Sunday, I pay tribute to all mothers wherever they may be – ones in past, present and in the future.

To ALL mothers in our experienced history and the ones recorded in the Bible who gave birth to future men of God who lived lives on Earth’s pages and made a ‘difference’. I pay tribute to Mary,  Christ’s mother,  ‘May it be done to me, according to God’s Will’ and left us an example of self-sacrificing faith.   I pay tribute to my own mother, who died in 2004 and left me a legacy of confidence in being female and taught me about the value of ‘genuine’ character of LOVE.

I also remember today that during this week, the church calendar had Christ’s Ascension Day as a remembrance.

What an opportunity to add gratitude today, to the joyous reminder of the Promise of Jesus…..”If you love and follow Me.   You too will go where I go.’

He went up!!

Thank you all MOTHERS……Thank You to our God for all His richest Blessings.


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.
