It’s been a long “while” for a blog, and sometimes it feels like a “while” means “a lot of different things have been happening”, only it’s not. In the past couple of months I have been in a valley, but trust me, there is no defeat on my side. There have been incidents, events, and changes that have occurred to me, but to all of us, also. I happen to like my routines of every day, but I also know of how a change can wake you up, which causes a reaction, and I think of this as a positive. Why not??? I had three brain tumors, radiation twice, couple of seizures, loss of speech, among other things, so really, why would I get upset over a few things, that seems to want to get into my life??? Answer: I JUST WON’T LET IT!!! Now, how can I be so bold to just say that? Faith. That’s what I have, and plenty of it. There is no valley that is so deep that we can’t ascend up. We’re not in a bubble, where we have to stay; another light, of another day, keeps shining over our faces, so let’s go on a trek, to that peak. As ” 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
“We have troubles all around us, but we are not defeated. We do not know what to do, but we do not give up the hope of living. We are persecuted, but God does not leave us. We are hurt sometimes but we are not destroyed.”
Think about that, we all can get out of our little jams because, “we are not defeated.” When you watch an NFL or college or high school games and you’ve seen that great “Hail Marys” defeat the opposition; 59 minutes and 59 seconds have expired in a game and you have one chance to win, and the opposing defense, in their own stadium, with the crowd shouting against you, is set up to not let this one play score a touchdown, and it does! Your team was not destroyed, it persevered! That’s what we do, we persevere. That peak is not so high, its NOT! That peak is not so high! We scored, and we walked off the field, heads high! Always keep that head high, peaks are just the top of the hill, and hills are there to climb. So trek up to the top, stomp that foot down, and say this is my turf, my stadium, my light…MY PEAK!
