Morning at Wineglass Bay, Tasmania.
Today is part of a collection of days compiling my life. There are memories and future hopes. Today on its own is a special day.
Mark Twain wrote
‘There have been only two really significant days in my life. One was the day I was born. The second was when I discovered why I was here.’
In Joshua 24 v 15 ‘Choose this day whom you will serve.’ Jesus said FOLLOW ME!.
On the calendar on this 26th January, it is celebrated as Australia Day.
Happy Australia Day to all.
This day is special on a personal level because it is a day of unmarked time to live.
If you are a believer ask yourself the simple question. Is my heart and life RIGHT before
What if this is my last day on earth? Am I sure where my spirit will spend eternity? or
what if this day is the beginning of something NEW?
What if it’s just another day?
It really doesn’t matter. The important thought for today is that it is another new day of LIFE.
REJOICE IN IT!
IT IS SPECIAL
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.
