We’ve just completed a four-night Disney Cruise with all the kids and grandkids. It was during this cruise that I realized that I had personally progressed to the point of once again being an active participant in the life of the family. Having come through a very difficult time, there was a period of withdrawal and loss of confidence. I have been so incredibly blessed!
My great wife has been reading Joyce Meyers’ Approval Addiction which has given us the opportunity to talk of where we have anchored our faith and search for approval. The cruise gave us additional time to reflect on the source of our faith and values. Thankfully, God has made Himself known to us each step of the way and we’ve continued to look to Him to provide confirmation and affirmation. Having said that, I recognize that there can be and have been extended times of seeming silence. On the other side of those silent times, we’ve looked back to see that God has been at work in so many ways. Our faith is much stronger today than it has ever been in our lives and we are confident that God is doing a significant work in our lives and in the life of our church.
Anyone looking for fun for the whole family should consider a Disney Cruise. They have found a way to provide an exciting environment for kids, young people and grandparents. It is truly a thing of beauty to see it come together with all age groups participating.
That’s it for now. More later.
