Overcoming Jealousy

I wish I could say by the title of this post, that I read something in God's Word that really stuck out to me today, but I'm just suffering from crazy, green, jealousy.....of my mother & father in law.  They get to experience the Hawaiian Paradise for 2 weeks!  I do wish them well, but I do wish I was with them...and Brent too.  It is an amazing celebration of 40 years of marriage, so they deserve it.  Have I mentioned that I'm green with envy? :)  I'm just reminiscing of 5 1/2 years ago of our amazing 10 day honeymoon to the Tropical Paradise.  Someday again.  I hope.

Excuse me as I remember.
Our first glimpse of Oahu.

Nothing was like falling asleep to the sounds of the waves.

My new husband. :)

First experience at para sailing.

Boat ride to Molokini Crater.

Waikiki Beach.

Diamond Head.

Early, early morning.  Even with a 1 year old, we still struggle to be morning people.

Gift from our hotel.

Last night in paradise.

 Oh how I miss the days of dates whenever we want and vacations that don't take much preparation.  I do miss it, but then I look at our smiling son and am once again reminded of how blessed we are.  We wanted a child for 10 months before the Lord saw fit to give us one....and oh how we love him.  Thank you Lord for past memories and future ones to come.  We love you Mom & Dad.  May God bless your trip and keep you close to him as you experience the closest thing to Heaven. (in my opinion-Colista would say Grand Cayman ;) )
