DAYS of BEAUTY – and DAYS OF GRACE

Good Morning!

 A gentle Sunday…….Something to think about.20171210_172253

Every day it is possible to look for something beautiful as we travel.   But, circumstances and life often mean it is the impacting and stunning beauty of the world around that brings a jolt of Hope.    The beauty of a sunrise, a Moon a Golden Day when the whole world shines.  What about the days when all is grey both in reality of life and in outside circumstances?            How wonderful it is when we see then,  something unexpected – easily overlooked, but still beautiful in its own right!

After forest clearing, bulldozing and levelling ready for more pine planting,  unexpectedly a tiny pocket of small wildflowers have burst through.   Only a few struggling to survive.   Around them destruction but this small place has the ability to ‘shock’ just like a massive more dramatic display.

Made me think again of life and faith.         Many, many, days of memories and great beauty……then the times when perhaps we struggle BUT…………..these are the GRACE days when we simply are meant to settle.    As believers we KNOW we never journey alone.

Thought for the days ahead………. Look for beauty…….accept where you are at. Beauty and GRACE together.   Let your Light  clearly shine for others.

REMEMBER……..A smile is worth a thousand word pictures.

puppy smiles.

 

 

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.
