Dark Valleys

Sometimes in the valleys that we walk through, there are areas that get so dark that you cannot even see those that are standing beside you.  I'm in a valley right now, and I can't seem to see anyone beside me.  I know that I am not alone, and because of the Lord's great comfort, strength and joy, I have not felt fear.  He is illuminating my way.

For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me...Psalm 23:4c

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path...Psalm 119:105

My Dad had brain surgery this week.  He hemorrhaged another time but he is recovering very well.  I have not had a chance to put our Thanksgiving pictures up or our preparations for Christmas.  We have been going through the Jesse Tree.  Will try to update soon.  Please keep our family in your prayers.
