Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

seven days on the high seas!

Thank you for all your good wishes! We had a wonderful trip...and everything went according to plan...thank goodness!! :-) The weather was perfect, though warmer than I expected. The ship was amazing...and huge...4200 passengers, 1400 crew members! The food was abundant, varied and delicious. The entertainment was excellent and the service...well, if you've ever been on a cruise, you know they treat you royally!

We met people from all over and heard every accent you can imagine. Funniest thing, while we were in line waiting to enter the terminal to board the ship, we met a couple from our own city! A divine appt I think considering the number of people there and that we were 6 hours from home. We visited several times during the week. It may be the beginning of a new friendship!

On Coco Cay, Royal Caribbean's private island, Hubby enjoyed snorkeling and I enjoyed my lounge chair under a palm tree! :-) We took island tours on St Thomas and St Marten...they are beautiful places with interesting histories.

I have lots of pictures, but I haven't had a chance to sort them. I will share one. This is the beach closest to Front Street on St Marten. We had lunch in a little beachside cafe and had this shot taken with our ship, Freedom of the Seas, in the background.

I will share more in the days to come. I know many of you prayed for us and I am grateful...
we really did have a lovely week!


  1. So glad you had a wonderful time on your cruise ... and glad that you are back safe and sound.

    Sounds like you visited the same ports of call that we did when we sailed on Freedom of the Seas back in January. We did island tours of St. Maarten and St. Thomas, too. I still can't believe how clear the water was as we sailed into St. Thomas. So beautiful.

  2. Glad you two had a wonderful trip. We have been on a 10 day trip also.... Ours wasn't a cruise --but we did have a great time.

    Can't wait to see more photos.

  3. welcome home sounds like a fun trip

  4. Good news of your trip with lovely weather. Glad you got away and had a nice time.

  5. So happy to see you finally got on that ship! Sounds like a wonderful time! I'm dreaming.

  6. Welcome home! Glad all went well...and looking forward to hearing all about it.
