Tenacious tree climber. An early morning visitor.
Technical glitches – the computer failed. Several days passed before restoration and then, the power was ‘switched off’ for maintenance. Days of ‘cut off’ quietness.
One link can never be destroyed by outside circumstances. I prayed. An answer came to me in the night and I made a decision. I wrote it down as it flowed and sent it as a ‘letter’ to the folk who look after my health care. The decision is No to all protection tablets not necessary for maintaining life but ‘protection’ for the……… what if’s. I believe I heard… quality of life with and in HIM means absolutely the future is in His Hands. John 10:10 ‘I have come that they may have life and have it more abundantly’, resonates strongly in my heart. PEACE flows like a mighty river. I thank God for all medical people and all their help. I thank God for my healing after this particular journey. Forward – length of days – future ALL ahead. (as He determines).
Thank you to all who prayed and ‘connected’ with me these past few weeks and Judy I thank you for your comment. Yes! indeed I heard His Answer.
Blessings! Peace! and abundant Grace! be with all who read these pages. May we too find like the koala in the tree illustrated, that although life is precarious and technologies are scrambled and uncertain we can EVER climb and keep on aiming upwards.
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.
