Maui, Hawaii: The Third Leg is Complete

We have departed Maui and have flown to the Big Island of Hawaii.

To many who visit Hawaii for the first time, on a nice vacation or honeymoon, Maui is the go to island. To us, Maui is the “odd” island of the Hawaiian archipelago. We’ve been here twice before so we have had some time to form this opinion, and this last stint did little to change it.

“I Have a Right To Go to Work…”

My last personal post was an evaluation of the changes I did or did not go through in the past few years. It was a reflection of my spiritual growth as I flipped through the pages of my journal, exposing the truths I held and my effectiveness in following them.

That was back in October and I’ve been trying to grab hold of what was revealed to me since then. Shortly after we left for Hawaii to spend our 6 months US-stay here instead of the mainland. This was to be a time “off the road”, allowing my mind to be clear of the challenges and distractions of everyday trailer-travel. To be honest, I was hoping to get some clarity regarding the future here as well, as if the change in location would reveal it.

Oahu, Hawaii: The Second Leg is Complete

We’ve have spent Christmas and New Year on the most popular and most populated island of Hawaii called Oahu. You know the one with Honolulu, Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor and the Royal Hawaiian Hotel?
In the way Kauai was the island for us to re-familiarize ourselves with Hawaii and a place for us to rekindle our love for our favourite isle, Oahu was to be the island of activities.

Kauai, Hawaii: The First Leg is Complete

On our last update we were getting ready to depart for Hawaii for the winter months.
We made our way from our temporary parking spot at our friends, the Batty’s in Bellville, to parking at our home town church parking lot, while staying at our pastor’s families home.
About 10 days later we moved the truck and trailer (Charlie and Jacob “the Ark”) to a car lot near the Airport, then took a taxi to a hotel and then made our way to the airport the following morning.

It Is Well…

Am I really that different?

This is the question I ask myself after each year on my birthday. I look back at the promises I made to myself, to others and to God. Most people look in the mirror and are disappointed with their aging as years go by, and I was no different. Now instead I look into my journal and see if I’ve grown “older” in the person I am; If I am wiser, making better choices than I did the year previous. My disappoint does not come from growing “older” in that way, but by staying the same; by not changing and by not growing.

My biggest fear has become the slew of pages I write, filled with biblical truths about man and his separation from God, and what I must to strengthen that relationship again. Fear in writing what I know to be true but doing very little to follow it.
