Daniel and Brianna just returned last night from visiting Mike and Grace for a couple of weeks in Hawaii. As always (when it comes to any of our family visiting any of the rest of us), they had a simply grand time! I’m sure before too long, Brianna will have lots of pictures out on facebook, but in the meantime, Michael is gracious enough to let me share a few pictures of their adventures. Of course, the main attraction (besides family) in Hawaii is learning how to surf, and it takes a lot of arm strength, leg strength, coordination and balance to pull it all off, but Michael says that Daniel was a natural! (Must be all that time he spends playing Pump It Up, ’cause I sure couldn’t have done that! 🙂 ) Brianna was a little more timid, but Grace told me that she was actually a quick learner, very strong, and made it up before they had to leave for home! Way to go, Brianna! 🙂 Grace called me yesterday with two other pieces of wonderful news. Nothing is in stone yet, but it sounds like they will be moving to Korea after Michael graduates this summer. Even more exciting, Eowyn just asked the Lord to forgive her of her sins yesterday, making her His very own child by faith in Jesus Christ. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow!!!
It’s exciting to visit new places and have new experiences, but isn’t it most wonderful of all to know that in the end, God is preparing a home in heaven for us?! The Bible says “God is not willing that any should perish.” Instead, God desires that all of us repent and be reconciled to Him, being “born again” through faith in his Son, Jesus Christ. Have you received His free gift of salvation? If not, I pray that before the sun sets today you will give your heart to God…just like little Eowyn…and become His child.
“Behold, now is the accepted time; today is the day of salvation.”
