history fact 3).
Lest I continue
My complacent way,
Help me to remember that somewhere,
Somehow out there
A man died for me today.
As long as there be war,
I then must
Ask and answer
Am I worth dying for?
That poem above was Eleanor Roosevelt's Wartime Prayer that she kept in her pocket during the war. I enjoyed having time to walk, read, and ponder life and death, peace and war, the purpose of this life. It was the one time that I was glad we didn't have the kids with us, cause I'm sure they would have gotten tired and would have been ready to leave. We were happy to be able to take all the time we wanted.
Temple. We had plans to go to the temple yesterday before going to the Polynesian Cultural Center, but when I checked online for what time the sessions started, wouldn't you know it's just our luck we just missed it.. it's closed for cleaning and opens again on Tuesday morning, when we arrive back in Salt Lake. Bummer. But I guess that means we for sure get to come back!
history of the LDS church in Hawaii. So cool, I love this church, it's missionaries, it's history, the testimonies of those early converts. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ restored in these latter days. It's all true! Then we headed back to Kapolei, which took a good 3 hours cause I kept making Corey stop so I could take pictures of the ocean. There were layers and layers of waves coming in - big ones breaking really far away in the back, waves breaking in the middle, and waves crashing into the shore, I loved it~
Ok, go. Stop! WOW! Now those are really cool waves! Over and over again. Corey was very patient with me. He'd sit and wait as I pretended to be a photographer. Knowing he was just stopping for me, I thanked him and asked "So, what do YOU want to do?" His reply "Take pictures of waves. Lots and lots of waves." We took a break from my ocean photo shoot and enjoyed some lunch at the "Famous Kahuku Shrimp" food truck. I wondered if their food menu crate is related to our crate furniture in Brazil. That's just all I think of whenever I see a wood crate.
