A heart tribute of caring and prayer for all who are grieving, suffering, or struggling as a result of the shooting event in Texas on Sunday. From across the seas united.
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. Although I do live in Texas, I am about three hours east of the horrible incident. We are hurting so much in my area that we cannot bring ourselves to talk about the details.
Thanks for expressing care from far away physically but close in spirit.
Your tenderness of care is not only inspiring, but encouraging as well. Thank you Faye for taking the time to express these sentiments which are sure to touch many hearts in need. Hugs and blessings….
