A feather held up and blowing in the wind would be gone if the hand that holds were to loosen its grip. Life is sometimes like that feather – there are seasons of fragility and vulnerability. How important it is that we are the human hands that ‘hold up’ a person struggling. For the people of faith we trust implicitly in the Hand of the One who undergirds all our life.
The Holy Spirit (Ruach) is like the wind. His wind will blow away the unnecessary but hold fast to what is important.
My prayer today is not just for myself but to all reading this page.
Wind of God, My Lord, My Saviour.
Blessed Trinity of Love Divine,
Blow this day, I pray, your healing Grace and Peace upon us so we may live not just for ‘self’ but seek for beauty, sow a seed – Make of this day and this week ahead ….something fine.
(A bit like a tapestry or finishing a jigsaw…..every little piece completes a ‘whole’.
Love and Peace!
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.
