SITTING AND LOOKING

Good Morning!

           Radium Journey Week 5…………1 day to go!  (Only Monday now left).     Valleys and Hills, small hiccups, recoveries but most of all……….God Time.   A week for gratitude and gentle slotting now into the past.

wseek 5              On Monday I found the picture in a gardening book.    I kept it gently in my mind and during treatment imagined myself on the seat and I questioned ‘where will I go?’.   What can I see?

One of the young technicians asked me at the end of the week. ‘Where did you go this week?’        They had become accustomed to my imaginative walking on beaches etc etc. I even had the dramatic river journey and the overturned canoe.

Week 5 was totally different.  Each day I sat down and every day this week was the same.  I simply sat and used the eyes of my imagination to look around.   Most times I could ‘see’ only drifting clouds or leaves rustling in the breeze ….  but I was at PEACE. It was like a cocoon of well-being.     A few unexpected clitches, like a patch of burnt skin occurred this week  – fixed by love and care, (and gentle new cream)  and days when the humidity at home was a bit overwhelming – enter the grumpy, old lady – me…..who was always fixed by sinking into the cool waters of our water storage tank (Pool).)   Then it rained and for two days we journeyed through rain in torrents where the driver couldn’t see the road.      Wolvi (my home area) had the highest rainfall in the south-east part of our state…….Everything overflowed…..water, water, everywhere. I did not think I’d get to have the Friday treatment).     We made it!
In it all and through it all I personally got back to what is the most profound truth of all.     If you have chosen to follow the Shepherd.   If He is the companion on the Way………Wherever!

BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!   is the greatest lesson we can ever learn.

 

May each of you, no matter what your unique journey go forth into this new week and find a place to sit and take the time to simply BE.   I hope  circumstances wont direct you to this place.   Choose for yourself this place, and a space and time to sit and look.

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.
