Good Morning!

Journey week 4 (2)

On the radium journey it is now week 4.     6 days to go.

I am  thankful indeed for prayers, and more grateful than I can say that the undergirding Grace of God and His Presence with me has made this  a journey of both faith and LIFE.  Personally, a ‘zonked out’ lack of motivation is my biggest hurdle, and this can be very debilitating.

Once again in week 4 I asked the Lord to inspire my imagination and during treatment, journey with me.  (I told technicians what I was going to do and where I was going to go).    In so many ways it has been inspirational and even ‘fun’.     On a table there was a book with lots of recipes in it.  I flipped through. Then, in a Homes Section, I saw the  picture of a man’s study with an open door leading to a little pathway disappearing into the distance.   It had a caption ‘I can smell the surf while sitting at my computer’.

I looked at the image closely and told the girls as I lay on the table ready for treatment,  about the picture. They were intrigued,  and I shared later.     I began in imagination to walk down the pathway.    What will I see?   There were several small pebbled steps.   I began to count them…there were ten. A little sandy path meandered towards the sea….. I could hear it pounding in the distance.   (For two days that’s as far as I could journey).     Treatment was over and I had go.

By the end of the week I managed to get further.   I did not delay or count the steps.   On Friday I burst through the trees and saw an expanse of sand in both directions.     Most of all and this I know was pure imagination ………the sand was covered with shells.       It was a moment of absolute beauty and Grace.  Then, I had to get up, dress and start the journey home.   The image above is a very poor reflection of the scene in imagination but it gives a glimpse. One, more beautiful,  I did find on the internet may have been copyrighted I could not verify.

Divine LOVE is like that unmarked shelly beach.

I ask for all of you in this day and for this week ahead that you may know it in your lives like flooding rain.

We journey onwards.    Shalom!

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.

    Lord, please strengthen Faye on this portion of her journey. Thank you for giving her the gift of imagination to bless her. May you carry her and feed her from your table, in the presence of this enemy. Comfort and heal. In Jesus’s name, amen.
