I have been away for a few days. I acknowledge with gratitude it was a Hilltop experience of great spiritual value. In simplicity it was a God Time!
I came home to my own place of peace and well-being as always grateful for what I have and the person I share my life with.
I fell unexpectedly into a valley place. Does this ring true for you as well? From the highs to the lows – the main problems if analysed is ‘self’…letting the focus become centred once again on ‘self’. No major dramas just a pricked balloon sort of deflating WHOOSH.
In attitude and life resolve we all, I think, need not only to keep ‘Looking upwards’ but make a determined effort to keep climbing in and through minor and major upheavals.
CLIMBING, EVER CLIMBING WITH THE HOPE FOR BETTER ALWAYS BEFORE US.
Hope the week ahead brings unexpected Joys into your life even if there are clouds.
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.
