Traditional……yes……..Prayerful Yes. ………POINTERS TO redemption/eternity absolutely!
PEACE AND HOPE…….TWINS
Hope for eternity is found only through accepting Christ. Following HIM. Opening fully the Gift of God celebrating His Birth. His death sacrifice, and ETERNITY with Him.
Today as a freewill choice I will light the PEACE candle. Jesus CHRIST IS THE PRINCE OF PEACE.
Now I pray.
They stand side by side HOPE and PEACE twin lights to pierce the darkness.
Father I ask in the Name of Jesus our Saviour LORD that all the souls who search in society’s darkness for material answers will find amid Christmas’s glitz and glamour the twin Lights of Hope and Peace to draw them ever to THE LIGHT we celebrate as to come at His Birth
HIS LIGHT, HIMSELF is the Only ONE that will never be extinguished.
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.
Have a blessed Sunday with Jesus’ peace.
peace TO YOU Dear ONETA
