Santo Domingo - Belorado 22.7km
Today was a good day. Good weather. Just now starting to rain a bit at 9pm, but it was good all day. In comparison to yesterday… Yesterday it rained hard all day. I walked with my head down all day, just watching my feet through my hood. I just had this small window of sight through my hood. I could just see my feet and a step or two of ground ahead of me. It made me think of Psalm 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. I was thinking about how God only shows you the next step in front of you, just giving you enough window that you can see the next step and go forward. Made me remember Frank telling us about the lamps and showing us how they hung from a cord and only lit the next step in the path in front of the person’s feet. That’s all I could see in the rain. I couldn’t focus on anything else, just the next step that I could see through the opening in my hood. I couldn’t focus on what was ahead or on the scenery or on the rain, just the next step or two in the path and keep moving forward.
It was a time of introspection and being by myself and being in His presences. There wasn’t any interaction with other pilgrims during this time, just the rain and reflection on Him. Just water and mud and the little piece of the road that I could see.
I have more to share about today, but it’s almost lights out and I need to get situated in my bed. I’ll share more tomorrow.
