I LOVE this entry. It is filled with such wisdom and food for thought. The quotes and verses you used throughout were perfect and the inserted thoughts of your own were insightful and uplifting. I'm sure this piece will be an inspiration and encouragement to many who read it. Powerful stuff!

This is a lovely, encouraging piece, and I particularly liked the last line. I did pick up one typo - sore for soar.

This is masterfully put together - the quotes, bible verses, and your "input" all meld together wonderfully. So much (and so many!) to learn from here!

My favorite line

The despair of the valley causes us to grow up – just a little.

Reminds me of the scripture line upon line, precept upon precept and glory upon glory. I guess that is why it is called a journey. Wonderful thought provoking message about how to see the valley we are in and the ones to come.....I hope I grow up just a little each day. Blessings

This is masterful - and powerful.

The quotes worked so well and the scriptures are perfect. I agree, the closing line about growing up a little is the icing on the cake - wonderful!
A really intriguing structure in a beautifully inspiring piece! In fact, you inspire me to stretch my lazy wings and use some more creative structures myself! LOL! Super entry!!
