Red Light

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

I am proud that I am a bit naive about life.  I do know what’s out there, but I don’t have to think about it or embrace it.

Take the Red Light district…really?

And I have to inhale your second hand weed smoke?

The urinals on the street corners, now that’s a treat!

Ah Amsterdam. Let’s get to the boat and get underway!

…sorry, you can’t take pictures in the red light district

Rivers Of Europe 2012 Victory Jubilee

Greetings from Amsterdam, a beautiful country with so much history, but a sad place as all the churches (the big national treasure ones) are being used for secular reasons now.They aren’t even open to view. They have evolved not to need God. But God will show us His glory and He knows He can use us on this cruise.

We saw Anne Frank’s house, the Van Gogh museum and the Heineken Experience and did the all day pass on the tram (our own version of Hop-on-Hop-off bus, and cheaper). Oh yeah, and the Red Light district.

The river cruise we are about to embark on is my CELEBRATION cruise! Watch out world! It looks like we are the youngest on board, cept for the crew. And our Chinese waiter at lunch was from Escondido!

My heart and prayers are with you all (Isnt it great that God’s portable!). Miss you all, but having a really awesome time.

Morals, More Or Less

Amsterdam claims to be one of the free-est cities in the world. Let’s see, I’ve seen closed- down churches, a gay-tourist info kiosk, hemp stores, a creative condom shop, drinking legal at 16, and living room windows with naked ladies sitting in front of them, with red lights on the porch; a legal profession that’s even unionized!

Mind you, the town is very pretty, and easy to navigate, and a very busy place. It seems like every young person in Europe wants to come here for summer vacation. But if everybody can do anything they want, what happens to a culture that doesn’t stand for anything?
