For Surprises, Beauty and Life – THANK YOU

The potted hyacinth flowered brilliantly and unexpectedly during the Christmas week. I had seen no buds or sign of intended flowering. It was huge, golden with a stunning centre. I intended taking a photo but was too busy.

Sadly by the following morning it was gone.

Extreme summer heat and high humidity effected us all and even this flower when the night descended folded up its petals and went to sleep. It’s life was only one brief day but I thank God for its beauty and life.

Two days ago I photographed this again unexpectedly flowering pot plant,. It too is beautiful but a paler more resilient and less dramatic representation of beauty and life.

For ALL life and BEAUTY and for eyes to see it on this mid-week morning we give . thanks

Emmanuel -God Who journeys with us through our lives whose Time is in Your Hands.


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.
