The Port of Heaven................November 8

"To reach the port of heaven,
we must sail sometimes with the wind
and sometimes against it,
but we must sail,
and not drift,
nor lie at anchor."

Oliver Wendell Holmes

And sooner or later, we have to step out of the boat into the deep water and trust in God to lead us to safety.

Great Quote! G. K. Chesterton said that only a living thing can swim against the stream. A dead thing can only go with the flow.

The beautiful Holy Family together in the boat, tighly united, sailing away in the boat of the Church. It´s such joy and security living with Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

Anne - Ahhhh, that wonderful word "Trust".....easy to say, hard to do.

Anonymous/Ca - What the heck, I'll add one more "amen". Thanks.

Fr. Larry - Woa...sounds like a political statement if I ever heard one. I love wise.

Ceci - I love your words..."tightly united, sailing away in the boat of the Church." So visual. So true. Thank you.
