Under the pressure of Spring beauty, heavy rain. Storms and high winds, the bougainvillea collapsed.   

          The heart of this beautiful bush can be rescued.  However, it  cannot happen unless it is carefully and lovingly pruned. Then it will need to be held up and supported.  

           This is the theme of Biblical teaching in the Bible.  John Chapter 15 portrays Jesus as the gardener and as the Vine to whom we are grafted. The vine dresser cares for the vineyard.

       Pruning is a necessary part of Christian Life.   

        Let us ALL stand lovingly trusting our Saviour in these troubled

days.    He has promised to NEVER leave us. 

       When He lovingly allows pruning to occur let us keep looking heavenwards and KNOW what is cut away even the beautiful as well as the heavy load of life – HE ALONE is in our HEART and must remain as our greatest love now and for eternity.  

         Have a blessed day with HIM today.    

             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.

    Is this a bush from the fruits of your own green thumb? I know the great gardener above will guide you in its pruning, as you lovingly revive its heartbeat to be once again healthy and strong! Hugs to you for the wonderful comparison for our own weary, weather-trod hearts!
