A child’s simple expression of the Resurrection.
All the theology! All the clever mind analysis and thinking of the Easter Story is superfluous . All the cover over with Bunnies and eggs and commercialism are but a smokescreen.
May be, it should come back to the simplicity of child-like questions and answering this 2018 Easter.
WHO? WHY? PURPOSE? DOES THIS REALLY MATTER TO ME?
DOES THIS HAVE ANY RELEVANCE TO MY WORLD? DOES THIS MATTER TO THE DYING CHILD or to the UNLOVED PERSON IN THE STREET?
If the answer is Yes to any question and the query is still WHY?
Then, the challenge to myself and to everyone else is …..Let’s open up our arms, look above our circumstances and really get the personal answers. Let’s get the answers from ABOVE.
Because it may be hyped up, covered up, analysed until its no more than a myth or a ‘past legend’. Yet, Millions, countless millions have died and are still dying for what is their TRUTH.
What is it all about????? How should it impact my daily life? Can I be changed? Can I be an instrument of change around me???
HE IS UP!
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.
