another day

another perfect sunset
we drove a lot this day but timed the sunset right and bought some yummy coffee in Kona.
Then we went to do battle with the hippies in the campground, a scourge on a beautiful place. Posted by Picasa

checking it out

getting under the lava's skin - walking in a cooled off lava tube. Posted by Picasa

this is the end of the road. It stops where the lava begins. we love the humor of this place, building on a volcano!! Posted by Picasa

Lord please help me...

to be more like this creature. Help me to be free from the cares of this world, floating on the breeze of your love and power. Help me to be beautiful by reflecting the light that is you. Even though I am fragile fill me with your strength, your love, your power to fly, to get above the trees and see the forest. As I move through this troubled and sometimes dark world let me be a ray of light pointing to you, and if they refuse to see you give me a five cell steel flashlight with which to lovingly crush their empty skulls. Posted by Picasa
