So, we’re back!  We cruised, we ate, we slept, we read, and then we ate some more.  By the end of the week, I most certainly rolled off of the Carnival Pride 20 lbs heavier.  I mean, pizza and ice cream 24 hours a day?  How can you not? 

Along with a 24 hour buffet and fun family time, I will miss room service, sunsets, beaches, and relaxing.  Not to mention a 45 minute disco session following every dinner at “Beauties.”  

I was, however, extremely happy to return to strong coffee and dry land. 

And while vacations are wonderful, on some level, it’s always nice to come home and sleep in your own bed.  (Just remind me I said that in about a week).

Many thanks to all of our guest posters from last week!  You all are welcome back any time. 

As I cruised along last week, surrounded by 360 degrees of water,  I felt like a very tiny fish (minus all the pizza) in a HUGE pond.  Just being in the ocean gave me a small glimpse of God’s incredible greatness.  As much as I might want to, I will never be able to fully grasp How majestic and mighty our God truly is.   

To think that the God who made day and night, and the land and the seas, also created each one of us, is sometimes too much to comprehend.  AND not only is He our Father and Creator, but He loves us more than we will ever know. 

That is one eternal truth that I can never get enough of. 

“You alone are the Lord. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and all their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.”
Nehemiah 9:6

“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?” 
Psalm 8: 3-4
