A new week lies before us.
News from my home state and the entire east coast of Australia continues to bring stories of heartache and loss. Media focus is on ‘this’.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

Though we travel the whole world to find the beautiful and the peaceful unless we carry it within us we will find it not.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
This does not mean we don’t pray, give, care, for all who are suffering and in need. It’s simply a response to be an encourager in the middle of ‘distressing’ pictures and constant stories of sorrow.
This week’s challenge for us all. Let what we carry within SHINE FORTH and bless the world around.
May we bring both BEAUTY and LIGHT to those who need it most.
Allow your week to be both productive and blessed .
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.
