A response inspired by a desk top calendar comment

Let;s go sailing!

The comment is.

    I find the great thing in this world Is not so much where we stand, as to the direction we are moving.. To reach the Port of Heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it but we must sail, and not drift, nor  lie at anchor.   


   I researched and found a lot of information about this author/statesman, judge, politician. poet and Harvard Don but I did not find a legacy of Christian writing.     I pray he indeed sailed at his life’s end into Heaven’s Port but he never wrote about  it with any certainty. 

      I today look at the image of the small rowboat and this is my personal statement. 

       As the airwaves are swamped today with the problems and discord in this broken 2023 world I walk towards the little boat. 

I find  the greatest  thing is not where we stand but on Whom we are standing THE WORD and the direction we are going is to FOLLOW THE SAVIOUR.      

         If He is in the boat with me I KNOW Heaven is my destination.

       I am trusting that the Wind of the HOLY  Spirit will blow me ever forwards and onwards but even when the storms and rolling sea are battering my craft I know I have an ANCHOR that will HOLD, 

        Precious Saviour every day we need You.



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.
