Viewing life with a heavenly mindset.

A mid-week contemplation.


Life is what we are alive to.   It is not length nor is it breadth.   Be alive to…..goodness, kindness, purity, love, history, poetry, music, flowers, stars, God and eternal HOPE.

Maltbie D. Babcock.

Perhaps you know who Maltbie was.   For me it was the day I took the photograph above from the window of an aeroplane, I KNEW that with the increasing violence and unrest in this world – I could change what I could…..make a difference where I was called of the Lord to do so BUT: my space of life had to be LIVED in an atmosphere somehow ‘above’ the clouds.    Return to the reality every day but know my own space ABOVE it all.   My God is a PERSONAL GOD.

Hope the rest of this week flows well for you.    Do your 100% in what you are trying to achieve but remember……nurture you own soul. Nothing else has eternal possibilities


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.
