Last night I accidently tried to clean my teeth with SAVLON. (Savlon is a helpful very clingy cream for cuts, burns etc). It certainly does not clean teeth. The tube feels like toothpaste, It looks like toothpaste on the toothbrush but……it surely does not ‘taste’ like toothpaste. My mouth was left with a decidedly yukky taste and feel. Of course we laughed.
There are many things in life that look good, make us ‘feel’ good but certainly do not have eternal or intrinsic worth.
Love, Joy, Peace, Hope, Rest, Prosperity with quality of life………..All of these have a Divine Source. All can be counterfeited and made to appear acceptable.
Choose carefully and wisely. Only then can we ever have a life that is ABUNDANT.
Jesus said…..I have come that they may have LIFE. ABUNDANTLY. John 10:10b
Thank you, Lord on this new day. A-men.
Contentment in the comforting things in life.
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.
