The title was in reference to that famous Eraserheads’ late 90s album called Aloha Milkyway.
Last year, August 2019, our family went to the US for the first time as the three of us. It was my first time in Hawaii and this blog reaction was way overdue but I think I have reacted enough (and on time) via Instagram.
I have decided to write about this to reflect on how amazing God is! The forests behind us? Surrounding us? I am in awe! I knew that Hawaii is awesome but I have never imagined even once that it would feel that way. Photos do not give Hawaii’s beauty enough justice! It’s heaven on earth!
It somehow made me a little sad that I am not getting enough exposure to these parts of the world having spent my life in cities. Just standing in the middle of nowhere is like being able to breath again! (Backstory: SOB is normal for me being severely anemic)
My sister-in-law and her family is based in Hawaii and so when they invited us to join them even for a short while, we said YES! And it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I know that there are lots of people who are exposed to such beauty, to the wonders of nature, and it may seem shallow for me to react this way but I am really grateful to have experienced this especially having been on lock down for months now.
Let’s pray for our lives to be back to normal once again so we can enjoy God’s creation once more!
I leave you with this verse from the book of Psalm chapter 50, verse 2, “Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God shines forth.”
