Popping down in Maui

We landed in Maui after a very relaxed plane trip-- maybe more relaxing because our tummies were relatively empty since we didn't realize that the planes didn't offer regular meals (they are now more like paid snacks). In any case, we were ravenous, got our rental car and went to the nearest open place that looked like it might have a good food selection (one of those drugstores open until midnight) and stocked up on junk... yes, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, corn chips (organic, but chips nonetheless) and salsa, etc. We passed a bunch of open-late grocery stores that would have been better places to pick up fresh produce, but hey, it's holiday time, right? So we drove and then came to our lovely rented condo. It is warm here-- 22C around 10 pm. All is well, God is good!

"Everything that is,is freely given by the God of love. All is grace. Light and water, shelter and food, work and free time, children, parents, grandparents, life and death— it is all given to us. Why? So that we can say thanks; thanks to God, thanks to each other, thanks to all and everyone.”
—Henri Nouwen
