The Cruise ~ Day Seven~ Wilma!

We’ve been cuttin up and actin a fool for most of this trip, but lest anyone get the wrong idea, the main purpose of this cruise is to celebrate the two lovely ladies in this picture.

Two cruisin sisters!

Two cruisin sisters!

Mom/Wilma—the birthday gal—is the redhead, and the other beauty is her sister, my Aunt Doris. Ada, their other sister couldn’t join us for the cruise, and it sure woulda been nice had she been able to be with us. Read the rest of this entry »

The Cruise ~ Day Six ~ Did We Get Hair Yet?

I’ve traveled extensively, but only in the U.S., and as any of you who’ve wandered our great land know, there are times when the locals are hard to understand. They tok funny ya know. Lot’s of people on this big boat are from Texas, but I understand them quite easily, and it’s a safe bet you don’t have to ask a person where he/she is from, but rather, what part of Texas are they from.

The Cruise ~ Day Four ~ Without A Trace

We haven’t seen land since Sunday, and though I’ve always known how large the Gulf of Mexico is, it’s still fascinating. I can’t imagine how the first sailors and travelers must have felt as they traversed the Atlantic in vessels not much larger than the lifeboats on this enormous ship. Read the rest of this entry »

Shelter From the Storms ~ November 20

Shelter From the Storms… I like it!

I believe the secret place of the Most High is the bosom of God. When we place God at the top of our priority list and stay close to Him, we are dwelling in the shelter of His love, and there we will find peace.

It all sounds so simple and yet we struggle daily to put it into practice. I often find myself worrying and fretting over mostly trivial things, but as I continue to learn about God and His promises, those times are becoming fewer. And when they come, I’m able to allow His words to comfort me and cause me to rest in His shadow.

I envision the cool shade cast by a sheer mountain wall on a hot spring afternoon. I can almost hear the sounds; a creek burbling, birds singing, the sound of God gently whispering, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

His shelter

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1
