The ground is hard beneath my feet
As I walk a rocky path through the valley
Of the shadow of death

I hear his voice calling to me softly
As I traverse the cactus blooming
Along the side of the road

Itís so cold in the shadow of the mountain
Rising up majestically in the air
Covering the ground with shade

I search for a ray of sunlight as I climb
The steep and winding trails of my
Own personal Mount Sinai.

As I rise from the valley, I feel the
Kiss of the clouds and the wind caresses
My cheek with just a brush of her hand.

Sunlight peeps from the evergreens
Warming my face, my hands and my
Cold, cold heart.

Grass appears underfoot and the ground
Softens underneath my feet which are
Sore from the miles and miles I traveled.

I hear the whisper of his voice as I
Reach the summit of the mountain.
His voice welcomes me home.

Hi Celeste. I just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry, Life's Path, actually did very well in the Hard and Soft Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 1, placing 9th in that Level. There were a lot of entries this week, and competition in Level 1 is always very intense, so well done.

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.
Again, well done. :-)

Hope to see you at the FaithWriters' Conference in August.

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
