This week, I am particularly missing Kaua'i. Perhaps it's because the movie is set in Kaua'i or perhaps it's just because it's my most favorite island.
On this rainy Aloha Friday, I want to share with you what I wrote in my journal when we last visited Kaua'i:
The humidity embraces my weary body as I step off the plane. My soul sighs with relief and I begin to weep. I don't even like Honolulu with its skyrise htoels and crowded beaches, but elation drips out of me.
"Welcome home," the thick hot air whispers in my ear. I spin around looking for the voice, but there's no one. Still my heart is overcome and I whisper back, "Thank you. I am home."On our next flight from Honolulu to Lihu'e, Kaua'i i wonder if going home to Our Lord will feel this same way. Will my soul sigh and finally feel like it can breathe? Will He whisper, "welcome home?"Scott kisses my cheek and rushes to get the rental car. I realize we are still earthbound.
I sit and wait. For much of my life, I realize, I've been sitting and waiting. Waiting for my soul to breathe. Waiting to hear from God what He has for me. Waiting to know my life's purpose....
So sit back a moment, and take a quick trip with me to my heartland. Take a trip with me to Kaua'i. Click the link below and let's hele on to Kaua'i....
