A Dream – Reflection

Good Morning! – A mid-week moment of contemplation

233 Reflections in the Gordon river. - Copy

Last night in a dream, I returned to the Gordon River, TASMANIA,  where a few years ago I took this picture.     Today, when I woke up I knew it was to be part of my ongoing reflective, more contemplative journey, to Easter remembrances.    I found three reflection scriptures:

PAST:     Mark 14:72…… Peter reflects on what Jesus had said about the crowing of the rooster and his denial.        Peter wept.       Knowing forgiveness yet ..not wallowing..but remembering.

PRESENT:    Luke  14:31-33 .   A reminder that being a disciple will be at a cost …..entailing surrender.

FUTURE;      Acts 21:12-14        Paul is determined to look ahead in his Calling to follow His Saviour and walks onward despite warnings of dangers in Jerusalem.

In simplicity, two words have come clearly to mind.      Humility and commitment.       Maybe, this is my mid-week challenge  to live in my ordinary life.

Perhaps, indeed for ALL of us  to live  in everything we undertake,  be it the mundane, the necessary………the caring for others, the pesky phone calls,……..the daily may be irritations,  or the more ‘enjoyable’ when we flow in something we love……… that humility and commitment be the yardsticks by which we judge successful completion.

Gentle Thoughts for us all to ponder.

                           LIVE!  Shine His Light in your daily  World


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.
