Information overload is the problem of our 2020 world.
The media happily processes each day, each minute, a constant barrage of information, news. Phones, computers all churn out ‘stuff’. We must CHOOSE for our own personal wellbeing what we NEED TO KNOW – (for the health of our whole person). Anything ‘extra’ keeps us informed but does not need to be taken ‘internally, but must be RELEASED PRAYERFULLY only if the subject is important.
As Christians there is only ONE thing vital we absolutely NEED TO KNOW. We need to KNOW our God. Really know Him. Know the fullness of our relationship with Him. Christ has made the Way for us who are saved and ‘born again’ to have intimate relationship with God on High as our ‘Abba’ Father.
One thing I will ask of the Lord, this is what I seek. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of Him and seek after Him in His Holy Place. Psm 27:4
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.

I have committed to only watching/reading one hour of News a day during our Lenten Season. And I already feel refreshed…..
That sounds like a plan. So much of our news here is exaggerated, often only 20% true and often skewed. We here should choose, Information only and then quiet, prayer and listening to own choices of music. (A great Season if taken for reflection) peace!
