The final push

Written by Admin on . Posted in Uncategorized

I have been walking with a friend named Francisco from the beginning. He is like walking with the tortoise. He is very slow but consistent,mostly walking the 19 to 24 kilometers a day. I am mostly walking about an hour a head of him always but the last section of the Camino. We begin to walk the last two sections and he does not stop. We walk 25 kilometers and he says lets go farther. We keep walking another 23kilometers, till we arrive in Santiago. He said he felt God was driving him forward. He would often say I was so driving him.0
This last sections was very hard but it was as we began, but with the great relief of walking into the church of Saint James and being able kneel at the crypt. We woke up the next morning overwhelmed that we walked 48 kilometers and the Camino was completed 33 days and 500 miles. The question we asked our selves was, where did the time go?. We have walked for 33 days 500 miles in wind and rain, over mountain and across prairies, through small villages and great cities. The Camino is truly like life. We begin life never truly thinking of the end but knowing it will end. The thing we must learn is, like the Camino we must not forget to see God around us in everything and to truly relish the gift He gives us. He is present in everything and everyone and if we forget to see him and to talk to him and about him we truly miss the great journey we are on. May God lead us always on our journey.
