An Almost OCTOGENARIAN gives thanks.

Thank you to all my friends and family who blessed me with messages and love on my

birthday yesterday. Thank YOU!

Thank God for His Presence and ongoing Strength on THE WAY ahead.

The image of the little girl reminds us all that once we were young but all of us will age if we are granted the privilege of walking onwards. However, changes is us while visible externally, will be accompanied by internal spiritual changes.


If we make the CHOICE to accept the WAY of following the only ONE who came to be the blood-soaked bridge to eternity. (Spiritually) Then, His Presence accompanies us.


THE WORD from Genesis to REVELATIONS must also be seen as the Handbook for LIFE IN ALL ITS FULLNESS.

Love, Repentance, Forgiveness and GRAC E all along the WAY.


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.

    The BIGGEST hug is sent to the BIRTHDAY GIRL from me! Thank you Faye for sharing your beautiful heart with us, which has only grown larger through the grace of aging. Oh, that I may dispense the Love of the Lord as much as you as I age toward the finish line of this time on earth. Blessings upon you as the heart-warming, Spirit filled woman of God example you are to so many! HAPPY BIRTH-DAY!!!

    “The years of our life are seventy,
    or even by reason of strength eighty;
    yet their span is but toil and trouble;
    they are soon gone, and we fly away.” Psalm 90:10
    My Dad said, two weeks before he went Home to be with the Lord, anything psat 70 are “years of grace.” As we talked about the years he had walked with the Lord, we agreed EVERY YEAR was a year of God’s grace!
    ❤️&🙏, c.a.
