Good Friday 2018

Last year, my first daughter Joy carried this backpack walking the camino with me. The pack became heavier each day of the walk but finally she could let it slide off of her back at the end. What a wonderful feeling it is when you take the backpack off your back. Life is full of burdens, worries, fears, shame and sorrow.. We carry the burdens, all of the things which weigh us down to sink us. It's like carrying your heavy backpack for the rest of your life. How can I be free of the burdens? I have found the way! 
"Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest" said Jesus. 

Do you feel burdened with the pressures of life? With sorrow, with heartache, with pain? Do you feel pressed on every side? Perplexed? Hunted down and knocked down? Here are the words from 2 Corinthians 4:8-10.
"We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body"
Jesus is waiting for you to let it go then to walk away free and whole. Come just as you are..  
Buen Camino! 
Good Friday 2018
