As we journey into the season of Advent, we hear today about mountains and valleys. I have 2 questions to reflect upon this week. 1) What are the mountains or other obstacles in my path that blocks my way to the joy of Christ? 2) Are there valleys or deserts that bring me low or leave me weak? Lord God, you are so good and you can help me to deal with whatever keep me from focusing on Christ and miss the joy of Christ this Advent and Christmas Season. We have an Awesome God!! :-)
