We don’t drink…not even a little bit!

Is it so hard to believe?
I took Linda to the ER Monday morning with dizziness, nausea, back ache, and chest pains.
The on-call doctor asked a bunch of questions like “how much do you weigh?” Linda answered honestly and, yes, we are both over-weight. Continue reading

Exhibit Good Christian Behavior

I’ve thought about this for over a week.

One afternoon there was a show on the cruise loosely based on the Newlywed Game. But instead of just newlyweds, any age couple could be used, chosen from the audience. Continue reading

A Not So Trivial Pursuit

1) What problem did Leonardo da Vinci, Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison and General George Patton have in common?
2) What was the first living creature ever ejected from a supersonic aircraft?
3) What did Hyman Lipman do in 1858 that made life easier for students? Continue reading

Cruise Observation

Last week, at this time, I was on a cruise. At this time of day (when I’m writing this morning) I had already gone up on deck to see what kind of day it was going to be and see if it was clear enough for a beautiful sunrise.

I could tell you of the food or the dolphin swim excursion. I could start with the Continue reading

My mouth is cruisin’

This will be my last Morning Thought for a few days. Linda and I will be going on a cruise tomorrow and will be somewhere in the Caribbean.
Neither of us have ever been on a cruise before. In fact, the only boats we’ve been on would be a bass boat or a ferry. Continue reading

The Bucket List

Bucket list: a list of things to do before you die, that is, kick the bucket.

Linda has one item on her bucket list – to swim with dolphins. She has wanted to that since she was a little girl, as far back as she can remember.
She will get to cross it off this Saturday! Continue reading

The strength to not fall away

First, let me assure you that I am not perfected but I press on. Let me also assure you that I do not go looking for ways to sin against God but feel I have more strength through Christ to avoid it. We know that God’s children do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them. 1 John 5:18 Continue reading
