An Image only but an expression of beauty and life
Thank You that on this 2nd Sunday of Advent as we journey onwards towards the remembrance of Christ’s Birthday, we express gratitude for the Gift of Peace which came with this Birth. Not PEACE as worldly thinking understands, but ‘inner’ PEACE even in the worst of human suffering.
This PEACE is beyond all-natural understanding. Christ HIMSELF is The Prince of PEACE. Only in a relationship with HIM can this Gift ever be fully opened and experienced.
Thank You for the remembrance of the Saviour’s Birth and this Gift of PEACE.
Hope and Peace candles are now lit. Twin lights now can pierce the ache in the darkness of human longings.
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.
