Another Friday Rivercruise

About a year ago, Melody and I took a cruise down a part of the St Croix river, from Taylors Falls. A beautiful trip, I blogged about it previously and posted pictures.

I wanted to recreate that feeling of peace I had then, after busy days of preparing for the movers arrival next Monday. So I booked a river cruise on another part of the St Croix river. This time from Stillwater.

The weather forecast was showing rain, but when I arrived there were very little clouds in the sky and it was beautifully sunny. I could pick my spot as I was early… top deck near the front. I missed my chatterbox daughter… but the instant peace of being on the water was there…

There is nothing more calming to me than the sound of the water, with beautiful birds up in the sky. Especially my favourite in this part of the world… the bald eagle. Such majestic soaring over the waters…

It always reminds me of the sermon Geert preaches often.. the song of Moses in Deuteronomy, where he compares the father Eagle to our Heavenly Father. Soaring, watching, feeding, and there to catch us when we fall. Seeing these eagles puts things in perspective. He is in control…

‘When the oceans rise and thunders roar, I will soar with You above the Storm. Father you are King over the flood, I will be still and know You are God…’

Enjoy the weekend, my soul is calm.

    Wat fijn, dat je jezelf verwend hebt met deze cruise. 😎 Dat heet in goed Nederlands: jezelf pamperen 😂😂.
    Maandag, 21 of 29 mei, dat is mij niet duidelijk moet alles klaar staan voor de verhuizers. Pff, wat een klus, want wat moet mee en wat niet. Een gewone verhuizing is gemakkelijker, dan moet simpelweg alles mee. 🤪
    En is je programma al in werking ? Want dat is ook een grote belasting. 🧐
    Ik wens je heel veel sterkte, maar eerst dit heerlijke kalme weekend. Love you. 😘
