On the radium journey it is now week 4. 6 days to go.
I am thankful indeed for prayers, and more grateful than I can say that the undergirding Grace of God and His Presence with me has made this a journey of both faith and LIFE. Personally, a ‘zonked out’ lack of motivation is my biggest hurdle, and this can be very debilitating.
Once again in week 4 I asked the Lord to inspire my imagination and during treatment, journey with me. (I told technicians what I was going to do and where I was going to go). In so many ways it has been inspirational and even ‘fun’. On a table there was a book with lots of recipes in it. I flipped through. Then, in a Homes Section, I saw the picture of a man’s study with an open door leading to a little pathway disappearing into the distance. It had a caption ‘I can smell the surf while sitting at my computer’.
I looked at the image closely and told the girls as I lay on the table ready for treatment, about the picture. They were intrigued, and I shared later. I began in imagination to walk down the pathway. What will I see? There were several small pebbled steps. I began to count them…there were ten. A little sandy path meandered towards the sea….. I could hear it pounding in the distance. (For two days that’s as far as I could journey). Treatment was over and I had go.
By the end of the week I managed to get further. I did not delay or count the steps. On Friday I burst through the trees and saw an expanse of sand in both directions. Most of all and this I know was pure imagination ………the sand was covered with shells. It was a moment of absolute beauty and Grace. Then, I had to get up, dress and start the journey home. The image above is a very poor reflection of the scene in imagination but it gives a glimpse. One, more beautiful, I did find on the internet may have been copyrighted I could not verify.
Divine LOVE is like that unmarked shelly beach.
I ask for all of you in this day and for this week ahead that you may know it in your lives like flooding rain.
We journey onwards. Shalom!
