Unfortunately when I don't regularly post, the days blur into months and even with the catalog of pictures I've taken, the moments become a haze and I forget lot of details. This is precisely why I blog, because of my poor memory, I need to physically journal "these days of our lives" or they will be jumbled in an embarrassingly short amount of time! So, I will break into the most recent happenings, and record the freshest of memories! :) Enter my two little hula boys...
Vacation would be all too perfect if the sun always shined, the ocean always blue, and each morning we woke well rested! We'd probably just take it all for granted, but that wasn't the case when the smallest of the smalls woke up our second morning there sounding like a seal that was very angry! Croup boy was not amused with the noise coming from his throat either. At home, I usually bundle them up and take them out into the cold, moist winter air when they make the first bark of the dreadful sound. The air in Hawaii at 4:00 a.m. was neither moist nor cold, which is usually a wonderful thing! :) I was so torn between enjoying the wonderful warm breeze coming off the ocean or tending to the angry seal screaming in my arms! Eventually he calmed down enough to enjoy the early morning sounds of the ocean, and we were able to get his barking under control.
The sun did shine beautifully everyday, the ocean was brilliant blue each morning, we saw the display of magnificent waves crash in a continual motion upon the coastline, we tasted too many different kinds of delicious locally grown coffee, we felt the warm surf wash up over and slowly return back again with our feet, we witnessed the wonders of creation displayed by volcano, rain forest, and sea life...and we marveled that we serve the ONE who created it ALL!
But even in sickness and restless nights...or cloud filled skies or desolate lands, this ONE who creates is worthy of glory, and reason to marvel! As constant as the continual break of one wave followed by another, the same can be expected of HIS love for us! Now that is reason to marvel!
