This nursery rhyme has been beloved for generations. It evoked in me, memories of gazing up at a star-studded night sky as a little girl. I waited for one to fall so I could make a WISH. The story is that if you wish upon a falling star the wish will come true.
I still love to look at the star-studded heavens.
NOW, my thoughts and my prayers rise with HOPE higher than the heavens themselves.
HOPE anchored to the Divine Saviour can take our souls beyond the wishes and desires of our childhood into that place of endless possibility which is a glimpse of eternity and the wonder of ‘expectancy’ of what our Christ-life can still bring us.
Rev. 22:16.I Jesus have sent my angel to testify to these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David. I am the Bright Morning Star.
Look up and see the stars this week and remember you are LOVED.
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.
