Good Morning, dear blogging friends.
This picture is not a morning picture. It is, in fact late afternoon, when storm clouds suddenly rolled in. I took the photo and hurried back to the car. We desperately need the rain. This Spring all life is struggling because no Spring rain has fallen and we are having the heat of Summer very early. It did not rain (sadly)…The sun came out again and the evening and night were very warm.
Seasons change, In this life there is incredible WONDER. Moments of deep reflections. My husband is facing (unknown as yet) health concerns. Folks are telling me I need to be more ‘OUT THERE’ in promoting my life, books etc.
Today’s note on a date pad made me pause and be INCREDIBLY THANKFUL.
I WOULD RATHER WALK WITH MY GOD IN THE DARKNESS THAN GO ALONE IN THE LIGHT.

Travel well and look for the SURPRISING!
If anyone wants to know more about me;
http://www.fayeroots.com shares some ‘stuff’.
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.
