A Mid-Week Thought

Good Morning!

               Last night I had a dream.  (It had been a fairly difficult day and I was very tired).  I dreamt I was writing a mid-week blog.   I woke up with this entry clearly on my mind. Perhaps it is to be a blessing for someone  ‘out there’.


I often walk a gouged out forest road where they lately have been harvesting all the trees.

The road has been difficult to walk upon and I usually walked with care.  After heavy rain I came to a section that was washed clean and the almost marble-like strata caught my attention.  Washed of dirt and grime there were layers of rock fused together. Some of the colours were stunning in the sunlight.   (Dirt and constant road traffic and this section of road is now difficult to find).

A quotation from Robert Louis Stevenson somehow fitted as I began to write.

He wrote…..The best things in this life are nearest, breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers or wonders at your feet, duties in your hands and the path of God is just before you.

May this week still unfolding before you bring both blessings and surprises. I’m still amazed at the beauty I discovered in a rough road not going anywhere important but just a part of life.

Blessings! Peace! and Hope! to all.

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.
