Our Pastor recently returned from a week long cruise to Jamaica. She had been looking forward to the trip because the two of us just went through the Easter season as well as she had been absolutely working absolutely long sevenths. Now, a Pastor’s task is never absolutely done, but, the two of us were all blissful to see that she was taking some time for herself. She was able to escape the snow as well as ice in our section as well as head south to prefer some sand as well as surf. Well, not so much sand I guess. When she returned the two of us were distraught to hear all about her adventures. Her sermon that first week was all about expectations. She told a story about what she had expected from the cruise ship as well as what the reality really was, then she had expected to see people get togethering as well as drinking the entire time. It was an adult only cruise as well as she figured that, without the teenagers, people would want to get together all afternoon as well as evening. What she encountered was the opposite. Most of the passengers just wanted to kick back, relax, as well as not worry about anything. They spent time by the pool or at a show as well as absolutely got a option to talk to others. She had also expected the ship to have the best Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system that money could buy because they would be sailing in the tepid sunlight all afternoon. That too was the opposite. The ships Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system barely worked as well as she found herself dripping with sweat through much of the evening while trying to sleep. She even spent some of the time sleeping on a deck chair just to take in the cooler air. She said that the lesson she l received was that you should never expect that something is what it is. You should regularly system for the unexpected.
