Sometimes only the rays of morning sunshine gradually illuminating the trees.
I have seen kangaroos, a goanna and birds who flew in for an early morning visit.
I smile when I see each morning, the pink bath still standing at the right of the image.
This bath once held a proud garden of ripening strawberries.
We did not see the large frilly lizard who took all our ripened strawberries but we did see him later in the day outside a large rock enclosed entrance to ? his burrow, with a large one in his mouth and juice trickling down his prickly chin.
Lots of folks have more interesting views from their breakfast table….maybe of the ocean or a swimming pool.
Many folks have more money, resources etc than we have, Our life is simple. but’……………
The greatest serenity in life comes when we are grateful for what we have.
Ephesians 4;12 I have learned in whatever state I am therewith to be content.
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.
“The greatest serenity in life comes when we are grateful for what we have.” Yessss!! Great post, Faye!
