Today, I will like a PRAYER, light a candle to acknowledge the INNER J O Y

we celebrate which came with the birth so long age of a BABY BOY.

Now Hope, Peace and JOY stand like soldiers shining in the darkness.

I thank God that although this HOLY JOY GIFT is often seen as happiness in a society that longs for ‘better’ in life………..

.sometimes JOY is ignited and miracles of Grace occur.

This past week in three widely separated incidents, we have seen folks smile and dance with joy.

People set out to collect toys and gifts ( many have struggled to pay off as lay-bys. Some still with only another small monetary addition.)

When they arrived, stunned staff greeted them with wrapped parcels and the news that ALL their debts had been PAID IN FULL.

Three different unknown people in three different places had spent thousands of dollars in on line transactions

ALL toys gifts etc now travelled homewards. There were scenes of disbelief on the faces of staff and shoppers and all the talk was about SECRET SANTAS,

JOY (Happiness) exploded across our Media.

This morning as I give thanks for the miraculous Kindness of others, I light the JOY candle and pray.

This candle is a symbol of your coming as DIVINE LOVE into a broken world. I pray

Heavenly Father,

May your Holy SPIRIT I G N I T E this JOY CANDLE and beam its light over a needing world. Touch us all with the celebration of why this HOLY child came.

Inspire us to SHARE JOY – The Holy GIFT wherever we go.

In Jesus’ Name



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.
