Joy of, and for, LIFE dispels SHADOWS

Good Morning!

An update on Char-lee and a Thought to Ponder

28 Time for my morning walk, 20 May 2019 - Copy

  Last night I was encouraged and inspired by a young woman who spoke in an interview  about Life struggling with M.S. 

She smiled into the camera and said ‘I have no idea of how bad the symptoms will become as I get older but I am very content with the NOW.  ‘   She is only in her 30’s yet lives in a ‘retirement home’.   I am cared for.   Each day is a DAY OF LIFE.  Her attitude spoke to my heart of the JOY OF LIFE.   Rejoicing in the absolute JOY OF LIFE itself.

This is in essence the story of Char-lee,  although the situation is not life determining like the story of human MS .above.

The little terrier had but a glitche – We have all witnessed dramatic improvements in the past few days.   The vet. the nurses and anyone who has been connected with her have said the same.

She has the absolute JOY OF LIFE in every fibre of her being.

The blood test showed traces of meningitis, bacterial not hereditary.  and her very excitable personality caused a lot of her shaking.   It was a worrying few days but gradually we are seeing  a return to normal which is  frenetic but full of JOY OF LIFE.

We will try to keep her well exercised and also provide many times of closeness and love.  Gradually we believe she will be off all medication.

There is an important lesson to all who are reading.   Each day LIFE and Joy but time of stillness, prayer and love.   This  is an important lesson for each one.

We continue to thank God for all His undergirding Grace and covering in ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.

Peace and Love to you on this journey of LIFE. !

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.
