ALOHA from O’ahu in Hawaii. . .

Hawaii has been in the news this past week and friends on Facebook have been concerned about our safety.
As MAL as mentioned, we 3 gals, MaryAnne, Denise and myself are safe and sound far away from Kilauea Volcano that is erupting at this time and encroaching upon communities, burning homes and causing much damage.  The fireworks are going off on Hawaii Island, largest and youngest island about 250 miles southeast of us.

Our island, O’ahu is the 3rd largest of the major 8 Hawaiian islands and the ‘main island’ since its reputation for being ‘The Gathering Place’ from before the days of the Hawaiian kingdom, Hawaii being the only state where monarchs formerly reigned and where visitors can tour the I’olani Palace and historic places in Honolulu.  As ‘The Gathering Place’, O’ahu is the political and economic center; we have an international airport and strong military presence here, as well as Pearl Harbor and the National Memorial Cemetary of the Pacific.  You can find out more on the world’s largest encyclopedia, the internet.

I have posted several photos that include recent events in Hawaii and more at ‘God’s Enduring Love’

I've been off camping and out of touch with the internet for a few days so the TV news tonight was a big surprise.  Glad to hear our PB friends are all safe.

Liz, thank you for posting about the safety of you, Mea and Denise.  I have been concerned about the volcano erupting and was praying for your safety.  I have been away for two weeks and only got back last evening so haven't had time to catch up on all the news. However, I am relieved and grateful that you are all safe, praise the Lord.
