Good Morning!

TWO LIT CANDLES               Today Sunday, I will light the second candle in this journey of remembrance leading to Christmas.

Today, I light the  PEACE candle  which for a brief period will stand beside HOPE.

I know this is a tradition BUT powerful  in our hearts.    I pray it will sow a seed in yours as well.   These are part of the reminder to heart and spirit during Advent that in the middle  of  all the ‘preparations for Christmas’, we need to STOP and really think whose BIRTHDAY we are remembering.

There is no peace in this broken world.  Jesus is THE PRINCE OF PEACE and in Him Alone is the Peace which passes all understanding and which will last into eternity for those who follow HIM.   He said

  ‘My peace I give unto you. My peace I leave with you.’ John 14:27

HOPE and PEACE the twins the SAVIOUR came to earth to bring.

Today,  I give thanks and my prayer is that His Presence will be with all of you who also STOP and REMEMBER.




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.
