I’m Longing for a Holiday at Sea. Those are my daughters you see above, enjoying a holiday at sea. I also have two dogs. My dear husband passed away nearly 3 years ago.
Why you see 2017 Day 1, Day 2, etc., at the start of each post
I committed this year to blog daily on the passages of Scripture I’m reading in my One-Year Bible (ESV). I did this not so much to inform you, dear reader, but to hold myself accountable to stay in the Bible, to have daily devotions. The reason for 2017? This is my second go round of daily blogging. I did this once before in 2012 and it changed my life – in the middle of the year, Jesus showed up in a big way: he led me to the current ministry position I’m in – my life’s calling. (I started the last effort with a post entitled “Jesus Hung Up“) Boy, did God pick up the phone in 2012. So, I’m excited to see what Jesus does this year!
What this blog is about in general – what’s the Holiday at Sea?
Regarding this blog in general, it’s been about my spiritual walk (which is why I keep it anon, so I can say whatever I want about whomever!). It’s about what I’m learning in pursuit of the Holiday at Sea. This CS Lewis quote sheds light on the blog title:
… it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires, not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.
