A prayer for you for the week ahead.
On this personal journey of Advent……. Not tied in ritual, to church traditions, but aligned to calendar dates I will light TODAY, as an act of worship and a prayer for all of you and for the wider world, a candle. In our Word and Worship Service here at home this candle is called the HOPE candle. It will be lit as a symbolic light of HOPE to pierce the darkness of unbelief as we again approach the remembrance of the birth of Christ, Messiah Lord. In His Name I will light this candle with a prayer that HOPE will move in the hearts of all across this world who need a touch of Divine love. I found the quote below quite by accident among my photos to day. Think on this as you journey through the coming week.
May you be the Light of Hope in all of life’s circumstance to someone you meet this week. Blessings and Grace. a-men.
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.

See the Light; There is Hope. In Him is no darkness at all.
Your encouragement of hope reminds me, just as in Matthew 5:15…”Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.” May we each be the light of hope setting the world ablaze this Advent Season. Hugs & blessings to you for the precious reminder!
