I was just communicating with a new friend on FB. She saw the documentary and decided to look me up. I wrote to her saying to check into this blog which was my five year attempt to describe the collision of Cancer, Catholicism and Camino. The first time I have used that word collision in this process. Maybe it is apt.
Speaking of this blog, I was emailing to our neighbor Michelle and describing this blog as reporting. She jumped on that saying that it was much more. Well, OK. She is right it is more. I should look at it more in this way. Well I do look at it like that. It is probably just the way I talk about it. Sort of a way to downplay it, in an “aw shucks” way Anyway yes, it may be a poetic way to look at life.
So, here we are at day three of Lent and of Annie’s book. Here is her quote for today, “I used to think that God was the sun, God is the sun, but God’s so much more than than the Earth, or the stars, or all of creation. God is Creator, All in All. Needing us to shine It’s light as me, as you.” from Use Me by Rickie Byers & Michael Beckwith.
This is all stuff that goes on in the inner pilgrimage which happens simultaneously with the physical pilgrimage. It is grueling as the other. If this isn’t happening it’s not a pilgrimage it is merely walking or hiking or trekking on vacation. There is something challenging about this that is an important part of the process to strengthen our spiritual connections. Then showing this to our fellow man is “It’s light as me, as you.” It’s learning, internalizing and mirroring as I see it.
OK, snowing more now once again. Hmm. Time to go for Felipé.
Thanks for stopping by loves, Felipé.
