On a piece of paper

When I helped out at a recyling depot some years ago, I found this scribbled in a childlike manner on a tattered piece of paper. I have no idea who wrote these words but another blogger's post reminded me of them once again.

When faced with a mountain
I will not quit
I will keep on striving
until I climb over
find a path through
tunnel under
or simply stay
and turn the mountain into a goldmine
with God's help.


  1. I love the "simply stay and turn the mountain into a goldmine" part. It comes as a surprise, but suggests that the difficult situation we are in might offer a new opportunity if we don't leave. Amazing photo.

  2. Thanks Trix, that's encouraging :)
