Within this reflection: Whether it is life’s troubles that cause pain or pain that causes mental anguish, humans have the ability to persevere. It is a personal process that takes a different path and amount of time for each of us, but, with faith, can ultimately have a positive, joyful ending.
About the photos: The photos were taken on a hike of Hay Mountain near Daleville, Virginia. While hiking along a ridge overlooking Carvins Cove, a rain storm moved in. We hiked nearly out in the open vulnerable to the chilling rain for nearly 20 minutes, when along came the sun, warmth and a clear view. Now that is life’s trials perfectly depicted by nature.
