A Moment – unexpected

Good Morning!

    A Thought to ponder.

A friend pops in the picture.

I was carefully positioning my camera to take a ‘closeup’ of the opened lily in the bouquet of flowers I was given for Mother’s Day.   The whole bouquet is beautiful but this one lily was my focus.    Imagine my surprise when I viewed it and saw the little face of a small china bear from on the shelf.    It was as if what I had overlooked in my focus had suddenly popped up and said ‘Hi!’.

My date pad today has the comment. ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS.  ONE DAY YOU MAY LOOK BACK AND REALIZE.   THEY WERE THE BIG THINGS.

I was touched by this and then stirred profoundly by my bible reading:

2 Cor. 5:17    For our light affliction which is but for a moment is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.

Be surprised, encouraged this day.   Enjoy the little things and hold fast always to what is precious, eternally significant and LIVE ABUNDANTLY.     God’s richest Blessings!

 

 

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.
