Traveling through the Valley



















When you have walked
through the valley of the shadow
and death came anyway
(not to you, 
for you did.not.die)
and there is breath in you
to greet the day.
when you survive the 
shredding of your soul
to its core
and the disappearance of 
dreams,
all other challenges--
man made, God-breathed--
like snow--
can only provide 
another opportunity
to see which way 
you will be strong
this time.

  2. Oh my goodness, Jody! This is pure, unadulterated worship, right here. Such a surrender of your daughter and a Holy interceding and celebrating and offering up of her life, as her sister in Christ. Rich blessings over what God does through this bending of your self.

    1. thank you, Amy. It's a hard day for her, back at home alone after losing her baby a week ago. But God is holding her; we covet your prayers.

  3. smiles...coming through the shadow i think
    we often have a greater appreciation
    and even capacity for worship
    in realizing how we can not do it in our own strength
    and must rely on dependence on him.

    got your email....will send it on.
