“My lover spoke and said to me, ‘Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me. See! The winter is past, the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth, the season of singing has come….Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.’ ” ~Song of Songs 2:10-12,13b
“Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” ~Psalm 30:5b ESV
No matter what we go through, it will eventually get better. Around the dark clouds, behind them somewhere, lies the sun in all its brilliance and warmth. Underneath the cold ground of winter lie the buds and blooms of spring just waiting to break forth. Waiting, praying, hoping. Never giving up listening to the Voice of love. Blessings, Lisa
Sometimes the way is foggy and it is difficult to see where your feet are headed. Stones cause ankles to turn and progress is limited as you slip slightly backwards on the scree. But finally, you are there. At the top. The view is misty and slightly hazy, but you see it…the lake, the green in the distance, the view of the amazing mountains. You are thankful, you are satisfied, and no amount of mist will stop that from happening.
No matter what mountain you are climbing today and tomorrow, walk on. You may slip some, but you will make it. And the One who made you will bless you and keep you all along the journey. Who knows what wonders you will discover at the top? Be blessed; I am truly thankful for each of you. Lisa
