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!
Lord, please strengthen Faye on this portion of her journey. Thank you for giving her the gift of imagination to bless her. May you carry her and feed her from your table, in the presence of this enemy. Comfort and heal. In Jesus’s name, amen.
Faye, I am so sorry, I wasn’t aware you were going through this. My prayers are with you!
