The place to find Everything Barrett. As our family grows up this little spot is a place we can connect as each of our dreams, passions, and day to day life is chronicled. Where ministry meets ranching meets college life meets the hubub of a Christian, set-apart family. Our hope is to be an encouragement to each other...and our readers.
Today we get to celebrate the man who sailed the ocean blue in 1492.
Some of his own words:
"The great success of this enterprise is not to be ascribed to my own merits, but to the holy Catholic faith and the piety of our Sovereigns, the Lord often granting to men what they never imagine themselves capable of effecting, as he is accustomed to hear the prayers of his servants and those who love his commandments, even in that which appears impossible; in this manner has it happened to me who have succeeded in an undertaking never before accomplished by man. For although some persons have written or spoken of the existence of these islands, they have all rested their assertions upon conjecture, no one having ever affirmed that he saw them, on which account their existence has been deemed fabulous."
