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.
Lovely memorial. Blessings to you, dear Faye.
May our Father God be ever near you both, hearing your prayers and bringing peace to your hearts. Let Him guide you by His side through His Word each day, Amen 🙏
I am assuming the beautiful Alison was your daughter. It is perhaps the most difficult of losses for a parent to lose a child, certainly much more than the other way around; and at such a young age.
My sister-in-law went Home at 45 years old, after only five years of marriage to a wonderful brother in Christ. It was very hard to understand, but our mutual Blessed Hope is that we will all be united around our Master’s throne one day.
❤️& 🙏, c.a.
Faye, Alison was such a beautiful young woman.
May God continue to give you peace and comfort, my dear friend.
A beautiful memorial, Faye. Thank you for sharing the light of her life with all of us. 💕
