Good Morning. Greetings to each one.
Today’s entry began in an amazing way. I had been away and the issue of HOPE was the theme for all that occurred. Where do we centre our HOPE?. What do we HOPE for?. Is our HOPE based on need or want or necessity? Is our HOPE practical, or in the realm of God where HOPE is of a much higher perspective?
Only you know the correct answer in your own circumstances but I decided to surrender much of what was my Hope and instead focus only on what was viewed from a heavenly perspective as being of benefit to others and worthwhile.
I decided to find something white as a symbol of purity. The whitest thing today I saw is pictured here……….
What can you find today in your environment that is the purest white? Perhaps its a flower or a stone or something else?
A thought to ponder……..(no idea who first wrote this)
Within each of us, just waiting to blossom to full potential is the wonderful promise of all we can be.
(This is not conditional upon age……you could be 9 or 99 the potential to be a transforming influence on the environment around you is ever there).
Have a Great and encouraging week.
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.
