Last week we went on an “almost post-Covid” cruise to Alaska. There were still testings and protocols to pass, but the cruise business is back. What made the week truly spectacular was going with our best friends from college. We had a great time exploring new places and reflecting. We were young when we first met. My wife and our friends were fresh from high school graduations in Texas and Kentucky. I was older and wiser by a year or two.
.And now that we have re-converged in the late years of our journey we are overwhelmed with gratitude for God’s goodness and grace. We are more content than we were in our youth. We are still ambitious to do good and to bless others, but we know we are blessed beyond measure in ways we could have never imagined. Only God could do such a thing.
