Instead, I am--if you can believe it--still gripped with every part of my being by this adventure we have set out on. This thing that grows larger and more compelling every day, so much so that I cannot look away from it. And now, another long sailing voyage ahead that will take energy and much prayer and a, "Chin up, old girl!" lecture to myself even to set out on it. Which seems to be what it takes to do anything after one reaches a certain age.
Would you like to join us? You are invited to come along. In fact, we need you! For all those times the seas are too choppy or the wind is too strong, or when all those long lovely turns at the wheel fill one's mind full to bursting with glorious thoughts and there is no one else awake to talk them over with. I will come here during those times. Maybe you and I can still visit and pray together now that we live in an age when time and distance no longer exist, and it truly is possible to connect with each other at any moment. Yes, I will enjoy that!
We are leaving Ventura Harbor, California aboard the 46' sailboat Liberty, on May 8th, headed north toward Seattle, praying for fair winds and following seas all the way. Which I am told is quite impossible along this route. Then again, it has been my experience that there is nothing--absolutely nothing--that is impossible with God, so it should be quite interesting. We will also be signing on a crew of prayer partners who will commit to praying for us whenever we come to mind, or jotting a comment now and again if they would like. Your name will be entered in the ship's log and we will keep you updated on our activities whenever Internet service is possible.
Many thanks and blessings to you in advance and to all who stop by just to see!
