An Enriching Moment


Hampton Court Palace England.    Tourists with cameras everywhere.     All eyes are focussed on the beautiful palace stonework when I looked towards the nearby waterway.

       I saw the white swan swim past.   I moved closer and took this simple picture.  

        I heard in my heart and spirit the words ‘Be still and KNOW that I am God!’ PSM.46v10

        I continued that day enjoying all the fascinating historical touristy adventures.

        However, for me something remained deeply entrenched in my heart.  

       One day I collected all the meditations and prayers from the Word of God concerning PEACE I had written, and this became a book.    It was meant to be a tool of comfort and I thank God that I was able to place some copies in a few places of need – an emergency waiting room. and in a breast-cancer radiation unit.    

         The cover touched and brought comfort simply ‘seeing PEACE’ 

          ONLY GOD!

           Father, I worship you this day for your amazing PEACE. 


           Thank you.     A-men.  

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.

    Such a beautiful symbol of calmness! Truly, if we have the peace inside, we can deal with grace any circumstances outside.
