A Brighter Perspective/ The Mountains Majesty

Good morning to you all.  What a difference a few days can make in ones life.  None of the problems are gone, but with your support and encouragement, and God's love, I'm doing much better:)

I'm visiting with my son, daughter in law, and gson on the east side of the mountains, but very close to them. (the mountains)  The house they live in looks to the west and directly to the mountains.  I have been watching them since Saturday evening.  I think I can understand now the draw people have to living near mountains.  They are constantly changing.  At times, I can see the peaks, and at other times, very little if any of them is visible.  There are three of them close together (the Three Sisters).  They are not nearly as high as many of the mountains we have, but they are beautiful to see.  They are covered with snow as we have had much more than normal this year.  The light hits them and they sparkle and shine.  Each time I look, there is something much different to see.  Sometimes the light shines on the trees below and it looks as though they are a hundred different colors.  The definitions of the mountains and the area below changes minute by minute. 

I see God's hands working.  The ever changing mountains are like life.  The snow falls, the fires burn, the rains come, the wind blows, the sun shines, and all the while, the mountains stand tall.  Sometimes, the hurt or damage is too great and the mountain shudders with pain and revolt, but still stands.  I'm like that too.  Some days, the pain, fatigue, and fears are too great, and I tremble and shake and maybe even fall.  But God holds me close and lifts me back up.  He supports me and helps me and eases my burdens.

I was having a terrible day when I posted last.  I had fallen and was shaking and trembling.  God has eased my burdens and given me strength.  You my friends have done the same.  Thanks be to God and you all.

Thank you again for listening to me and giving me room to grow. 

Blessings to you all,

  1. This disease is a roller coaster ride. You have to be gentle with yourself on the bad days, because there are many. Overcoming them with faith is what makes us stronger each time. Eventually, you become as strong as those mountains, without even recognizing it along the way. I'm happy you're having a good day! They are to be treasured and remembered when things get tough. Hugs to you.
