BREATHLESS EXPECTANCY

Orchids waiting for rain.

In times of deep winter or very dry spring and summer there is a breathless expectancy from nature and often from people.    Those who have a ‘negative’ spin on life will always say …..this is the worst it can be……..those who either look ‘upwards’ for their source of Strength or choose to SEE the possibilities ahead live more contented lives.   Many of our frog species here where I live plaintively cry out for rain in dry times BUT ……every day they still wait in breathless expectancy……Today may be the day.

A new week is before us all.   May you hold in your heart a childlike (just before your birthday) anticipation and await the possibilities in this week ahead with breathless expectancy.

I found a prayer on my date calendar – bit surprising as it not a ‘religious’ calendar.   It simply states and I speak it out now for all of us.

 

MAY GOD SEND HIS SUNSHINE IN HIS WARM AND GENTLE WAY TO FILL EACH CORNER OF YOUR HEART AND YOUR LIFE IN THE MOMENTS OF TODAY.

Have a great week and travel well with humour, love, joy and PEACE..

 

 

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.
