On Australian country roads the dangers posed by our non-aggressive wildlife are immense.  Kangaroos have no traffic sense. 

    If one decides to cross the road or out of curiosity wanders too close to traffic the outcome for both animal and motorist can be very sad. 

 Caution, Respect and Love help us in rural areas to live in comfortable harmony.

    In all aspects of our daily lives, we too need to be alert for unexpected dangers but also to never stop looking  for Beauty and Hope.     

        Jesus has promised us fullness of life and as His beloved redeemed Children, Peace, LOVE and transformed lives. These in HIM are ours. .

           May we too live in harmony with all around us, within the framework of the safety Guidelines of His HOLY WORD through all our age changes and circumstances. 


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.

    Faye, I loved your reminder today, “In all aspects of our daily lives, we too need to be alert for unexpected dangers but also to never stop looking for Beauty and Hope.” Hugs to you for ALL the beauty and hope you bring through your words. The world (especially of late) seems so FULL of danger, yet the Light does continue to radiate the beauty & hope you bring to mind.
