Hawaii Life

As of Sunday, we have officially been living in Hawaii for a year!  It is hard to believe that a year has already gone by, time sure does seem to fly!  I wish it would slow down just a bit, but since we can't control that we are making every effort to soak in all the beauty that we can here : )

Oh you live in Hawaii, gosh I feel so bad for you!  We hear this a lot from our mainland friends, especially during those winter months when they are outside shoveling snow for the umpteenth time! But in all seriousness, we absolutely love living in Hawaii and feel so blessed for the opportunity to live here.  I can't even begin to tell you what it looks like here, or what it is like living here and seeing  God's beauty day in and day out!  There are still a lot of days where I look out my windows and find myself thinking, is this really my home?  I think you should probably just come visit and see for yourself, but I am warning you, you may not want to leave.  The mountains and the ocean and the greenery and the vegetation, it is truly a sight to see and one to bask in.  My husband always says that God must have had so much fun creating the islands of Hawaii.  Each island is so different, yet breathtaking in it's own way.  Alright, who is coming to visit?  We have an extra bedroom to share with our friends!

Over the past year, we have been blessed with many new friendships and had we never moved here we would have never met any of these people!  We have a wonderful street of neighbors who we get along with really well and hang out with frequently.  It is so nice having people around to hang with, since all of our families are so far away.  Hawaii has strengthened us and blessed us in more ways than we can say.  Being far from all of our families is hard, but it makes us appreciate the time we have together so much more.  God is using our time here in Hawaii to teach us a lot, and we are remaining open for all His teachings and many blessings.

As for Asher, sweet boy is still kicking in mommy's belly, Praise God!  We are enjoying every day and making the most of every day we get to spend with this little guy.  Doctor appointments days are the hardest for us and we have a few of those days coming up, please be in prayer for us, we appreciate it and you so much!
