O God, your fondest feelings must be reserved for the leastpretentious and most genuine of us. Sailors must be your favorites. Someof us haven't found the virtues of humility, soft spoken or gentleness.Some of us tend to lead with our jaw and seem more ready to fight thanswitch. After long days at sea, you can tell your sailors by their redeyes and grubbiness, but their wills match their strong backs, and theirrespect and concern for each other is a wondrous thing. They are the saltof the deck--and their saltiness is honest and open. We are grateful forthem as you love them especially, bless each one on _____________, we askthis in your name. Amen.
