Into God's Hands

 A stormy sea -
the water 
looms endless -
cold and frigid;

We leave behind 
forever
those we have loved
things we have known;

All my possessions
in one small suitcase -
 memories 
are easy to pack;

What fate awaits us?

Together we came
with dread -
yet filled  with hope;

Into God's hands -
we placed our dreams
and our lives;

Deliver us all
from evil
Your kingdom come;

We thank You -
for this second chance
our lives anew.

S.S. Walnut Voyage  -  Passenger Reunions

The Walnut passengers have always described themselves as a "family".

They have experienced together the hardship of leaving their homelands, the danger of the voyage to freedom, and the difficulties re-establishing oneself in a new country, with a new language and culture.  

Friendships made onboard have strong bonds.  Several reunions have taken place over the years.  These are but a few:
