I loved the image when I first saw it but had a few questions.  Is the colour natural? Has it been digitally,  photographically enhanced?   Is it a mutation? Scientifically produced? 

                The researched answers amazed and inspired me.

         Because of a deep LOVE for the rose, growers desired to, in no way alter the structure,  but knowing that the external beauty is fleeting, ensured the heart of the flower would remain a rose. 

                From the mortal structure of our humanity what can the DIVINE CREATOR bring forth in us if we surrender and pray.  

                  Change my heart O Lord make it more like YOU.   A-men

                  This is not about external beauty like the rose, but internal beauty which draws others to the Saviour.   

                   Then, 1 John 3:2 will  be a continuing process in us. all our lives on this earth.

        ‘Beloved now we are Children of God, and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be but we know that when HE is revealed , we shall be like HIM for we shall see HIM as HE is, 

        Everyone who has this hope in HIM purifies himself just as He is pure.  


  …Create in us ALL clean PURE HEARTS.    A-men.

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.

    A pure prayer indeed, Faye. For if our hearts were more akin to His we would no longer need to contend with darkness…. Hugs to you for this call to prayer.
