90 days ago one of the strongest pillars in my life was knocked out from underneath me. This “earthquake” shook my spiritual house just like the Hawaiian earthquake shook our house in this photo.

The last ninety days has taught me some things. I have learned that I can be shaken and not fall apart. I have learned that much like this lanai, I have many pillars holding me up –they are called my family of choice. And I have learned that the only unshakable thing is God himself. He is my “Always & Forever”.

He has taught me that during the earthquake is the best time to learn to hula.

I saw loyalty in action for 30+ years. I would not trade a day of drama/crazy/foolish infatuation with the kind of love we built. It was based on kingdom principles, steadfast trust and a shared vision and values. Word to the young: you don’t FIND a soulmate; you develop into one. ‪#‎mineishangingwithJesus‬ ‪#‎igotworktodo‬ ‪#‎hewasalwaysthefavorite‬
