Can you see the baby?

When we saw the koala with her baby, David stopped the car and got out and carefully approached with his camera-phone.

With the nurturing care of a protective mother the animal seemed to re-position her body between the two gum trees so her baby was hidden by the bulk of her body.

This was perhaps not the beautiful image we had hoped but in its own way it speaks a message.

ALL young people need nurturing love to help keep them safe from possible perils in life. That should be the role of parents and other nurturers…… teachers etc

As children of God, the Heavenly Father has this same nurturing LOVE DIVINE for His redeemed FAMILY.

Why then do we wonder at the unravelling of society when God’s Influence and written WORD is exchanged for something less than GOD’s NURTURING LOVE.?

Surrender, Accept and KNOW that once you have accepted what Jesus did for you at the CROSS,,,,,,,,,,,

Following Him in the WAY is, His Plan for totality of life in the NURTURING LOVE of GOD.

It brings greater freedom and LIFE than any of society’s alternatives.


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.
