Good Morning! –
A simple meditative thought to all dear ones out there.
Ten years ago my husband took me on a once-in-a -life-time holiday to England. We went to Hampton Court. This is a famous place with an incredible palace. It has a rich history and stone edifices and wondrous sites with stories of kings and princes and intrigue. Cameras were flashing and people were everywhere. It was a beautiful, memorable day with rush and excitement and rich memories to be storied. My perspective was suddenly shifted. I took a picture.
BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!
This unexpected moment changed my day. This image this year is now the cover for the PEACE MEDITATION Book recently published.
To everyone reading this today my challenge to you is………….No matter what is pushing you along or directing your life circumstances……..look for your own perspective……. Perhaps in chaos or ordered confusion you too may find a sudden unexpected moment of lasting beauty.
Live the rest of this week with a heart for all who may be suffering and a determination to direct others to what is meaningful or beautiful.
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.

Thank you Faye, as I need this today. There is so much swirling about demanding answers I’m not quite prepared to give. I know He is calling me deeper…I know He is challenging me to grow by exploring my OWN perspective, claiming my OWN answers. Your post was just the slice of calm I needed…. Hugs to you!
