Family, Faith, Forgiveness. LOVE

Alison’s Legacy resounded through her Memorial Service.

Heaven Stirs.

Our daughter planned her own Memorial Service, She chose her own scriptures, and music. Her father was asked to read Psalm 23. The music was contemporary but with powerful messages through the words. I will run to You. Oceans. Ashes. is there beauty in Ashes? Absolutely!

The Pastor in his address tied it all powerfully together.

Alison had written her own EULOGY and asked a carer to read it. Thankfulness for her life. The expression of the POWER of LOVE to those who loved her and forgiveness and Love to cover ALL human frailties etc but an assurance to all her contempories of her personal faith in the ONE who came.

I believe in Alison’s Service we all came away challenged. We will continue to pray for our loved ones and ask Him to continue His ongoing Changes in us, May Confession and Forgiveness always be our discipline as we continue our grieving process.

Beauty and Holiness out of her Ashes.

He gave breath….He took her breath away.

Thanks be to God.

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.
