Today I light a candle of thanksgiving for the CHRISTMAS GIFT of LOVE
FOUR LIGHTS now stand shoulder to shoulder reminding us of the Gifts of Christmas HOPE, PEACE, JOY. LOVE.
These gifts have been in our world from the beginning and highlighted every Christmas in the remembrance of the birth of the Christ-Child
ALL of these gifts are no more than fairy lights when Christmas Lights and happy celebrations are again packed away to be brought out at another time.
However those who prayerfully wait to welcome Jesus Christ in the fullness of Who He is and accept His HOLY GIFT of DIVINE LOVE, will open it and let its light ignite and maintain ALL the other lights of the Spirit.
Then all the Promises in the Word of God are now for them. IN HIM. He becomes Anchor, fortress and swamping HOPE in and through All of life’s circumstances.
The purpose of His Coming was and is to be Saviour of the World for every tribe tongue and nation.
All who will accept HIM and believe
May you enjoy whatever you prayerfully plan, to welcome this Season of Remembrance, Beauty in LIGHTS, COLOUR and love with JOY but let us always , radiate by our lives HIS LIGHT in us that will not be extinguished as we follow Him into eternity.
TODAY I THANK GOD for love and wait for it to be perfected only by HIS radiance.
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.
