The Journey is...

  Pilgrim along the journey  
  posted October 5, 2010  

On the balcony wall just outside my study door is a wire plaque with the words, The Journey is Everything. And so I begin this journey of pilgrimage with a heart open to encounter God in everything along the way.

I am packed and ready to leave. The Holy Island of Lindisfarne and the Isle of Iona and the Iona Community beckon me. Iona will be a pilgrimage of return. Lindisfarne will be a completely new experience. I have completed my little rituals of preparation and letting go. These include cleaning the house. I enjoy returning to an ordered home so that the “little habits of the afterlife of pilgrimage” can take root in my life. I have emailed and called friends and family asking for their prayers. There was a wonderful walk with a friend after several days of rain. I took in the colors and smells of fall in this place to carry with me. I completed the outline of dates and locations for my husband. We shared a wonderful dinner and talked about the joy of travel and pilgrimage.

I set forth with the words of Saint Teresa of Avila to inspire me.
The feeling remains that God is on the journey, too.

Blessings, Susan
