When our ship comes in...


When I was a kid and would ask my Dad for something like a new toy or a bike, his response was always the same.
"When our ship comes in, we can get it."
Now we lived close to the Mississippi river and I just knew one of those barges coming and going carried all the things I dreamed of. It was filled with toys, bikes, GI Joes and games. What a dreamland of childhood delight.
Even though I know now that there isn't a magical dream vessel holding all the treasures of my childhood, I do have hope that my ship is just beyond the horizon. I know my ship exists, because my Dad would never lie to me. So, even though I am happy, healthy and abundant now, I still keep my eyes on the horizon. Because I have hope that my ship is coming. What is in your ship?

Hey Sweetness, I could say my ship has world peace, equality, love for all mankind, but I want to be a bit selfish. My ship has my dream job, dream house, dream car and lots of $$$$$. Oh' and a superbowl win for the TITANS next year.

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
