There is a way that leads to life

I am a Christian, a wife and the mother of three boys, by adoption.

My hope lies in the Light of the World, but my days are shadowed by the mental illness and disorders that my boys battle. I hold to the fact that where there is shadow, there must also be light. The title of my blog came from the song lyrics below.

I will share time.

There is a way that leads to life
The few that find it never die
Past mountain peaks graced white with snow
The way grows brighter as it goes

(Chorus) There is a road inside of you
Inside of me there is one too
No stumbling pilgrim in the dark
The road to Zion's in your heart
The road to Zion's in your heart

The river runs beside the road
Its waters living as they flow
In liquid voice the water calls
On thirsty knees the pilgrim falls

Sometimes a shadow dark and cold
Lays like a mist across the road
But be encouraged by the sight
Where there's a shadow, there's a light

Sometimes it's good to look back down
We've come so far - we've gained such ground
But joy is not in where we've been
Joy is who's waiting at the end

...Petra, The road To Zion

Yeay!!! My email won't send out at the moment, so now I can still let you know I got your message.

Because I love you, when I get back (or maybe tomorrow) I'll tell you how to keep the spam off your blog. The little pests have found a way to invade here, too, but they have a solution. (If you look on the main blogger board, you might find it.)

Off for a date with dh, later tater!
