Quips and Quotes
"We do not earn or merit anything by taking refuge in God. Hiding in something makes no contribution to the hiding place. All it does is show that we regard ourselves as helpless and the hiding place as a place of rescue." John Piper

Home From Hawaii

What a great time we had with our family in Hawaii! During our vacation we had our own personal live-in tour guide - our son Jeff. Though he has only lived on the island for about 6 months, he already knows it like the back of his hand. He and the rest of the family entertained us and were such wonderful hosts and hostesses. We are truly grateful for their kind attention to us.

We loved every minute. Every moment, that is, until the last day, when, as we were leaving Hanuama Bay, we discovered that Robert had lost his wedding ring while he was snorkeling. We were and still are so saddened by that. He had worn that ring for nearly 32 years. In a moment it was gone (a good picture of life itself, I guess).

Well, a picture is worth a thousand words so I am going to stop with the words and start with the photos.

We got up early to watch the sunrise from one of the most scenic spots on the island. It was a little chilly and Robert could not find his coat, so he wore his robe.

but he kept popping up.
