On Monday Sept 17th at this hour we should be in the air on our way to Portugal. I keep thinking about why we’re doing this. There are as many reasons as there are people to walk the Camino. Often it is looking for a grace from God. If that is it for us, then I think the grace would be a deeper sense of God’s presence and strength through Mark’s illness.
It will be important now to walk with a load most days to get the habit of loading and going every day. I’m looking forward to seeing Mark again in about 9 or 10 days.
