The Ragamuffin Kid

occasional rumblings of the bedraggled, beat-up and burnt-out

My Photo

I am a traveller on my way Home, passing through this little land. It's a lovely place, though nothing compared to where I'm heading, I was told. I have journeyed through several valleys. Not the kindest place I must say. But hey, I've had some "mountain top" experiences too. They made me long for Home. I heard there are no valleys at Home. I have met some fellow travellers along the way. But mostly find myself among locals. If you're local, please bear with my quirkiness. I know my accent and ways are puzzling sometimes. If you're a fellow traveller, keep going. We should be reaching soon. Bon voyage!

Moving On

"How've you been?" a friend decided to check on me yesterday.

"Why do you ask?"

"Cos I've just read you blog"

"Oh I see..."

I contemplated for a while.

"Well....pretty screwed I guess.......but life goes on"

For some strange reason, although our conversation was brief and nothing much was said besides that which was already up on the blog, I felt renewed strength to move on. Perhaps it comes from a sense of knowing that those struggles have been acknowleged, that gave me the release to move on, regardless of whether my condition improves. From this experience I learned that we can be an agent of God's grace when we acknowledge one anothers pain. No need for further probing or words of wisdom.
