Our Pilgrimage.

Coastal Ways Camino
Portugal, Spain.

Porto to Santiago.
August 25th to September 6th, 2016

It took us 13 straight days to walk the walk,
you can do it in just 18 minutes, 16 seconds!

Many have asked why did we decide to walk the Portugal Coastal Way Camino. After all, we are no spring chickens (67/72). We aren't "hikers." We are not affluent people. And so on.

Today, I did my daily morning reading and it provided a good explanation of why ML and I do a lot of the things we do in our lives now. So I thought I'd share it with you all.

For what it's worth for you.

The Daily Word, Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Life is perpetually calling me to greater expressions of my Christ Potential. While times of rest provide essential nourishment during my life journey, occasionally, I may catch myself lingering for too long in the safety of the known. Am I stuck in a rut? Am I striving for my full potential?

Spirit is calling me to seek out opportunities for growth. I might elect to take on a hobby, join a community, or some other commitment that invites me to more fully express my God-given gifts. Taking on challenges as well as squarely meeting the ones before me helps me to build fortitude and flexibility.

By being willing to get out of my comfort zone, I expand my horizons, gaining confidence to handle new, unexpected situations.

"But strive for the greater gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way.—1 Corinthians 12:31"
