Text:

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength, and I stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky come down to meet and mingle with each other. Then someone at my side says, "There! She's gone!" Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large in the mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side, and just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of her destination. Her diminished size is in me, and not in her. And just at that moment, when someone at my side says, "There! she's gone!" there are other eyes that are watching for her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!"

Artist’s Comments:

Both heaven and the seashore are two of my favorite places (but thus far I have been to only one). I love the sun and the surf, and I long for the eternal sunshine and waves of love that await us on the other side of this life.
