Good Morning!



    Do you ever feel insignificant in our world of constant upheaval, violence, weather vagaries, evidence of rampant evil almost daily?    Do you feel the attitudes of the large and powerful appear to dominate thoughts and thinking?    Even the God of MONEY appears to rule the destiny of nations and people groups.  Jobs and people’s rights overwhelming…….. innocence and nature with all its beauty. Deception appears to be in control of family and core values of daily living.    Sometimes it’s like the small dog pictured above …….the looming shadow over life may not ‘take me out’ but certainly could squash my role and purpose.

Yes! I can certainly relate to ALL of this.

BUT………there is a truth that rises in my heart.   Even the ‘seemingly’ insignificant can be powerful.      It takes one small light to dilute darkness.     One small clear voice to silence a room of strident clamour.   The seemingly INSIGNIFICANT with certainty of purpose and DIVINE LOVE as their banner can dispel darkness.   It is all a question of STANDING on solid ground.

My FRIEND stands with me.     His Presence is beside me. in front of me, behind me and within me.    Do you KNOW…..really KNOW my FRIEND?

The Gift OF His Presence until eternity is FREE.      He died for ALL.

PEACE  is one of His Holy Gifts.  Choose peace (internally) as   today’s treasure.




And when you pray for all those who grieve today, let your tears for them be like the rain Of OUTPOURING GRACE for a better tomorrow. bLACK SWANS ON on Darling River N.S.W.

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.

    “an outpouring of grace” It is sad that it takes tragedy to remind us how much alike we are. We suffer as we see others suffer. For a time, it brings us together. But a short time only for all Trump haters. Yep, I feel like that little dog up there. I’ve just got to remember that big dog is a Big God!
