When I  was young to live life like this would have seemed impossible.

 I Desired to skip, dance, and generally move at a speed a little slower than a rocket ship. Life was for living to the maximum.

                             I am thankful for the loving disciplines my parents instilled that we have a need in life to be BALANCED in all things, Our external physical and our internal regarding food  rest, time for homework and a space for reading, prayer or  quietness of mind and spirit,  was vital. 

         Now I am older this truth resonates with a new importance.

Following my Saviour one step and one day at a time is my lifestyle because of physical limitations.

         BUT, I would say even to younger folk one step, one day at a time following HIM  Is a vital discipline.   THIS PRECIOUS DAY is ours for the living.   Let’s value it in EVERY . WAY Surrender tomorrow into His Keeping.

         Look for BEAUTY and fulfillment in this day.  

I could not work out how to save a UTUBE video but I Invite anyone interested in joining me as I sit and listen to Cause Me to Come to Your River O GOD.      Let the HOLY spirit refresh and minister to your soul.  

           One day at a time on u-tube can be easily found. A Beautiful version by the Tally Family and 92 year old GOSPEL singing mother.


MAY THIS BE A RICH DAY WITH FAMILY as you travel onward

Cause me to come to your River O GOD. Cause me to drink from your River O GOD. Cause me to come, Cause me to COME, CAUSE ME to DRINK….Cause me TO LIVE.

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.
