passion. This is not like a ‘crutch’ . If someone simply relied on a ‘crutch’ to get them through life the very crutch could be lost in the mist. Holding on until the fog begins to lift takes character and tenacity but for those with FAITH it is ever the heart’s yearning for ‘better’. HOPE in the gentle wind. All the decisions held on ‘hold’ in the smothering tenacity of the fog’s cloying presence are clarified in stunning reality and brilliance when the fog starts to dissemble and once more the sunlight (maybe just a small shaft) filters through. May your week ahead be filled with golden moments when clarity becomes a priceless Gift.
An aim, whether it is reached or not makes great your life. Robert Browning
I will be away this coming week. For us all may we:
and be a Light in dark places.
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.
