Reflection: I write this while sitting on the porch of a mountaintop cottage. While there are many places to get away, one of my favorites is in the mountains. So at least once a year I travel here for time with friends, time alone and time with God.
Isaiah prophesied, "On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich for all peoples... On this mountain...the Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces. Let us rejoice." (from Isaiah 25: 6-9)
That truly is my experience on this mountain. Lots of good food, a few tears wiped away and much rejoicing. Surely we trust in God. He saves us and we can be glad. Where is your mountain? --Ruth Gates, Camp Mount Luther Family Camper
