Here she was at the top and the view
was magnificent. She spread out her
arms in triumph. She had always wanted
to climb a mountain, any mountain and
she had done just that. She felt terrific.
On top of the world.
She had achieved more than climbing
to the top of a mountain. She had
not allowed the discouragement and
doubts of her friends and family to
stop her. She had told herself that
with God nothing was impossible.
With His help and strength, she
would do it. And she did. This was
as much His triumph as hers.
As for climbing back down…well, she
wouldn’t worry about that right
now. She was going to stay there
at the top for a while, enjoying
the view and her achievement.
