LIFE – An unusual seven day journey

Good Morning All!

     Hope you found time during the busyness of this Christmas remembrance to simply LOVE.

From my last Wednesday blog – only seven days – on reflection it has been an extraordinary rollercoaster of different experiences and events.

last Wednesday, I had an unexpected operation because of a positive breast cancer test. (7 years ago we all thought this had been sorted, forever).

Today one week after op, I will return to hospital to have dressings etc removed and receive results.    Hope is high in my heart for good results.   It has been a wonderful week in spite of  some personal ‘under par’ adjustments.   Thanks and gratitude for wonderful family support and also the joy absolute in holding and seeing the grandchildren and their Christmas Happiness.

This Highway of Life is indeed a wonderful journey.   It has valleys and twists and perhaps rollercoaster curves BUT…….LOVE is stronger than absolutely everything and that in essence is the REASON for the coming of Christ.  His Presence in me is the  Reason why I celebrate the coming of DIVINE LOVE in the Person of Jesus. Indeed it was a Happy Christmas!

Have a wonderful week leading now to New Year’s Eve and let your capacity to love be ignited as you  journey onwards.

LIVE! love! REJOICE!      SAM_2427

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.
