i’m finally in the mood to sit and reflect, to recollect and to share in what i hope to be a somewhat eloquent manner…
it’s been three days since the end of a rather strenuous week filled with much thinking (which isn’t quite supposed to happen when school’s out, is it?), and luckily i’m still in awe of all the things God has done for us, for me, during that time…

if i had to pick a personal theme for this year’s recweek, i would say that it was a week of healing. “cleansing” would work as well, but “healing” was the first word that ran across my mind as i was thinking of a simple way to sum up the week. not physical healing, as i don’t think i got sick (yay), but rather a spiritual and perhaps emotional healing.
as i try to develop this argument (why was it a week of healing? and not..growing, or learning, or building, or any other word i could possibly imagine?) more, i realize that healing was also a theme in Jesus’ ministry as told by Mark. He healed people holistically, thoroughly, in every aspect of the word. Physically, psychologically, socially, ritually (is that even a word?), emotionally, spiritually.. Jesus healed, through and through. so is it not fitting that Jesus would heal me on this week that i have to think long and hard about his past healings through the Mark I track?

<alright i’ve lost some steam and will continue this thought process on another occassion>
