Being on a cruise has its ups and downs, literally. At least we were on a 'smooth' one so the ups weren't that different from the downs. However eating was never a downer. We ate in the same dining room night after night so that we would get to know the servers and it paid off, as you can see. Alex was our head waiter and he certainly did take good care of us. Here we are at 'our' table. And of course I had to capture the close attention Denny was getting .

It is so good to be served, but it is also important to learn to serve others. Christ gave us the example while on earth. And in his scripture:

"... Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all." Mark 9:35

Enjoy the good things God's creation offers, but keep all things in perspective. God and his purposes must come first and you are to love others as much as yourself.
Service is not an option.

If anyone of you has been contemplating running for office, I applaud you. If you
can serve our country and honor it, serving sacrificially with love in your heart for the United States of America and its citizens, then for the sake of all of us, do it!
