Faith – this candle joins Hope, Peace and Joy


Yesterday a severe tropical storm ripped through many areas around where I live.  There were gale force winds and lots of fury and unrest. Many families have had holiday plans and ordinary life ‘disrupted’.

We did not go to visit our daughter and grandchildren as planned.  We may be able to make a short visit today.

After six hours of  no power when the sun came up this morning it had such a promise of a NEW DAY that I rejoiced when I remembered many churches and private acts of worship would today light the FAITH CANDLE.

I thought I would simply blog that I would do likewise and unite Hope, Peace, Joy and Faith as we wait for THE LIGHT…….. remembrance of Christmas Day.

However, the image I found seemed to express better in this day the heart affinity I would like to share with everyone that indeed the ‘crying in the wilderness;’ is in many believers, as we long for His Presence in our lives this day, and the reminder of His first Advent and the Promise of His second.

Let FAITH ARISE.  Blessings and Love!

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.

    I read this first this morning…before getting out of bed. It was so calming and helped to anchor me. Thank you Faye. I am glad you are safe. ❤️
