A Walk from Kakaako to Queens and back

Good Day, God!

When I said that I wanted to go with my loving husband, Kit, to his 9:00 a.m. audiologist appointment, I didn’t really imagine what it would involve. First we left his car off at Kyle’s Service in Kakaako for an oil change and then we walked  to Queens Physician’s Office Building I. Walking there and then back!

Now that I have admitted this, God, I know that our daughter, Suzanne, who also loves to walk, is snickering at me.  When Kit first brought it up I assumed he wanted me to follow in my car and then when he had dropped his car off for a safety check we would drive to POB I. What else would anyone do?

I wouldn’t call myself a slug, God. I like going for walks. Really. I just don’t think of walking as a mode of getting somewhere. Walks and hikes are to see the beauty all around us and enjoy nature. They aren’t to get somewhere.

However, I rallied, God. This is a “Love Gift,” I told myself. Well, actually, that is what I told Kit! I put on my running shoes and a pretty good attitude and we set off.

Much to the surprise of my “Stick-in-the-mud” self I loved the walks. The public buildings and public lands in downtown Honolulu are lovely. Being outside with green rolling lawns and bright blue skies is a treat. And I took lots of pictures.

Dang! I was just hit with the thought that Kit isn’t the only one that offers me opportunities that I initially dismiss. You do that do.

You are longing to pull me out of my stuckness and into Your Greater Out-of-Doors. Thank You!
