Upon Leaving Home.

I left a quiet harbor
in favor of another, I know not where.
But first, there are seas to cross
And storms to brave.
How could I prefer the foreign deeps
to the encircling arms of my bay?
Because some things
Can only be learned at sea.
Yes, my craft is watertight,
I can navigate the unknown,
And Lo, the winds that fill my sails
Blow from home.

This quote refers to missionary work. Some may not want to go because they are going into the unknown. But isn't that the best place to learn?
