Carpark Argument

The argument was heated, and the two men were becoming increasingly more agitated.  

           It was unusual because it was the Church’s private carpark and the two irate men had just left the church where they had heard a passionate sermon preached on the power of LOVE and the restorative healing of forgiveness.

         A young child’s voice unexpectedly cried out, ‘Daddy is it time yet to say sorry and give Mr Brown a cuddle?’   

    All of us fall short of the Glory of God and the triggers can be as simple as someone’s bumper bar blocking our exit.    ALL issues whether major or minor happen at any time.   

    It is often when we are feeling good, even happy, the carnality of this fallen world disrupts our peace.   

 Thank God our Saviour KNOWS our every weakness.   He knows how quickly we can fall BUT…….His Promise holds True…

       The steadfast Love of the Lord never ceases, His Mercy never comes to an end. Lams  3:22.  

         Under the New Covenant, His Sacrificial death ensures His Forgiveness after Repentance.  

              Amazing Grace is our portion in this life despite all our failures.    

                 ETERNAL LOVE (better than a cuddle} IS OURS .

    We are able then to WALK ONWARDS      

    Our choice is to walk IN THE LIGHT.    


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.
