I pay tribute this morning to two Christian Nigerian women. One known to me personally and one I read about.
Precious is an Emergency Theatre nurse I met at the time I had throat surgery and she attended a code Blue alert. I will forever be grateful for her professional expertise, but also her Christian ability to ‘connect’ and care. I left that hospital with gratitude and thankfulness to God not only for His Peace and Presence but also for a nurse called Precious. WHO she carried inside was more valuable than her own name or her nursing professionalism. Thank you Precious.
Brilliant is a primary grade teacher who encourages and blesses children under difficult circumstances. Not only does she dress in bright and colourful colours and teach her students with passion but she lives up to her name. Brilliant is her Christ Light from within and Brilliant is her attitude to the whole of life.
Thank you to two wonderful women of God.
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful. We must carry it with us or we find it not. Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Christ in us. God’s Precious and Brilliant Gift to all who believe. Share this with the world by BEING HIS in every part of our lives
LIVE TRIUMPHANTLY and well.
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.
