Scripture put to heart

"I can't even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!"

Psalm 139:18 (NLT)

Not only is He with us -- at all times -- our God sings over us. As Zephaniah 3:17 says, ". . He will rejoice over you with singing."

He is such an awesome God!

Change of posting plans

On this trip, we are flying on passes with an airline employee. That means you never know exactly when you are flying or to where you will fly. So, we had to leave unexpectedly, therefore, I am not be able to finish the day-by-day posting as I planned.

I will be posting again after we get back with pictures ;)

Bon Voyage!

We are going on a cruise! Are you ready to come along?

Today we are in Harwich, England. As soon as we get to the dock we will tag our luggage and go check in. Once we get on board we go to our rooms to get rid of our carry-on luggage (the ones we have been physically attached to since Monday!).

Now it's time to look around the ship and get our bearings (port, starboard, aft, forward, elevators, etc.). We are on "Jewell of the Seas", a mega ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet.

Let's go look around the ship, shall we?

First stop, our room. No matter the size, they are quite comfortable.

This is the theater. It has a least one balcony and can be accessed from two different floors. The entertainment on Royal Caribbean is awesome. There are numerous guest entertainers in the line-up, plus RC has their own dancers and amazing band aboard all the ships.

This is the centrum. It is the business hub of the ship. There's customer service, and shopping, tour information, booking, and shopping, the daily newspapers, and shopping, photography, and shopping. I think you get the idea. The voyager fleets have shopping malls with sidewalk cafes! Centrums are usually open for 3 - 4 stories with glass elevators, and beautiful.

Another view of the centrum.

This is the formal dining room where we will eat each evening. This one is two stories (voyage fleets are three stories).

The indoor pool or solarium. Gorgeous, isn't it?

The outdoor pool. There are hot tubs near the outdoor and indoor pool.

Basketball court and/or tennis.
This ship also has golf and rock climbing.

And for the kids and kids-at-heart, there's a waterslide!

This is an interesting feature in one of the lounges -- a car. Depending upon their size, the lounges are used for entertainment, small shows and contests, classes and seminars, church services -- not just for drinking.

Well, did you like your tour? It's hard to believe how huge these vessels are. They are actually floating cities. There is many things to do. The spa are wonderful. The exercise gyms are awesome.
Thanks for joining me on today's tour. Come back tomorrow because there will be more to share.

Good Morning, London!

That's right, we're in London, England today!

We landed at Heathrow Airport this morning. Now it's time to catch a train then make a transfer by taxi to catch another train. Then another taxi to our hotel.

We are not staying in London. We are forturnate enough to have been there before. It's a facinating city -- and huge! Instead, we are traveling to our hotel near Harwich. So let's keep up with our luggage begin today's short journey (about 2 hours).

See you there!


Scripture put to heart

This is verse 17 of our LPM (Living Proof Ministries - Beth Moore)
scripture challenge:

"How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!"

Psalm 139:17 (NLT)

This verse certainly speaks for itself. To know that the God of this universe thinks about me and you -- takes my breath away and causes me to be speechless . . . .

for a while :)
