I just looked through my blog drafts and realized I never finished posting pictures from our recent cruise. What a special, delightful, refreshing time it was for our family. We're so grateful for this opportunity! It was such a precious joy to meet some of you, our blog readers. To marvel at the Lord's awesome handiwork around us. And to lift our voices in joyful song each evening. The whole week was truly remarkable.
Here are the final pictures from our week:
Ice cream smiles.
And do I see a bit of sunburn on those faces?!
We helped lead a morning of children's ministry.
Drama and music are a powerful way of sharing Biblical truth with children.
We spent a day a Key West, Florida.
Of course, we had to taste their famous key lime pie!
The architecture and foliage was so unique and tropical.
Can you guess where we are?!
We found a coconut vender and bought a couple fresh coconuts from her. She drilled a hole in the coconut for us to drink the coconut milk, but had us crack them open ourselves. Andrew made it look easy.
Mmmmmm! Most of us liked the mild coconut flavor. Refreshing on a hot day!
And some of us found some less-healthy local treats.
A piece of our home state!
Each night was such a special time with our tour group. There were several ministry teams on board and every evenings we heard from most of them. We sang each night and had such an amazing time of worship and encouragement. The evenings flew so quickly!
At the end of the evening, most of the teams would gather on stage for some group music and sing-alongs.
Our whole crew.
As a side note, are you looking for a special marriage-get-away?
Or perhaps a unique family trip?
Stay tuned for an upcoming announcement!
"He has made His wonderful works to be remembered:
the Lord is gracious and full of compassion."
