I feel like I need to clarify something regarding this post titled "booze cruise." First of all, Vance and I found out that the sunset sail we agreed to go on was affectionately known as the booze cruise after we were already on the ship. I would like to address this line in particular "I definitely recommend trying something like this if you're ever in Hawaii ... basically you're trying to get as much alcohol in your system as you can in 1.5 hours while sailing and watching the sunset." This is what the ship captain told us as we were leaving the dock. These are not my words, but yes, it was a lot of fun and I still recommend it.
I want to clarify that you can take it as a sunset sail (as it is appropriately titled) and enjoy one glass of wine while watching the sunset. You can opt to not drink at all, and enjoy the scenery of Diamond Head if you wish. I do NOT want people to think that I am or was a drunken mess and acting like a belligerent fool. I was not. Vance and I had two drinks on the boat and drove home to our little girl. I do not want readers to think that I support crazy, belligerent, drunken behavior.I want to thank the person who told me how this could come across :)
Allow me to introduce myself,
My name is Lori. I am a CHRISTIAN. I believe that the Lord God is my savior and strength.
HOWEVER. I am a sinner. I am ashamed of this. I am not the kind of girl who gets it right on the first try. I mess up, sin and learn from my mistakes every time. I unfortunately, will NEVER be one of those girls who is perfect, flawless and knows just what to do or what to say in a given situation. I like to think that I am perfectly imperfect. My latest devotion was this: Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perserverance. Perserverance must finish its work so that you can be mature and complete, not lacking anything (James 1:2-4)
I am learning and growing in my walk with the Lord. I am TRYING with all of my heart.
Some of my strengths include not writing people off for any reason. Not judging others and accepting people from all walks of life as my brothers and sisters. Vance often points out that I get hurt a lot for this reason as I take all negative comments to heart and am extremely sensitive. I guess they are strengths and weaknesses at the same time :)
I just want you all to know that I am a work in progress. Thanks for reading!
