2017 – A new week approaches.
What are your 2017 Goals? Have your been asked this question? So often the answers given and the passions expressed have made me feel tired. It is only Day 7 of this new year.
This watercolour is not profound but it is absolute simplicity and there is a purity about it.
Yes! It is a scriptural truth that if people do not have Vision they will perish. Yes, I do have goals BUT………..I am no longer driven to CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN as the song in Sound of Music proclaims. I will aim for the HIGHEST in my life’s ongoing journey but CLIMBING seems such a striving idea. I simply post this today as a thought. You may well disagree but I woke today with the absolute certainty that what my heart and my spirit yearned for in my private life was PURITY and SIMPLICITY. Not opting out from this troubled world, being a part of it, ….. and being informed……. but separated in my private place of living.
A thought and a prayer for others. May you find a space in your life or a time each day where simplicity and purity are yours.
Have a Brilliant week. Shine your LIGHT in this dark world.
Be refreshed by time and space each day.
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.

This reminds me of the passage in Phil. 4 that tell us what to think on. I sometimes try that scripture as a standard. I find I fall far short.
my private place of living…i love this Faye. I have been doing much of this since the new year ushered in. It has been good for the spirit and nurturing to my soul. I’m slowly re-engaging in the world, with permission for myself to go slowly so that I may absorb all the ‘wonder’ around me that I sometimes miss. Hugs to you, dear friend.
