Wonderful parallels. Looking forward to the end of the journey and final laying down of all burdens. It is almost beyond imagination!

You had a good message here. I was surprised when your piece ended. I might have expanded a bit, comparing the weight you carried to the weight of sin, which also was carried for us ont he cross. The "phantom" pains you experienced when you got home were like the consequences or guilt we sometimes experience as Christians. Like you said, you still felt the weight but the weight was gone!
Lots of food for thought. Well done.
Blessings, Lynda

Lovely and tender. Well done.
Interesting! I agree - there are thoughts here than could be developed and applied to our walk of faith.

I imagine that is what heaven is like--free from pain, free from burdens, free from journey. I think you did a good job in comparison. I also feel that it could have been expounded on a little further--mainly because hearing about a portion of a missionaries life is interesting to me, and I would have liked to have seen more. God bless ya, littlelight

Your 'back-breaking journey' ... yep, I identify! Not as a child - as a single woman who keeps travelling between China and Australia, I carry it all myself. Why do we do it? And how wonderful it is to stop travelling and put down the bags for a while! Thanks for sharing.
