What you SAY, What you BELIEVE. What you CHOOSE………all matter

STORM CLOUD - Copy (2)

Good Morning!

                                                     Mid-week thoughts to ponder.

              Oh! Look there’s a big storm coming.  My whole day will be ruined. My life’s a MESS.

This day is going to be a really bad one.   I think I should go back to bed!  I fell over the cat, I burnt the toast. My hair’s a mess, I look fat and flabby, everything’s a mess.  It’s never going to get any better!!

Am I alone or have all of you had days like this?

How I used to handle these kind of days and how I am now learning to handle them are vastly different.

I believe what you say MATTERS. This day is a write-off or Wow! what a dreadful start! I believe by the afternoon there is Hope for peace and restoration.  I CHOOSE not to let this ‘agro’ go with me to affect others.   I CHOOSE ……..KINDNESS and LOVE.

Someone, I think it was Augustine, said……..I see a big storm coming, I will take all precautions to guard my life but my faith assures me that this too will pass and I will believe for better ahead.


For all of us this day and for the rest of this coming week I pray that all storms, whether they be natural or spiritual, or even simply the ‘normal’ hassles of  ordinary life will open the doorway of Hope to a place of Peace and inner tranquility even if the ‘outer’ still surges.

chyn1                                                    Blessings and Grace over ALL THINGS.


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.

    A beautiful picture. It would turn the mood of a grouch if she would stop to look and take a look at the scene and the Creator.
