Sailing with you, daddy

I’d like to sail to lands afar

Out on a boat that’s built for two

Beneath a canopy of stars

That would be just like a dream come true

Just to be with you

–“When We’re Together”, Mark Harris, from Courageous

Dad,

I look forward to sailing the lands afar with you.

I didn’t know until I was listening to this song one day . . .

I should have known, though, because your life in Christ was lived in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

. . . But I didn’t know until I was listening to this song one day . . . that you had, in all joy . . standing before the presence of God . . realized I was hopelessly lost to sea . . and appealed for me.

Until our boats meet,

Teej

Never stop praying. (1 Thessalonians 5:17, NLT)
