Psalm 102:9 For He satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with goodness.
Have you ever looked upwards and known a longing that is often so profound it is like a longing for the world beyond this one. A longing as like an alien for HOME.?
I’m glad that the Psalms portray many aspects of this longing. I believe that if we continue to focus upwards instead of absorbing this world’s beguiling influences and determine to LOVE we will have many times when beauty of life overwhelms our senses.
LOVE the Lord your God with all your heart soul mind and spirit and love your neighbour as you love yourself. Powerful ways to know LOVE and beauty in this life.
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.
Thank you Faye. Blessings in abundance to you this day and always.
As it was in the beginning…is now…and every shall be. 🥰🌞🥰
