This update is a record of ongoing writing. I am progressing. On on the way I am experiencing again the pain and the GOD Shafts of revelation. Many times I could write down but never express fully to others. It was and is supernatural and prayerful.
Once my life reached this decade of the beginning of a new century spiritually I was confident of what was of God and simply prayed it through as He led. The Vision before the tragic events of 9/11 were hard to write. I can simply express with a fullness of heart what is my truth and journey on.
I have reached now the tsunami of 2004 and my prayer and the revelation in the midst of suffering back then confirmed to me just how AWESOME HE is. The vibrating cross on the back wall of a small country church shook up my life. I have written it down and now and I have finished Chapter 18. This memoir of a now old lady is certainly my thanksgiving tribute to a GOD I eventually came to know as my Saviour and LORD but WHO is so much bigger than I could have ever imagined.
Much still to be written. I’m asking for HIS STRENGTH and GUIDANCE. a-men.
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.
