It had been a gloomy overcast day.
Heavy clouds totally obscured the sun.
I realized as I walked down the forestry road ,that night was fast
I looked up,
The sun as it sank in the western sky, suddenly burst out
with a blazing slash of light.
It did not last long, but the dying day briefly flooded the paddock with light.
Rays touched the trees and it looked like an ocean, shrouded in mist. The picture above only captured a brief moment.
These are the thoughts which came to mind.
- Even at the close of life a light can blaze.
ALL HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF THE RISEN LORD.
Jesus said. I am the Light of the world those who follow Me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the Light of Life. John 8; V12
Keep looking up dear Ones.
Each in your own way. KEEP THE CHRIST LIGHT SHINING……IN and THROUGH You.
His Life is abundant!
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.
