On the eve of arriving into Santiago I was wondering what to write. Then a WhatsApp appeared from my best pal H. I think my whole Camino journey is summed up in this hymn he sent.

1 Eternal Spirit of the living Christ,
I know not how to ask or what to say;
I only know my need, as deep as life,
And only you can teach me how to pray.
2 Come, pray in me the prayer I need this day;
Help me to see your purpose and your will,
Where I have failed, what I have done amiss;
Held in forgiving love, let me be still.
3 Come with the strength I lack,
bring vision clear
Of human need; oh, give me eyes to see
Fulfillment of my life in love outpoured:
My life in you, O Christ; your love in me.
As I finish my Camino it is only the start of my next chapter. I read a sign a few days ago which said "Live a great story". I have lived a great story with Linda, the great story continues without her so definitely different but still with the help of Christ it will be a great story.
