  1. “But some mountains we climb only because we have to. Because the alternative is failure, divorce, defeat, even death…

    So we climb, one shaky foot above the other.”

    how is it that these timely, well spoken, true to my heart clutter now made clear, comments of another sister are here when I so needed them? Thank you for sharing.
    I’ll be passing this along to my “belayer”/sister-in-the-Lord.

  2. God is sooo good isn’t He Melody! He always knows just what we need and and when we need it. Blessings to you sister. I’m so thankful for a place like (in)courage where we ladies can share our hearts. It’s incredible how God uses our written voice to encourage each other. So sweet! ~love~

  3. We all have mountains to climb…

    At times we have a choice to climb or not, other times we just have to do it.
    At both times, it becomes easier having somebody to do climbing with you…

    At all times, life goes on…

  4. As a rock climber, this was beautifully written. I’ve shared it with many of my friends who continue to encourage me to keep climbing even when it seems that there are no holds. Thank you for this beautiful post.
