A Company of Two

Proverbs 16:9. The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.

We have hiked up and down the foothill’s trails around Boise climbing 1700 feet up to spectacular views of Boise. We have also been stopped by the snow line which seemed to take a long time to recede this year. Are we ready? We will shortly be put to the test. On the first day out, the Pyrenees Mountains will have to be crossed. We think we are ready for the physical effort but are we ready for the mental challenge of starting each day with a long walk ahead of us?

Will fellow hikers/pilgrims be as friendly as the hikers in Boise? We think so. We expect to stop and talk with people from all over the world. We are taking wooden cross necklaces on this pilgrimage. The crosses will be given to fellow pilgrims and some will be left along the way for strangers to find. Hopefully, the crosses will be given to and found by people who need them the most.

The most important thing that will travel with us are the blessings from all of you who have encouraged us and given us moral support. With your support and God’s protection, our journey begins today. Buen Camino!

  3. Buen Camino my friends. I love the idea of the wooden crosses! It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon, so take your time, enjoy every step, relish each blister as the cost of admission. You’ll be challenged along The Way, but you will be rewarded with more strength than you can imagine. Draw strength from others, and lend it to those who need it. I’m excited for your adventure!
