sea waves crashing on shore

The Battle is over!

The palm frond journey and royal carpet of leaves leads ultimately to the sacrifice.

The Lamb of God (God’s own Son, part of Divine Trinity) has ‘freely’ given His human Life for a suffering, sin-sick, world.

At the end of all the agony and suffering sorrows.  ‘ IT IS FINISHED. ‘   He cried from the Cross.

No more is necessary from frail humanity.   He has done it!

Pardon and FORGIVENESS of SINS for all humankind (made in God’s Image).

No one has to DO anything else to be forgiven of their sins. SIMPLY ACCEPT THE SACRIFICE.


Accept this Act of LOVE , Follow Him and because of that LOVE our lives will be totally different.


But we cannot remain at the foot of the Cross.     We need to return there all the days of our lives.  His redemptive Blood was poured out.            We must return to accept ongoing forgiveness because all our lives we remain with a sin nature.

We must not remain there or try to live there or the palm frond journey cannot continue.

A needing world plagued by sickness and death cannot remain at the Cross and neither can we.


But there is much more!!


REDEMPTIVE LOVE does not stay at the foot of the blood-soaked cross.




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.

    I love the analogy of “the palm frond journey.” And your reminder of how we must pass through this to reach the foot of the cross. Hugs to you dear friend for the wonderful opportunity to ponder on this throughout these 50 days of Easter.
