Climb Every Mountain



Right now I'm in the middle of writing an essay and I'm reflecting on the last few years of my life as well as looking towards the future.

Do you remember the movie The Sound of Music? It's one of my favorite movies. Maria is a young woman who wants to commit her life to the church, but falls in love with a man who is already involved with another women and has a houseful of children. When she realizes her feelings she becomes ashamed and goes to her Reverend Mother asking to take her vows, but the Reverend Mother reminds her that sometimes we must explore every path, and pursue what we love, to find out where God wants us.

Can anyone else identify with that? 

There's so much to be said for being with the people you love and doing the things you love--and taking your time figuring out what and who those are.

Climb every mountain,
Search high and low,
Follow every byway,
Every path you know.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
'Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life,
For as long as you live.

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
Till you find your dream.


Love God. Love People.
Have a lovely day.
