Not on the road again!

However, I have been travelling again! Went on a cruise to Cozumel. This is a pic on the return trip. A bit cloudy and the water a bit rough.

I have never been on a cruise before. I was always too scared to try as I have pretty severe motion sickness. To my pleasure I didn't really get seasick. I was plagued by the "green apple quickstep". Who in their right mind goes to Mexico and doesn't take either pepto-bismal or immodium! I actually had to buy it there!

I went with my younger dau and a great friend . We had a splendid time. I truly enjoyed the snorkeling & shopping! I spent entirely too much money!

We went with a faith based group, called 'Cruise Chics'-they had planned activities. We had 2 singing groups- "Babby Mason & Beloved" There was also a speaker, Shelly Hendrix. So we had plenty to do, with that and all the ship activities. Next year Oct 13-17 will be the next cruise and will be going to Western Caribbean- if anyone is interested let me know.

Now I am all rested and hit the deck running when I came home. It often amazes me what I do in a week. I don't know how I fit it all in when I was working full time!

His Will?!

Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

I have really been pondering this of late. What shall I do, where should I be? Guess I am a bit down? Why you ask? well it may have something to do with the weather change? or maybe my pulse which has been too low? or my feeling just a bit "off"?

With that in mind maybe one of you can interpret a dream I had the other day. It was a doozy.

To begin with it was kinda fun and I really hated to awaken, but life proceeds. Nothing gory.

There was this disembodied head that was floating around. Don't know who the lady was but she had long dark flowing hair. I was with most of my family brothers, sister , daughters etc, We were taking a trip, I think it was by bus., I remember the driver distinctly, he was an gentle older man.

At any rate, Dan was very worried about this lady with no body. He says, " Grandma, Why doesn't she have a body, and just float like that". Of course I couldn't answer. He says, " Grandma I'm gonna find her body so she doesn't have to float around like that". Sure enough later in the dream he finds a body and somehow attaches it and then we all went floating around. It was so much fun.

How Can it BE?

Yes of course, that's The Dan Man with his hand in the air. He is one spunky kiddo, and I love every bit of him. He is so charismatic and animated. He reminds me so much of myself and his momma at this age. Absolutely nothing goes by him without some comment or commentary.
This was at the end of Vacation Bible School I took him to in NJ this summer. They had quite a party afterward. Including confetti.
He went around and picked some up and asked me to put in my pocket for later. Of course I told him at first I didn't want to put into MY pocket, but with a bit of pleading I acquiesced. On the way home from the event, he asked for the confetti back. With guarded thoughts I did give it to him in my car, and of course told him NOT to throw it in my car. He assured me he wouldn't, then asked for POPPIES ashes we had in the car. Can you imagine what was going through my head at this point. (O we have a small mason jar of ashes in the car since the kiddos wanted to disperse some on our vaca)!
Later, I asked him what he did with that confetti. Well he put it in the ashes container. "Grandmom, Poppie needs them to play with, doesn't he!", was his reply. What could this Granny say to that. So now Poppie has confetti to play with in his ashes!
