Relentless rain had caused massive erosion.. It appeared that the once easily walked path was now destroyed.
For a moment let’s just look at the beauty still remaining. A pocket of green grass and mottled sunlight that showed a way could still be made possible.
I found this prayer on my date pad and it reminded me of this long ago perceived problem
May God give us eyes to always see beauty only the heart understands. A-men
Today, I know steps have been made and this track is now back almost to its original natural perfection.
May God indeed give us eyes to see Beauty in the midst of circumstances that may be troubling us in our present lives. in the name of the BELOVED who brings beauty from ashes. ( The Psalms so often portray this truth clearly).
Travel well! Our living Lord is the God of the impossible!
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.
” Our living Lord is the God of the impossible!” What a wonderful truth!
