Quaint, medieval towns dot the hilly landscape. A castle here, a military fortress there. Built in a time where strategic placement, thick stone walls and towers, and a commanding view of the surrounding countryside were imperative for military success. Our cottage overlooked the Pyrenees, the mountain range separating France from Spain…a place of refuge for many, and a natural wall of protection from invading armies.
Please pray Jackie, our gracious hostess at this cottage! To her, the hills and castles are a symbol of strength and refuge. Pray that she will grasp the significance of this verse we shared with her:
I lift my eyes up to the mountains, where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
