Kaua’i in a Day… a very JT thing to do

Sometimes you have to stop, pause take it all in and begin again...


Fun fact about me is I get some of my best thinking done on an airplane. So, to travel far away for just a day to get my head straight is actually just like me. There’s something about being up high that reminds me of how small I am and how big God is. And thanks to gogo inflight Internet, I got more thinking and writing done than emails sent so in case you are wondering gogo only works 30 minutes off the coast to the US (though American Airlines advertises the flights to Hawaii have wifi).

Journey towards joy

As we approach the day our son arrives, I can’t help but feel this amazing sense of gratitude and excitement for what lies ahead of us.  There’s also some anxiety and a little bit of fear of the unknown, of course, so exercising trust has been a constant aspect of these final days of pregnancy.  Well, to be completely honest, exercising trust has been a constant practice throughout these whole 9 months.  For someone who has always struggled with fear, learning how to wait and relax in between doctors’ appointments and ultrasounds was somewhat challenging. Yet, it taught me that I’m not in control of anything and that the miracle of life doesn’t depend on any of us.  It’s simply that, a miracle, and it’s totally dependent upon grace.  But oh, how hard it was to let go and trust!  As each day passed with this new life growing inside of me, I was constantly reminded that it was okay to trust again, that it was okay to believe again, and finally give myself the chance to experience the joy of being pregnant again.

If I had it all

If I had it all figured out
There’d be no point in dreaming
If I could rid the world of every problem
Our time would be void of meaning

If I made all the right choices
I’d be robbed of learning from my mistakes
And if everything was certain
What’d be the point of faith?

Questions circling, my mind racing, my emotions ragging,
Try to grasp what I’m saying…
