Another lesson learned??

So yesterday, what began as a fairly innocuous conversation quickly turned heated as Angela and I (Luke) both quickly realized that we both were not feeling heard in the particular situation we were discussing... After a good half hour of jabs and insults, resulting in a stand-off and a walk-off (I'll let you guess who did what) we both went our separate ways taking care what needed to happen on a regular Saturday...  Sadly, I would like to say that it didn't take too long before we got right with each other, but this particular time it took a while, it took all day...

We are YWAM


From the moment we landed in Kona, Hawaii a strange sense of peace overtook me as we walked off the plane and into the cozy airport.  We were picked up by one of our oldest and dearest friends and as he placed the lei over our heads and kissed us on the cheek an overwhelming emotion took over as I felt a familiarity… We were with family.

How did this happen??!!



So, taking it back to February or March, our good friend Andrew called to say he was coming through SFO Airport and had a layover for a couple of hours. It had been over 3 years since we had seen him and Luke jumped at the chance to have a coffee with him, even for a short time. They had worked together in Australia for almost 8 years and have a long history together… so it was a wonderful opportunity to catch up.

Hi!  This is a longish blog it is also fairly vulnerable so just a heads up!!  For most of you that enjoy Ang's writing, this is a bit of a step down, full of unfinished thoughts, run-on sentences and ugly confessions.  So here goes, I didn't proof-read it mainly because it was uncomfortable reading it a second time!

Over the past few months we have been planning to go to Hawaii for some much needed time away.  We have been looking forward to it, getting ready and we have also been blessed with people giving towards us going...  But, as we wait, 2 days out before we are due to go, we find ourselves unable to pull the trigger to buy the tickets... All this has brought out an ugly side in me.  The side that wants to retreat into a corner, put my head in the sand and wish it would all work out.  The side of me that is revealed to be faithless and cowardly, the side that when pressure is applied, tries to worm its way out of responsibility and place blame and sink into self-pity.
