Our Maui life has been a collection of superlatives. So many friends. So much beauty. The best church. The most comfortable life. A vineyard full of ripe fruit.
Then a scorching fire burned our landscape, and parched, we found a deep well of love from which we could drink, over and over again. Our thirst has been bottomless. You have poured pure water on us unrelentingly.
strength for our new changes, courage to face our future.
We've needed you all and every drop of your mercy.
Leaving you is so difficult. You are tattooed on our hearts now, like my son's name on my arm. We love you and will never forget you.
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God, but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us. I Jn 4:11,12
