Yesterday was a refreshing day of rest for all of us. We each drew apart at times for communion with the Spirit.
Both Tomas and Mei desired to venture on to see what lay beyond our line of sight, but we prevailed upon them to just wait.
This morning, therefore, we were more than ready to depart. So, we let loose the young people to tumble down the mountain ahead of us.
More switchbacks eased our descent and we remained bundled up against a bracing cold. And thankfully no sign of Stan’s presence, brooding or otherwise, disturbed our peace.
The Captain and I lagged behind and filled our time with conversation on many topics. But at their center was Jerusalem.
