Another 14.9 miles under my feet. No mention of Jane Austen anywhere today! Went through some lovely villages like Puttenham; first time I remember seeing Hop fields (used to brew beer).
Both Farnham where I started and Guildford where I am now are lovely places and worth a visit.
Didn’t have a great sleep because of foot problems and am so stiff. Struggled with my attitude at times, which came to a head when I couldn’t get my cape over the rucksack. Sorted in the end but many frustrations were voiced. I so like things to be …well, not too hard going and get frustrated when they aren’t. So it really struck me both how much I need grace but also how amazing it is that persecuted Christians are often so positive about living out their faith even in extremely hard circumstances. Think Hea Woo in yesterday’s video.
The above bridge was built by famous architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, to carry a road over the Pilgrim Way in the 1930’s. The way of the cross was immensely hard for Jesus but he went to Calvary because he thought you and I were worth saving.
Tomorrow I walk to Dorking-technically the longest day in the book plus travel to accommodation at each end. It feels like I need to do it one step at a time. For those who pray, support especially appreciated for physical capacity and right attitude.
And finally a very small reminder of the justgiving page on the main site page: every donation helps support those who really need it. Thank you.
