Life in the Valley of the Shadow of Death

We all hit valley's and they often are places of intimidation and require decisions on our part.  These places can seem to have way out but if you look up you may see beauty you didn't expect even here
What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger?  I think that's not something that just happens...you must decide to live and be stronger.  Clouds make a better sunset you might say
You can't stop the setting of the sun but you can appreciate it's beauty knowing the sun will rise again
Emotions spasm, circumstances change, people betray but truth is truth
Truth bends for no one...it's universal and unavoidable so we must align with it.  See the aphids and ignore the ladybug and risk being negative
As for me I choose the sunny face of truth

  3. Well said Joe. Great expression in words, and Beautiful photos. Jesus is with us in the valleys, as well as the mountain tops. Keep trusting Him for He will lead us through it all. :)

  4. Grandma used to tell me that you have to go through the bad times to appreciate the good ones. I do agree about that.. Hope things look up for you soon. I love the photos and agree that clouds do make a more interesting sunset or sunrise for that matter. One day at a time holding God's hand will get us all through.

  5. Joe, it's a simple thing really but I have depended on this heavily. Fear stalks His children. If we keep our eye on Him at all times (trust and have faith) He holds our hand and equips us for whatever we need. Never leaving us and His Spirit unfailingly with us. If you need me, you know where I am including phone number.
