Beauty Scars – a story about grief

Anastasia Korkodyllos’ story ‘Beauty Scars’ was recently published in Bones and Blue Eyes and other stories of life. It is about her precious mum and the grief Anastasia journeyed through after her mum’s passing. Today, she shares a precious photograph and some personal reflections with us.
The photo is of my mum and my youngest son, in my mum’s last week’s before God took her home.
Having my story ‘Beauty Scars’ published has meant so much to me as it’s been such a beautiful opportunity to get to share a little part of my personal experience as an example of just how much God truly cares about ALL the details in our lives and how great is his pursuit of us. I never thought I’d ever get to share this in this way, ever. Just makes me realise that anything is possible thru God. I look forward to sharing more and writing more. It’s God’s gift that he’s given me to share with the world, to reach hearts that may have given up on him and to give others a reason to hope again.
To read Anastasia’s story and other stories of life and faith, get a copy of Bones and Blue Eyes from our online bookstore today.
Bones and Blue Eyes is the seventh anthology in the Stories of Life series, true stories of ordinary people experiencing a connection with the divine in the context of their ‘ordinary’ lives. They are electricians, accountants, butchers, mothers, preachers, children; people grieving, people rejoicing, people helping and being helped. In each story we see individuals believing, however shakily, in a God who cares and comes to them. The writers are honest about pain, doubt, poor choices, unjust circumstances, fear… This is not a collection of neat stories, perfect doctrine, and pasted smiles. On the contrary, many are unfinished stories of people who simply acknowledge that, along their way, the God of love meets them.
