One spectacle grander
“There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.” ― Victor Hugo
Jeff and I love to travel, and cruising has become our favorite kind of vacation. Needless to say, we haven’t been able to take a cruise for some time, and we have no idea when we will be able to go to sea again. Nevertheless, we still dream and talk of taking another cruise, and hope it won’t be too long before we are able to set sail.
Meanwhile, Hugo’s quote reminds me that I’ve had a front row seat to a spectacle grander than the sky or sea this year; I have seen Jeff fight through and survive one crisis after another, giving me the most intimate glimpse of the interior of his soul that I have ever seen. Although neither of us chose this particular part of our journey together, and it has been full of scary risks, suffering and exhaustion, it also has been a beautiful testimony to his strong foundation of faith, the power of prayers from so many who care about us, and his courage and determination to stay with Matt and me as long as he can.
I hope this year is full of wonderful sights for you to enjoy, whether at home or abroad. Amid all the sights of land, sea and sky, I hope you will keep an eye out for those surpassingly grand views of the many beautiful souls whose paths will cross yours. Bon Voyage!
