Well i was in the woods when this just came to me. It's really describing what i felt at time and my thoughts. I hope people understand what i was trying to convey, and enjoy it.

To watch the budding rose blossom brings me joy, brings me peace, shows me love. To watch the leaves sway ever so slightly in the wind amidst the hundreds of acres of lust green pastures makes me once again realise why I spend my days sitting at the lake, just thinking, just feeling, just being. To watch the sun glow so boldly, and to see the glistening speckles of light reflect on the water, makes me thank my God once again for the beauty of his masterpiece. A beautiful, flawless, inspirational masterpiece.

But, as Jane stretched out on the riverbank she thought that this may one day be swept away from her or her away from the beauty, how frail and delicate life truly is. It was so easy for her to spill her heart out onto a page which is why she spent continuous hours writing, maybe one day writing to the world. Maybe one day expressing her ideas and thoughts to others to help guide through her own experience. Oh, she had too many ideas whirling around in her head, too many ambitions, and how to fulfil all of them on such a short time span? You see, the riverbank was the one place Jane did all her thinking and writing. It was so much easier to relax here than the hustle and bustle of real life and responsibilities, to lay there and listen to the trickle of the water running along the stream, and as the amazing preacher Stef Liston once said “Sit there and get thoroughly soaked in the word. We have to marinate in the word.” So easy to say, but sometimes so hard to do. But when you read the word the warmth you feel from the inside out is a feeling you never want to end. You feel protected and loved by God; and that, my friends, is a treasure keeping.

Though through your life there will be periods when you feel alone, deserted, but you must listen to this. You are never alone. Sometimes we need to say that aloud to ourselves, We are never alone, we have the one true Lord as our father, how can we ever been alone? N
o-matter how many times we may have been hurt or hurt others we are beautiful in God's eyes. Please remember that my friends.

This was really well written. The way I think of life: if you always have your friends, no matter how sad you feel, you'll never be totally alone. I liked the fluency of this piece, and reading it, it makes you think. I like the images you create with Jane sitting by the lake, writing her novels, feeling peaceful and tranquil. This is really enjoyable and thought-provoking. Great work

Mistress of Word Play

A very deep and moving piece. I am so glad you invited me to read this story. It came from the heart, the best kind of write comes from there. I have myself sat for hours in the sun and read the Word. He is the one that loves me more than those around me here can. You are so right by stating this the way you did. Beautiful in every, shape, form, or manner. This was a blessing for me and I hope others will see it as such.
Bless you and the work you do in His name. Susan :)

Thank you very much. I most defiantly agree, the best writing comes of the heart.
It's really nice to hear somewhere encourage you to keep standing for what you believe in, and I do hope that others who read it will see it as a blessing too.
God Bless

Very beautiful and well put. I couldn't have said it better myself. Keep writing what you feel and see. You are writing to the world now.

Life is a very fragile thing, but it is good to know that God is there no matter how we feel about things at the time.

Keep writing...

That's such a mind-blowing thing to think, that anything I write on here I an writing to the world. That's amazing, and I agree it does me the world of good to know that God is there through all of my emotions.
Thank you so much for commenting, it is much appreciated :)
