A friend emailed that it sounded like I was having day in the valley.
We’ve journed to Haiti together and I know she loves the mountains. The village that caught my heart was actually a lush valley where a little girl grabbed my hand to show me around for the day.
Often we think of a valley as a negative. Yes, limited vision but yet protection. I am traveling a valley but I know God is protecting me. I doubt I’ll ever want a total mountain journey.
My rambling may not make much sense today but does it need to?
Which would you prefer?
A voice of one calling:
“In the desert prepare
the way for the LORD;
make straight in the wilderness
a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be raised up,
every mountain and hill made low;
the rough ground shall become level,
the rugged places a plain.
And the glory of the LORD will be revealed,
and all mankind together will see it.
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
Isaiah 40:3-5 repeated in Luke 3
