Our St. Maarten Honeymoon, Part One

(Above pictures via)

We stayed at the Divi Little Bay Resort in St. Maarten.  The resort is on a Peninsula, with the ocean on one side and a bay on the other.  The views were absolutely breathtaking.  Our room was amazing.  We had a huge bed, a full kitchen, living room, shower, and hot tub with changing underwater lights and a music system, and two private balconies overlooking the ocean.  We were very lucky because we would not have been able to afford such a luxurious honeymoon, but my parents let us use one of their timeshare weeks to get the hotel, and his parents gave us honeymoon cash as a wedding gift.  It was the best week ever.  =)     

We pretty much just stayed in the room our first full day in St. Maarten.  For dinner that night, we went downtown to discover that most of the shops and restaurants were closed.  At first we were disappointed, but we later learned that most businesses only opened when cruise ships were in port.  Some places were still open, so we were able to get some much needed food and it felt like we had the island to ourselves.    

Obviously, I HAD to tie a knot in the cherry stem.  ;)

Do you know what hurts so very much? It's love. Love is the strongest force in the world, and when it is blocked that means pain. There are two things we can do when this happens. We can kill that love so that it stops hurting. But then of course part of us dies, too. Or we can ask God to open up another route for that love to travel.
