If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) lately, you'll know that my friend and I went on a cruise. Plus, you'll already have read that we visited Grand Cayman Island.
The other place we visited on the cruise, was... Cozumel, Mexico!
I feel I should let you know that when my now deceased husband Gordon was alive, we had visited Cozumel, Mexico a couple of times.
The first time we arrived on a cruise, we went ashore.
A fairly new shopping area had been built. There were only a few stores, that were not next to each other. They were a fair distance apart. But, we enjoyed it!
The second time we arrived there, we and another couple paid to have a taxi drive us around the area. We saw some beautiful places... including beaches!
However, when my friend and I arrived on the cruise we were on, everything seemed very different!
When we went ashore, we walked a very long walkway. This led us into a building that contained duty-free products.
It was shocking to me, to walk through there!
Why? Because it was another extremely long place to walk. And, it was filled with so many people, it was hard to get through!
We did get through. Then, we went through customs and found ourselves in the shopping area.
Was it the same as when Gordon and I had been there in the past? Absolutely, not!
There were so many shops, restaurants and other companies there, that it seemed like a hundred places... or more!
My goodness! It wasn't just shocking to me. It kept us busy shopping!
We left that area and thought about going into town.
But, we stopped and sat for a few minutes before we were going to move on. Then, my friend suggested that we truly didn't need to do any travelling in town, and wanted to return onto the ship.
We did, even though I truly didn't want to go back, yet. It had been my desire to go and look around, together.
Even so, I agreed to do what my friend wanted, because I wanted to be loving to her.
Much like we read, in Hebrews 10:24, "And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:"
Yes, we need to consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works.
Loving my friend, we got aboard the ship and relaxed, for a while.
It truly touches my heart to spend time with someone I care for. So, I felt blessed.
And, thanked our Lord!
Until next time...
