CONSTANCY

A remembered prose/poem written by me long ago. It’s Truth resounded again today

                   In winter wind and summer sun,

                   In stormy seas and millpond calm,

                   Through bleakest hours and days of joy.

                    Only HE remains the same.

                    Friends forsake and mountains tumble,

                    Even the mighty fall from fame.

                    But the Lord in ever constant sameness

                    Is the one true comfort that will remain.

                   He said ‘I will not forsake you’

                   By His words is our true test of faith.

                    His constancy is unchangeable.

                    More steadfast than the castles humankind can make

                     Oh Father make me ever able,

                      to more clearly see,

                      That the blessing of Your constancy

                                          Is a priceless gift to me.

                                          THANK YOU!

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.

      In our Australia, from burning bushland to present flooding records, constancy of pure words promises like pure water, cover and comfort, confirming unchangeable keeping by His Power for His Purpose. Priceless!
