I was asking Papa, why we have to go through all the things we do?
Of course, being the wise counselor He is, He asked me a question right back ... "Amy, What make a good Sea Captain?" "Hmmmm?" I pondered. He continued, "What makes a great sea captain, is that he is experienced in the ways of the Sea." Simple answer, yet always profound, I thought.
Think about it...
Papa continued... Experience, in the in's and outs of Sea Life, embracing the unknowns through the joy of discovery! One gains understanding all along the way, as they map out better routes from their adventurous voyage.
