My great grandpa makes remarkable model replica ships. He delicately knots the lines, shapes the hull and sews the sails with his skilled, steady hands. He is 88 and holds a very precious place in my heart. During our short visit in Colorado, we were able to visit for a few short hours—too short. I am so thankful that he let me take some pictures while I was there.
One of my greatest hopes is that one day very soon, he trusts Jesus to be his vessel of grace. Jesus is the only vessel which can sail straight and true through the tempestuous waters of this life, carrying us onward to our desired haven. For as long as I can remember, I have longed for him to know and believe how much God loves him and how much Jesus has done for him.
