Carnival Horizon Day by Day

A compilation of the posts from our June vacation 2018. Slayer Day 2018 June 9, 2018 June 9th is finally here and though I was encouraged to sleep in for what will no doubt be a late night, I was still up at 5:30. We’ll head to Pittsburgh in a couple hours for lunch and…

“What happened?”

Making the decision to think for yourself among Christians ensures one inevitable thing. You’ll be asked by someone, “Awww, what happened?” The assumption perhaps being along the lines that an argument over cleaning dishes at a church potluck dinner upset you enough to just throw up your hands to the whole thing. Or that such…

So, about this higher power…

At least in my part of the world, which is admittedly old school to a fault, first investigations into sobriety revolve around and are entirely dependent on God. And while the term higher power might be more accepted in some places, in West Virginia its God and no one else. And being a Christian when…

Letter of Encouragement by Seth Andrews

Georgia/Florida Line 11/18/2017

I was up at 6 putting a dent in the coffee and fruit available at the hotel, walking along the river at sunrise and…

The Road South 11/17/2017

New River Gorge Bridge, Fayetteville, WV After much debate, planning and research, our departure changed from early Friday to early Saturday to mid-day Friday and finally as of a couple days ago, back to early Friday. I’m very thankful it worked out that way as we were able to take our time rather than just…

New York City June 2nd, 2017

Wow, what a day today has been. Our most enjoyable day in New York in a long time. After breakfast at the hotel we hit the subway for Central Park and the Zoo. Its a tiny zoo and the variety of animals isn’t the greatest but the setting is unbeatable in my opinion. I’m sure…

New York City June 1, 2017

Trip from home was uneventful. Didn’t make very good time due to some construction we came across which probably knocked us back an hour getting to the city. Once through the Holland Tunnel we tried to find a little place on Canal St. that Steph had seen on TV. But we had no luck. So…
