The wonderful word that came to mind was valley. In life we talk about our up moments and our down moments; the peaks and valleys of living.
In geology, a valley is an elongate depression of the earth's surface usually between ranges of hills or mountains. Visually speaking a valley is a place of great beauty. I believe God designed the earthly valleys to be exactly that way so while we felt low we had a beautiful place to reside. He is mindful of us always and in all ways.
