Chapter 7 – “Every day is a battle”
When I came to this chapter I decided to use an illustration from a book of paintings and poetry entitled Timescapes published by my friend Margaret and myself in 2015. The painting depicts walk I made in the mountains of Southern Germany.
Walking along a narrow path, which became more and more frightening as we made our way round the ribs of the mountain, I prayed every step of the way that I wouldn’t stumble and fall into the valley far below. Another lady in the group was even more terrified than I was. Imagine my surprise when I finished the painting to see the face on the mountain depicting, I felt, the “enemy” who puts fear into our hearts and who always wants to deter us from walking on in faith.
