With Him in Paradise

The Grand Wailea Resort
Maui, HI

Tim and I just got back from a (fabulous) trip to Maui. While we were there I tried to snap a few baby names in the sand. I feel horrible that I didn't do more and even forgot :( a few that I had intended to write. I guess we will just have to go back sooner than planned!

None the less, from the moment we arrived on Maui, I could not stop thinking about my girl. I think about her everyday, but this was different. I was in paradise - kinda like her. ;)

The views, the beach, the ocean, the flowers (the food) ...all of it, literally brought tears to my eyes. At some point I remember turning to Tim and mustering out the words, I can't believe He has already shown her all of this. Amazing. Seriously, amazing.

I can't wait for heaven. sigh

and since it's Holy Week....

Jesus answered him, 
“Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” 
Luke 23:42-44

We were there at Christmas...with Luke...and just as you said, it's paradise. But yes, leaves a little longing still...as we miss those precious ones who TRULY are in paradise.

As I told you, I felt that same thing when I saw Rachel's name in the sand there... I thought of her in paradise. I bet it's even better than our minds can picture. I wish I could just be happy for her and not sad for me...thank you for encouraging me along the way.
love you!
