Lent, Wednesday, Fifth Week

My card for today was inspired by famous words of Jesus in John. He says about himself that he is a door for a cattle of sheep. Jesus leads them outside and they follow him because they know him. Outside he takes them to nice green grass (sheep is not meant belittling, although it sounds like that). 

                         

I’ve pulled Sword Four from the Arthurian Tarot. The place Jesus leads me to, is not outside, but inside. The road leads to a an easy accessible chapel. In this chapel I can lay down my sword, in order to rest. The process of becoming comfortable in raising my prizes has cost five months. I have pulled lots and lots of Pentacles during these months. I need to rest, and I can. Well, if nothing else comes up.
