Good Morning!


This is a 2017 picture of ‘chips’ the goldfish.    By Christmas 2018 he was even bigger.  He amazed our grandchildren as he was only about 3cm when he first came to our place. A tiny little scrap with a beautiful black fan tail.  Even though he only had 1 eye in the last two years still he seemed to thrive.     Chips died yesterday.

Thank you ‘Chips’ for your contribution to our lives.

‘Only a goldfish’ many would say.   Yes indeed.   In the scheme of things very insignificant when you have known the deaths and loss of close family and friends. Many are facing the illness and possible deaths of others.

Yet!  For each one of us we need to face up to the fact that there will be CHANGE.    In life circumstances and life must continue to change.   The only UNCHANGING certainty in the life of a Christian, is the FACT that our God does not CHANGE.   If Jesus Christ is your Saviour Lord life now, and for eternity has endless possibilities.

Will we get another goldfish?   It is a possibility.   There will never be a replacement for ‘Chips’ but……….like life itself what possibilities still lay ahead.

Winter may be on my head, but eternal Spring is in my heart.  Victor Hugo

   Thanks be to God!

Blessings and Grace to you and those you 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.
