Hawaii Diaries: Above the Clouds

November 19, 2009 (written by Tim)
Good morning, good morning! 
That is what I said this morning, eagerly looking forward 
to our last hours at the most amazing hotel I have ever stayed in! 
God really blessed us with that. 

We packed up mighty early and were off to catch our flight. 
We were on a much smaller plane where Becki felt even less safe. Unfortunately the plane hit some turbulence that was strong enough to shake everyone up. My favorite thing to do on plane rides is to comfort my honey and sing to her. Becki is my delicate flower. We drove into Maui ready to conquer and fairly quickly headed up a 10,000 foot mountain!! 

We were above the clouds, and it was breathtaking. 

Going down, I got to be in neutral for 60 out of 61 minutes. 
It was exhilarating. 
I kept enough speed around turns to keep going 
but slow enough not to scare my honey.

Today we drove up Mt. Haleakala! 
10,000 feet! It was enchanting. 

One of my favorite things Timmy has ever said to me was, 
as we were driving up, 
"I knew I would drive off into the clouds with you someday." 
He is the sweetest boy.


  1. How beautiful! I love that you both have journal entries from your time together. It makes my scrapbooker-heart sorta kinda melt. :)

  2. Aww baby this is so touching. I really like remembering our special times together. I feel like the Lord really used Hawaii to bring our hearts to a new level of closeness. You became even more beautiful to me on that trip!
