My heart is with you, Elizabeth, in your suffering. I hope this brings you some comfort.

Would things of spring seem quite as nice
Without harsh winter's wind and ice;
Without the summer's sulty air
Would spring seem even half as fair?

If rainy days were never here
Would still the fair ones seem as clear;
If skies above were never gray
Could azure steal my heart away?

Would joy still swell my heart the same
If sorrow never knew my name;
If pain had never stayed the night
Would times more kind appear as light?

High mountain peaks and canyons grand
Both speak His mighty awesome hand;
The desert sands, the oceans blue
Each cast uniquely heaven's hue.

Denise, this is wonderful. I've often felt you can't appreciate the peak of a mountain until you've walked through the valley!

i was actually just trying to explain to a
friend who is going through a real hard time
at the moment why these times are almost
necessary in a way so that we can appreciate
the good times, and that they build us up and
strengthen us in endurance, and so that we can later help others with similar experiences - your poem (so beautifully written) captures exactly what i was trying to explain - may i have your permission to post it to her? please email me and let me know - i'd appreciate it. Thanks, Mirjam.

Life must have some ups and some downs
for that is what makes it so rich.
How can we enjoy a mountianous high
if we've never been down in a ditch?
