I’ve been away from a couple of weeks on a much-anticipated cruise to the Mexican Caribbean with Kelly. It was wonderful to have time alone together and see and experience new places where the sun is warm and bright, especially during this wet and dreary time of year on the Oregon Coast. As always, our adventures provided new material for my blog on epiphanies in this life of faith. I hope you will come along on this mini-series of photos, stories, and spiritual insights from our trip. 
Check back soon for part one: “Houston – Art, Animals, and Atrocities.”
