Gods Amazing Blessings

Tonight the sunset was absolutely spectacular....alternating waves of pinks and blues, deepening to gold with tiny sliver of crescent moon hanging above the sun. However, that is getting a little ahead of things ...

We begin today early, in the dark, waiting for the sun, and as we start raising the anchor, we discover that we need not have worried whether we would hold in the big blow, as it took us quite a bit of maneuvering to actually break the anchor out of the bottom. The anchor was WELL buried! But finally, up she came and we headed out. The seas were quite bumpy and prevented Jim from putting his contacts in, but eventually settled down nicely, and we were able to sail a good course to our next stop. Jim decided to stay to windward of Montserrat, the active volcano, and that seemed an especially prudent idea as the closer we got to it the clearer we could see the smoke and steam pouring from the amazing sight. After navigating thru multiple streams of net floats off the north side of Montserrat, we cleared Redondo rock and steered for Nevis, finally arriving at around 4pm.

And then we got to relax and enjoy seeing Mt Nevis actually not covered in clouds, the myriad of twinkling lights covering St. Kitts like a sparkling blanket and watch the absolutely spectacular sunset. We start and finish each day in prayer, and continually thank God for the amazing life we are able to live, and ask Him for wisdom, direction and protection. This he provides for us in a hundred little ways, seeing the outhaul BEFORE it fails, identifying the leak, and keeping it contained, identifying the oil issue and being able to fix it in a day, helping us see and avoid net floats (often two-liter bottles tied with line), arriving in safe harbor daily, to name just a few. We are grateful that we are able to enjoy Gods Amazing Blessings.
