The Tapestry of Our Lives

 

Good Morning!

                 Every day and every week and season of our lives as individuals will contribute to the tapestry of our LIFE.

118a - Copy

The tapestry on the wall of a small church on the island of Sark in the English Channel is an eternal reminder of the lives of generations of people.   They survived plagues, invasion by foreign countries, pirates came and plundered and took away wives and children.   There was much sorrow through the generations (including two world wars from which most  of their young men never returned),  yet there is a note across the entrance of the church which stands on a clifftop today.   The sign simply says.

 THROUGH IT ALL JESUS CHRIST IS STILL LORD!

         Today my thoughts returned to this place and in my own life I was challenged again to make this day a meaningful contribution in my own life’s tapestry.    Maybe it will be a prayer, maybe it will be picture or a time of reflective silence but my encouragement to all of us is that it will  only be a fragment of the whole tapestry of the full potential of what our lives can yet be.

And, yes!   For those of us who KNOW the Saviour.   Jesus Christ is STILL Lord!

a-men.

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.
