When I’m at my lowest
God picks me up
And plunks me down
At the top of the world.
Right where I need to be
When I need to be there.
I seem to get plunked too! Wonder if we will ever be plunked together? grin. Glad God takes good care of you, my friend.
Ha! I bet we will be plunked together! I envision us walking a mountain trail and coming across each other in complete surprise and immediately knowing one another. 🙂

… I agree – I think I’d know you even blind-folded, Colleen!
🙂 That felt good Stacey. 🙂 So, here’s to our meeting on the mountains!
We can call it our “summit”!
Can you introduce me to your God? Ha! I have a great deal of Faith although I am not religious. God tends to see me through problems rarely rewarding without effort on my part (Obviously a great deal is offered by Grace and often I think my efforts are cursory compared to the rewards.) That said I often find myself picked up and set back down in the teeth of the storm. Faith inevitably gets me through the storm and promotes growth, One day I am looking forward to being picked up and set down in a place of great beauty. 🙂
Paul, your comments captivate me. I want to know more every time you ‘talk’ to me.
So these storms you are plunked in to….you manage them well with faith as your sword/shield/umbrella? And you grow. And you continue to look forward to that great beauty. That is indeed faith. 🙂
Hmmm, excellent question Colleen – I’ll have to ponder that one. Honestly sword/shield/umbrella are not quite the right relationship – it is more like I integrate with the problem (obviously with a great deal of help from God) and move through it – not really protected ,like umbrella or shield, and not really attacking and beating back like a sword.

These are just side effects it seems of something bigger – and compared to some of the challenges, are bite sized stories of on-going sagas. Indeed your question is a good one Colleen.
Well now, it appears I have some weekend reading lined up! 😉
So maybe I’ll find out more about you through these.
I am sorry to hear you were feeling “down,” Colleen. You knew how to “get up” and receive what you needed, free of charge and full of the peace and love that passes all understanding.
Thank you Robin. I am fortunate, I do know what I need to do when I am ‘down’. Sometimes the effort of mental and emotional exertion demands a physical way of processing. And this worked beautifully. 🙂
Have an awesome weekend.
Thank you! And I hope your’s is as splendid as mine is starting to be. 🙂

It was a really good one. HUGS
You see beauty in many places, MBC. And this spot really is gorgeous. I’m glad it lifted your spirits. ❤
Thank you MBM. We are planning to go back with the ‘real’ camera and fall colors in full bloom. It’s a hidden treasure here.
Yay for hidden treasures, MBC. 🙂 ❤
What a faith builder you are! Wonderful, Colleen! ox
Thank you Debra! 🙂
A very pretty spot to be plunked I say! 😊
You would love it Jenn. So amazing. The crisp air. The smell of nothing but nature. I did not want to leave.
What a beautiful place the top of the world is!!
It is Priceless! 🙂 I hope to get better pictures next week.
I look forward to seeing your new pictures too!
Thank you Priceless. I just told my hiking friend today that when we go back, I’m not leaving. 🙂
Hahaha! I know what you mean. To beautiful to leave.
The top of the world. A.m.e.n.
It’s glorious Tess. 🙂
What a great way to look at it 🙂
🙂 Thanks NAPR. 🙂
This is so so beautiful, and faith restoring 🙂
Thank you Ocean Bream. It truly restored my energies.
I’m glad for that but I hope you’re okay.
🙂 You are kind. I am okay Huck. Just a mentally draining day. 🙂
Sorry to hear that.
Nah, it’s okay. I don’t mind days like that. It really keeps me processing, and makes me use resources I normally wouldn’t. Keeps me moving. 🙂
Well that’s good.
Yes, every time. He did that to me just this week, in fact. Down…even further down…then up! I second what Gibber said – hope you’re okay.
I am okay MWAI. Thank you 🙂 Mental fatigue. Gets me more than physical fatigue. He is good.
You are right about that. I rather be physically tired any day over mentally. I’m glad to hear that you are okay.
Thank you MWAI. 🙂
