Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

“Somehow I can’t believe that there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secrets of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four Cs. They are curiosity, confidence, courage, and constancy, and the greatest of all is confidence. When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.”
― Walt Disney Company

The lovely photo is from Sedona, AZ. If I was a rock climber or mountain climber it would be a thrill to climb that. But alas, I am not. I climb other kinds of mountains, and so do many of you. But this post is not about the mountains I have climbed. It is about the mountains my son has climbed. I know I just wrote about this yesterday; but for me it is a week of a bit of bragging.

If you met my son you, too, would be his biggest fan. He has a heart as big as the great outdoors. He loves as completely as the enormity of mountains. He has put huge effort into his education. He has been a writer since he was a little guy, and he crafted book after book and story after story. He would use whatever paper and construction paper and hunks of cardboard he could get his hands on. He suffered through times of being bullied by people you would expect to know better. With love, patience, prayer, counseling, and protection, he has healed and grown. He has forgiven, gained strength, and moved on.

His faith in God grew by leaps and bounds. Metaphorically, he has climbed many mountains. Literally, he has also climbed a few mountains.  He studied, worked, and learned throughout his collegiate career. His hard work paid off in great grades. Hopefully his hard work will also pay off in  a wonderful job. He certainly has the reward of a well-formed mind, and a strong faith. I am so very proud of the man he has become. He is authentically loving, joyous, giving, thoughtful, faithful to God, and a host of other virtues as well.

I am rejoicing in his pending graduation, and I shout from the mountaintops~well done, Josh!
