Ash-Free

I often laugh

aloud at
myself

because I wonder
eagerly
at the thought: When I
unraveled, was
the quantity of ash
in my past
fairly equivalent in its
ugliness to the quality of my
loveliness today,

in this blessed
new day when

God has so
obviously called this
day mine and has
surely given me

so much beauty for so many ashes?
itís easy to laugh at me,
good medicine for my
heart -- this contrite heart,
tried, but alas, ash-free
!

Isaiah 61:3-4 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them BEAUTY FOR ASHES, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, THE PLANTING OF THE LORD, THAT HE MIGHT BE GLORIFIED. And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Joyce, I have already commented on this article, but wanted to thank you for the comment you put on my "The Day of the Rain." Yes, I do believe that God held back the sun for you that day. You should write an article about it.

Very artistic, the way you presented this article. And the message is great too. May God continue to bless you. Please see your next article - my comments to know the reason for my "silence" of late.

Oh, yes... those ashes have disappeared in God's sight! Great message and format - love the way you put this together! It is amazing how all that old ash can be turned into beauty when God gets to work in our lives! I think we become even more beautiful BECAUSE we have overcome the pain in our past and allowed God to 'create in us a clean heart and a new spirit within us'! Well done... AGAIN! Love, Peggy

I agree with Peggy as well Treava! You have definitely come forth as Cinderella, ready for her prince to come along and sweep her off of her feet. I love you, Sharon
