A gentle SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
JOLTED REMINDER OF EVERLASTING HOPE
I wonder if you, like me, are sometimes acutely aware of the trials and suffering in the tragedies of this world around us so that ‘faith’ and ‘hope’ can become blurred by the almost cloying fog of needs. (bushfires and accidents and heartache).
Prayers and sharing in the grief is a privilege, but even the Cross can be obscured and what it really means can be dimmed by simply LIVING our lives and daily needs.
We drove up our hill yesterday and WOW!

Suddenly, in the sunshine, like a springtime JOLT of remembrance the blood-red reminder of ULTIMATE REDEMPTION was in my line of vision.
Jesus cry from the Cross resounded afresh in my thinking. ‘ It is finished!
JESUS IS LORD!
HOPE TRIUMPHANT SOARS, ONCE AGAIN.
Blessings! Peace! and Love to you.
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.
