I don’t know what I would do if I had to take a day off. This is Saturday and once I get this written I will be off on some project or other here at the ranch where something is always calling help. Help to finish the firewood, to get the winter damage cleaned up, fix the trail up, all that. The good part of that is that I no longer have great anxiety over it. I just find it rewarding to be busy.
It came up in Bible Guys today, “What would you do if you only had one week to live?” A very telling question this one. I’ve been through this more times then I can remember with my cancer hobby always looming. Something to think about.
And I want to catch up on Annie’s quotes. Can we do two again? That would do it. Here is Day 15: “Ultreya et Suseia!” Annie writes that these are Latin words used primarily on the Camino. It is ancient graffiti coming down to us from far away in time.
It’s purpose is to urge us on, to keep going on our Camino. Very cool I would say to get this from our forebears.
Then to get us totally up to speed there is this quote for Day 16: “Let me seek, then, the gift of silence, and poverty, and solitude where everything I touch is turned into a prayer, the wind in the trees is my prayer, for God is all in all.” Thomas Merton
Oh, how totally lovely. This could really be every day but I am thinking how well this fits with the earlier question about how would you spend your final week? This seems like a plan here to me at the moment. We should have that kind of peace to just be and be in touch with God so intimately.
Yea, it is classic gray sky overhead here at Raven Ranch. Time for lunch and then a few precious hours of being outside. Ivette our old friend is here and Cathy and Tim and another couple are coming later today. We are all havin dinner out and a concert here locally.
Later loves, Felipé.
