A weekend Thought to Ponder

Half of the world has entered its phase of Spring-time when even if your Winter has not been very cold there is an expectancy of  Hope for the warmth of Summer days, of water activities and beaches with holiday atmosphere and then Christmas and another year’s ending.

The other half of the world is closing down and preparing for the down-time and the more home focussed activities time with Christmas expectations of cold and maybe even snow and icy roads, frosty windows.

Isn’t this like a picture of life.  – Many facets, many changes, many unexpected things. Sometimes an overlapping of joy and sorrow.


God has not promised skies always blue,

flower-strewn pathways all our lives through

God has not promised sun without rain,

joy without sorrow, peace without pain.

But God has promised Strength for the day,

rest for the labor, Light for the way,

Grace for all trials, help from above,

unfailing sympathy, undying Love.

 Annie Johnson Flint

Whatever the Season at your place or whatever the Season in your life –

May you have a special weekend.

Choose to have LOVE – Choose to be a Light of Hope to others.

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.
