Earlier today I felt prompted of the Holy Spirit to call someone that I knew is going through a particularly tough time right now. I reminded them that life will not always be like it is for them right now – what they are going through will pass and life will get better. It is so easy when we are going through the valleys in our lives to forget that.
Right now I am going through a “mountain top” experience with the birth of my first grandchild. I know that life must go on and get back to “normal.” But this mountain top experience has reminded me of a great “life lesson.” When we are going through valleys its hard to see. You get bogged down in the pain and pressure of the situation you are going through. That is why it is so important to remember the mountain top experiences – they help you see over the valleys.
Right now you may be going through one of those “valley times.” Let me encourage you to remember some of your mountain top experiences. Let them be a reminder that life can be good and let them be a reminder that God will be faithful. Hang in there my dear friend – no valley is forever.
Blessings to you,

P.S. The picture of the day is special to me – three “David Lee Kemp’s”! Do you think the world is ready for that!
