My calling to El Camino!!!
Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; Psalm 141:2 – 2
I heard of El Camino de Santiago for the first time in 2013. I saw a few pictures on FB, a couple of friends had walked the Camino, and they suggested that everyone should live this experience at least once in their lifetime. I commented on their beautiful pictures, and hoped that I would one day be able to do this myself. After my posts, I looked up what “The Camino” was about, but after that first search I didn’t really give it much thought. For those of you who do not know, walking The Camino is, for many, a Spiritual pilgrimage that is walked by over 200,000 people each year. Pilgrims are following in the footsteps of the disciples with one common goal, reaching the Tomb of the Apostle Saint James, this Camino can be started at different routes throughout Europe, but as it is also said, your Camino starts at home.
Once you feel God’s calling, you really can’t hide forever and soon you will find yourself on your way to walk your own Camino.
How and when was your calling? Were there tears, goose bumps? How did your Spirit feel like? I hope that this blog inspires you to share your own yearning to go experience what others are describing, I now have the Camino virus and I haven’t even walked yet, let me know if you have been contracted by leaving your comments and inspiring words!!
