I am aware many folk do not wake up each morning to a fresh page of life. News constantly brings stories of fires, floods, hurricanes, trouble and strife. To those dear ones thoughts and prayers will be a part of my life today.

My thought today, as a prayer is this. May we live THIS day as an independent portion of the abundant life we find if live with, and for Christ.
Before we go to bed lets give thanks for its passing and file it away in its own special place. Perhaps every file will have in it before it is closed, something beautiful. something valuable. Maybe re connection with a friend. Maybe forgiveness of an old hurt. Maybe conversations that go higher than the level of our life but soar beyond to the clouds.
This day does have POTENTIAL still untapped.
LIVE! LOVE! REJOICE!
For all the folks who observe ASH WEDNESDAY on their Christian Pilgrimage as the beginning of Lent, be encouraged and strengthened on your journey.
PRAYERS and LOVE!
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.
