Reflections of a castle in Russia.
Last week I saw the image above. I did not take the photograph but acknowledge with gratitude both the unknown photographer and the one who posted it ‘on line’. It touched my heart very deeply and this is the reason for the blog today.
It takes very little to share beauty in our world……only a handful of water and the right light. Imagine how much beauty we can REFLECT from a relationship with a beautiful and creative Holy God.
All it really takes is LOVE. A handful of LOVE, A handful of Kindness, A smile.
Just a thought.
If this one image so transformed my day when I viewed it……..How much difference can we too make if we use our pens, our pictures, our lives, simply to sow handfuls of beauty and hope into a needing world.
Blessings and Peace to all on this mid-week January 2019 journey.
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.

❤️Thanks for the beautiful reflection, Faye. Such a wonderment all the many gifts God wraps up in His love for us – so grateful, at the start of this New Year, to let your words sink in to my heart & appreciate being called one of His own. Water from the side of Christ wash over me…
I love this, image and all.
