Capt. Scott facilitated a spectacular adventure for all of us childhood friends today! Our destination was Anclote Key!
It was a beautiful day to be on the water!
“All about us, in earth and air, wherever the eye or ear can reach, there is a power ever-breathing itself forth in signs, now in a daisy, now in a wind-waft, a cloud, a sunset; a power that holds constant and sweetest relation with the dark and silent world within us. The same God who is within us and upon whose trees we are the buds, if not yet the flowers, also is all about us, inside, the Spirit; outside, the Word. And the two are ever trying to meet in us; and when they meet, then the sign without, and the longing within become one light, and the man no more walketh in darkness, but knoweth wither he is goeth” (Thomas Wingfold, Curate, Ch.82) George Macdonald
The eldest of the Miller brothers was in town and it was his visit that precipitated the adventure. On the boat were Capt. Scott, the Miller brothers, the younger of the miller brothers was accompanied by his two sons and then there was my brother and I!
You and I are the offspring of God. The one and only Creator of all that there is. In Him alone is love and only through a return to Him in complete surrender do we have fellowship with each other! This fellowship is good and true and is a shadow of the fellowship ahead of us in the kingdom to come.
I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ's gift. Ephesians 4:1-7 ESV
