A Tale of Two Minutes

The Random Thoughts of the Day.

Sometime around 5:00 am EST, I went to bed. At 7:10 am EST, my alarm went off. I think I may have heard it somewhere around 7:12 am EST. Aaaahhh, the glorious sensations of just two hours of sleep!

The school cafeteria had, for just $2.95, eggplant stuffed with sausage. Oh my goodness...that stuff was GOOD. It was half of the fat eggplant, too, not da skinny kine we used to grow in Mr. Saiki's class. Yup...buggah was ONO! The sausage was excellent, and they added some other things (like raisins for a sweet burst every now and then) that sent my tongue to heaven. Not to mention the eggplant...oh my...I LOVE eggplant...*sigh*...

I'm still trying to pick up a second job. I've applied at Home Depot, but I have applications to turn in to some other places on my hit list. So yeah...pray for that for me...I really want to honor God, as I've felt conviction from Him lately concerning this. I've realized that if I'm not being fervently obedient about things He convicts me in, I'm being disobedient. And that, my friends, is never a good thing.

I spoke to Matt yesterday while he was on his way to work at Ward Starbucks. He told me he was at Jack in the Crack grabbing some grub, and I didn't think much of it. Then he said, "you know, I'm never going to be able to turn out of here." Right then, I knew exactly where he was: the Jack's on the 'Ewa and Makai corner of Kapi'olani and Ward. The traffic over there is always heinous, almost no matter what time of day. I told him this, and he was like, "see John, you have to come back. You know your home too well to be away from it!" In a way, he's right. I do know my home...I love it...I miss it...I think about it often. But you know what? It's about what I wrote in the previous paragraph...I have to be fervently obedient, and part of that is staying here and doing what God would have me do for as long as He would have me do it. I also believe that a large part of that fervor is joy; that's how God created us to live! Oh, one more thing about what Matt said. He was right about me knowing my home too true home, that is. God has placed within those whom He has chosen a desire for our true home, our everlasting home. While I'm still here in the world, I'll always long for my true home, and my heart will ever grow in that desire as God weans me off the things of this world.

Still, I'd love to be back in Hawai'i. Oh, to feel the sun on my skin, to smell the flowers and hear the waves! I'd give my left...ummm...pinky finger...yeah, pinky finger, to be back home right now. After all, I don't need that to set a volleyball. Actually, no, I take that back. I need that to type. I'd give a toe instead :)
