Where the world comes to study the Bible

Anticipation

When Lymann Abott wrote the following he was 80 years old:

I enjoy my home, my friends, my life. I shall be sorry to part from them. But I have always stood in the bow looking forward with hopeful anticipation. When the time comes for me to put out to sea, I think I shall still be standing in the bow and looking forward with eager interest and glad hopefulness to the new world to which the unknown voyage will take me.

A. Blackwood, The Funeral, p. 24
