Today I choose to light the Peace candle. I light the Peace candle from the lit Hope candle and pray simply that the Holy inner Peace that is the God Gift given to all who walk in Eternity Hope found only in the One who came at Christmas Time. That for them and for others who may encounter the Child in the Manger and the Man on the Cross.
Peace on Earth to all who live according to His Purposes.
My prayer today is for this world…… for His Beloved in all the far flung corners particularly ones who suffer persecution or are captives of terrorists or broken by circumstances.
HOPE and PEACE to all who read this blog!
May HOPE and PEACE pour like raindrops on many places and many circumstances.
In His Name,
ps I know many churches have the tradition of the Advent wreath. My heart indeed joins with each one of them too as they light their PEACE candle.
BLAZE HOPE AND PEACE
Shine with these Lights in local communities and wherever you may journey.
TRULY BE ALIVE!
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.

Thanks for the prayer, Faye. May you have hope and peace this season as well ^_^ It’s especially important that we don’t lose sight of Him in all the holiday buzz and gifts.
A beautiful prayer Faye! I shall be reminded of this each time a candle is lit in our Advent wreath! 🤗
