New week, new possibilities, new Hope.
It is also TRINITY SUNDAY for those who follow a Church Calendar of readings.
This is always a powerful reminder of just WHO our God is. He is SPIRIT and was from before the beginning of time. He is DIVINE LOVE – revealed in Christ as Saviour.
The blossom cannot tell what becomes of its fragrance as it drifts away, just as no person can tell what becomes of their influence (ie love, compassion, care, prayer, faith) as they continue through life and into eternity.
Natures miracles do not seem like miracles because they have become so common. For someone who had never seen a flower, even a dandelion it would be the most startling event in the world. (I have no idea who may have originally penned these words. I found them and they rang true to me)
It’s time – It’s surely time to become examples of BLAZING LOVE because of the Spirit within. Let’s SHOCK the world. All the people of the world in our immediate area of life. Show the world WHO our God really is.
Blessings, Grace and Peace to all as this week unfolds.
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.

The analogy of the flower’s fragrance to the Christian’s influence is so appropriate. Loved it. Thanks.
