The Lord is my pilot, I shall not drift.
He guides me across the dark waters.
He steers me through deep channels.
He keeps my log.
Yea, though I sail ‘mid the thunders
and tempest of life,
I shall dread no anger, for He is with me;
His love and His care, shelter me.
He prepares a quiet harbor before me.
He anoints the waves with oil
My ship rides calmly.
Surely sunlight and starlight
shall guide me on the voyage I take,
And I will rest in the heaven’s port forever.

hard to believe that I almost drowned the last time I was at this pier. it was very different lake conditions then, nothing like the flat calm water on this day in the late summer of 2014.

Curtains fall, fashions fade, an endless summer over
Another tide to launch an autumn moon over the dunes

Thursday at camp seemed promising for our last chance to sail. all morning, I could feel a bit of a breeze as I walked around camp to the various morning activities. after lunch and watching son #2 play in a 3-on-3 soccer tournament, we headed down to the beach to try sailing. I rigged the Minifish up and set off my oldest son in the Mini. I had my 9-yr old join me in the Sunfish.
the wind must’ve been playing tricks on us, though, because it was very light and shifty out in the water. my oldest son in the Minifish just laid right down in the cockpit and drifted along.
