Three small lights – easily extinguishable

Good Morning!

                     three-lit-candles We wait to remember a long ago birth.

Joy joins Peace and Hope as a prayer or simply to enhance aspects of Christmas that enrich us as human beings and for family times.    Joy as folks choose to see it is often disguised as ‘happiness’ and sadly never can be manufactured.  This Joy, as we journey through Advent is the promise that …..all the little lights by themselves or even in a group are all temporary……… easily extinguishable!

                                                             All these lights, like all frail humanity, need THE LIGHT

to provide the eternity ignition.

That’s what they waited for, for generations.   That’s what we wait for on our journey to Christmas.      It’s coming!      It’s coming!    The remembrance of the coming of  THE LIGHT that can never be extinguished!

A Child was born  long ago. (Look for the shadow of the Cross over the simple stable)………That’s the fullness of the Christmas story. That’s the story of DIVINE LOVE.

Enjoy your Christmas preparations……Keep them simple.   Nurture with messages of Hope, Peace and Joy. Gifts, gifts, gifts all pandering to commercialism and self seeking BUT!………..But!………The real GIFT OF CHRISTMAS is still to come. It’s FREE…but must be fully opened!

Enjoy Life!   Enjoy the journey!

 Blessings and Grace!

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.

    Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord.” What a Gift!
