Jan 22, 2012 Approaching The House of God

So we finally found David’s house – The House of God, as he named it. It was much less than a shack that he hand-built off of a deserted barn. I know for a fact that most pets in America live in much better conditions than David. But, what about his beaming smile? What about his voice filled with genuine gladness when he shouted “Hey, where are you from?” And, what about his last words to us; “Just enjoy!” Meaning, ‘you think you are lost but you are never lost’. Okay, here is the kicker… When we were saying good-bye to him, he said, “Okay, bye! but, I am always here!” and he pointed his finger towards my heart….

I shall remember David whenever any doubt creeps into my mind that I might be lost….

It was a memorable day, to say the least. I don’t know why, but both J and I thought about St. Francis a lot on that day.

  1. Ahhhh I have a photo of a Norwegian woman relaxing on that hammock in the sunshine. And I sat with two Australians last June against the edge of that building getting a bit of shade before walking on! How seasons change our experiences!
