It’s not my intent to conquer the mountain and pass myself by. I’ve been finding so much peace and wisdom here. The paths have a lot of rocks and remnants of past seasons, but they go up and forward, toward the burning sun. I will climb over, find a way through, dig a tunnel or simply stay and turn any mountain into a goldmine. With the grace of God of course. I saw God all around me today and felt His warmth in the trees and blacktop roads and local smiles. I heard God today in the bird’s song and murmuring water and laughter of my kindred friend- the kind of friend who knows you best. What a perfect day.
