The Value of the Valley

In the past when I've heard the word "valley", it's always been something negative attached to it. Thirst. Hunger. Desperation. Lowness.

3 Ways God is Preparing Me for Marriage

And the Lord answered me, and said, “Write the vision, and make it plain upon tablets, that he may run that readeth it" -- Habakkuk 2:2   It was either August or September of 2017.
