we're going on a cruise to "nowhere" tomorrow - the ship sails out into the ocean for a day, and then turns around and comes right back! the appeal is that it is over the weekend, so you don't have to take vacation days to go.
mike and i have neither been on a cruise before, so we are SOO excited!!!!! especially sweet because, coincidentally, it is the year anniversary of our engagement! and for different reasons (midterms, work challenges, random extra splashes of physical/emotional tiredness), we are grateful for the timing of being away together this weekend. i think i must be the luckiest girl in the whole world, to get to be married to my mike. i literally thank God for you constantly, my love.
but! we haven't left yet, so these verses are encouraging me today, as different things are tempting me to impatience and frustration:
"...forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, i press on toward the goal...our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like His glorious body, by the power that enables Him even to subject all things to Himself."
