A Prayer for the week ahead.
STOP – For even a few minutes this week……..Breathe in…….. truly………. breathe in Life and Peace.
LOOK: – Actually look for something – even if your life is frantic and very busy. Look for unexpected beauty
LISTEN: Hear a still small whisper, the swoosh of a windswept street or field. Amid so much clamour of human noise…….really listen!
I woke with something profoundly deep in my heart and spirIt.
This then is my prayer for all who read this blog or simply drop by.
Live a Blessed week with the potential and possibility of welcome surprises!
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 prayer for the week should contain for the weak. I like the stop, look, and listen. We hurry through so much good leaving it unappreciated, unseen, and unheard.
Thank you dear one. Only found out today I could reply to comments.
SO many tiny beautiful birds visiting my little backyard space today. I am enjoying the tender sweetness of their chirping-chatter to me. Hugs for helping me to remember to stop & listen with my heart today.
Appreciation for all you write and do.
