Today I had no intention of writing a blog. I only blog when I have inspiration, imagination or a passionate life-learned Truth to express.
Today for some reason I found myself overwhelmed by all three. I am passionate about my writing life – I have a fictitious family in a historically accurate story and sometimes they become so real…..so real……my heart aches for their journey yet…….it is imagination fuelled by inspiration. ? It can be a dilemma.
Then of course, Valentine’s Day and much ‘stuff’ airy fluffy in some cases emotionalism. Then I read the following and thought perhaps I would blog today after all.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT DEAR ONES.
A human soul cannot live without loving. It must have something or someone to love. It was created to love.
Catherine of Siena. (Of course she had a enduring LOVE for GOD)
Having someone who understands you is HOME
Having someone who loves you is BELONGING
Having both is a DIVINE BLESSING
Indeed this is my TRUTH in the now………a blessing from God…….and in the hereafter…..A Free GRACE Gift from God.
How could our days not be blessed.
Journey onward dear ones, one step at a time!
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.
