Weather Seasons and life

Good Morning!


Violent weather patterns have been plaguing every part of the world at the same time.  Both Spring and Fall seem to be causing this mayhem.   My thoughts and prayers are with all who are struggling with this including power outages etc.   Once again quite inexplicably I have been unable to access even this site for a couple of days.

Violent winds and storms are a little like what can sometimes come into our lives.  Seasons change and it is not only in the Spring of life when we are passionate, hopeful and full of energy but also in the Autumn and Winter (full Summer as well) that difficulties come.  We must learn to keep our focus always steady on what is worthy and meaningful.

     I sat in the backyard and watched a violent wind slashing at large white clouds overhead.    They were being stripped.  Fascinated I could see shapes form and disintegrate, shred and reform.    I wanted to go inside and get my camera but was afraid I might miss something.   Later I found the image on the page today.   Not sure where it is from but in a classic way it represents what I saw as the clouds were blown to pieces.  It was as if people were also being displayed as ‘in the mix’.   Greeting to all of you.   We are on a journey together in this life and the way is often ‘bumpy’.

                                  Have a Great Day and week!.    Bring Love, Hope and Encouragement to others on your journey.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.   The longer I live, the more my mind dwells upon the beauty and wonder of the world.    John Burroughs.

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.

    Always enjoy reading what you have to share! You reminded me to stop and smell the roses or, clouds… I seem to work until I’m exhausted and then fall into bed. Let us both have a great and blessed week!
