A DAY OF GLACIERS AND GOD’S PROMISES
I wasn’t sure I’d get to post again before our return….but after a day like today, making time to write about it and share pictures is an absolute must! Just when we think the day before can’t possibly be outdone with wonder and amazement, it is! Each day bringing with it inspiration that reaches us in places and ways we never dreamed possible.
Today we cruised into Resurrection Bay and the Gulf of Alaska, seeing another grand canvas of God’s handiwork around The Harding Icefield, home to Aialik Glacier (a tidewater glacier) and Bear Glacier (a valley glacier). We marveled at wildlife and even got to see and “hear” a glacier calving (wow, just wow).
5 hours of grand and breathtaking beauty, meeting new people (we met another couple from Conshohocken, PA who was also there celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary) and allowing just another piece of this place to find a special place in our hearts.
As we headed back to port, it began to rain a little—but no one seemed to even mind. As Rick and I reflected on 25 years together, and our promise of FOREVER to each other, God gave us this.
|To the next 25 years…..God’s gift, A promise!|
Being one of only two people on board to capture this on camera, we received it as God’s blessing and promise to us as we look to the next 25 years. Sometimes you find the most unexpected gifts, in the most unexpected places.
As evening drew near, we warmed our hearts by the fire and savored the contentment in our souls.
Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all. 1 Chronicles 29:11
ALASKA……you’ve been so good to us!
I still have a few treasures tucked away for Saturday…..stay tuned.
