In our lives we look for different ways to survive, and we want to find all kinds of ports.
Our life is like a ship that sails over the ocean, tides and heads over the ocean, heading for the safe harbour.
Shoals occur, storms and squalls – sometimes sharp rocks.
There are deep but also shallow waters where the wind hits our ship back and forth.
During storms and showers the man, at his helm, manages the ship and prays to leave everything behind. To leave it all from any oppression he entrusts life to God.
Going through a lot of storms, we are so glad when we can find a place with stiller waters, or being led to the quiet port, lighthouse illuminated.
Then we can remember the words of Boleslaw of Prussia
“An experienced sailor does not fight
with electricity or wind, but it allows them to float
in its direction. “
