The cliche about a burst bubble was first coined by a rally car driver,

He was turned back at the starting line because of a safety numbers cut-off.

Sadly, he stated, ‘I arrived standing on a bubble of Hope that today I would be a winner. You have burst my bubble!

Have you ever felt like this?

I know I have. Those occasions when you are prepared and excited about sharing something? Forgotten or not asked? Maybe longing to be chosen for a position or part in a play? Many times when maybe feeling totally flat after soaring high with Hope. Thank GOD. This life we live is not All about us and our feelings.

Our HOPE is higher than any bubble can soar and if our feet are STANDING firmly on the ROCK of solid ground. JESUS CHRIST,,,,,, our spirits are free, with our Eternal HOPE, to soar into heavenly realms. (on the wings of an eagle).

A prayer of GRATITUDE today for our Saviour and who we are IN HIM.




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.

    Another wonderful post, Faye! Hugs to you for the reminder that “…our Spirits are free.” Sometimes the world can over-whelm us with a multitude of emotions and just like the little bird with the thread we are weighed down, unable to fly. But as you mentioned… our Spirits are free to soar and it is the Heavenly Realm we are striving to reach!!
