Good Day, God!
Watching the 4th of July fireworks overlooking the marina in Hawaii Kai — such a treat!
Earlier today, my husband Kit suggested that we go to watch the fireworks display. I am not yet home 24 hours so although I was willing, I was not eager.
Still, off we went to get a bite to eat at Panda Express and then figure out where we should station ourselves to see the display.
As soon as we drove into the Costco lot we saw LOTS of people — carrying chairs and coolers — walking toward the marina. Hmm. It seems we had stumbled onto a good place! We got our food and went around the corner to a far table with a view of the bridge going over the entrance to the marina. We ate and chatted and I took photos of the pre-display.
Being part of this informal group — gathered to celebrate Our Country’s birthday — felt good. It is good to be connected with one another. And, of course, it was truly wonderful that the explosions were fireworks and not aerial bombardments.
Thank You, God, for Peace!
Please help us to value peace more highly — understanding that daily we weave our strands into its complex fabric.
