On our Way

Updated on August 12, 2010

This October I will celebrate my 30th wedding anniversary with my wife. She's been so good to me and for me over the years. She's never asked anything for herself, but has mentioned frequently how much she would like to see Alaska. I'm certainly not complaining, but a trip to Alaska would financially be impossible for us. Still, for years I prayed that God would somehow grant her request.

We'll be leaving this Saturday. The answer to my prayer came through my daughter and her husband. They decided to send us both to Alaska for a vacation to celebrate our 30 years together. I would have never thought something like this could happen. I guess my faith really is rather weak, but I praise God for an early anniversary gift.

We are now in the process of packing, etc. I may not be writing a lot over the next two weeks, but I will have a 17 hour plane trip to do some things. Hopefully, I'll get back to Part 5 of my series Is the Bible Really the Word of God? soon.

To all of you--have a wonderful two weeks. See ya soon.

      It was a great experience and I would definitely do it again. It was so nice just to relax period, but in all that beauty, I really lost myself. God is so good.

      Hi Bill... I must have missed this one the prelude to the venture you had. What a blessing your family are to do this for you. When children do such things I always am reminded of the teaching and love that must have been in your home all those years... so glad you two had a great time.

      Hugs and Blessings

      TJ, it was absolutely beautiful. You can see God around every corner. If you haven't been there, try to go. The creation of the Creator is magnificent.

      Congratulations, though it is a bit early! Love to hear of happily married couples. May your love never cease but continue to flourish.

      I was on a cruise to Alaska from Vancouver a couple of years ago, and the scenery was superb. I was not that keen in the trip at the beginning, but being there was an adventure for me. The trip was so different from my other cruises. There were places in Alaska not accessible on land, but by boat or air. It is so different from the other metropolis. Your wife must have like natural surroundings. Enjoy yourself and thank God for a nice trip.
