A new week begins. I met today with a group of people. They spoke about the richness and fullness of their lives. They had Faith, and abundant Hope to carry them forth into this fractured world…..but stoically rigid they faced a new week. .They would indeed be mighty warriors facing whatever lay before them.
Coming home the question above was in my heart and spirit.
This is my prayer as I pen this. May you find inside, you have an absolutely unquenchable bubble of JOY. It may be latent………It has nothing at all to do with Happiness. But certainly for those who are Christian Believers it must be there . This is the bubble/spring gush of His Presence within. It is the certainty you are LOVED. Like fresh water the reality bubbles and Joy – more than Peace and Hope rises. (I know from personal experience the bubble comes into reality in sometimes very difficult and sad circumstances.)
A challenge for myself and you as well. Will you allow this fountain or waterfall to bubble up and bring to others this week …more than Love and Hope but Joy in LIVING?
Have a Brilliant week!
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.

Do you know the song “There Shall be Showers of Blessings?” I’m reminded of it as I read these words. Joy like a river.
