The second star to the right...

shines in the night for you.

Ok, I promise that's my last Disney reference.  I have never seen the stars like I've seen them from the middle of the ocean this past week.  It's so hard to describe.  I wish I could take a picture, but obviously that wouldn't work.  When I step outside at night, I feel like I'm in a planetarium.  The sky forms a perfect dome over the ocean.  You don't even have to look up to see the stars; they are literally all around you. 

We've seen shooting stars too!  On Sunday night, there was a meteor shower.  I was only outside for five minutes, and I saw five shooting stars.  (I wish I could've stayed longer, but our report card grades were due the next morning.)  Last night, a few of my friends and I slept outside on the top deck of the ship.  It was cold and windy, but I wasn't going to miss the opportunity to fall asleep beneath the shooting stars.  So amazing.

"He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name."  Psalm 147:4


  1. That must be beautiful!! Would love to see it!
    You make me want to watch a few Disney movies! I have been thinking about the Chipmunks, too!

  2. It is so weird to hear you describe something so different and amazing and then in the next sentence something as normal as "report card grades are due." What a strange world my friend has sailed off to. I love you!!
