Happy New Year's

"Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, when we arrive safely because we have sailed too close to shore. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly to venture on wider seas where storms will show Your mastery; where losing sight of land we shall find stars. We ask You to push back the horizons of our hopes; we ask You to push in the future in strength, courage, hope, and love."       -- Sir Francis Drake - 16th century English sailor

What a wonderful quote! It's good to hear that this explorer who we admire for his discoveries was a man who worshiped the Lord.
