Why are these earthquakes becoming such frequent occurrences? Why is our earth feeling the need to shift around so much? It's fascinating to learn about the science of it all... if only it didn't cause so much death and destruction.
Haiti update: I have gotten word from Compassion International (the child sponsorship program that I go through), and Dana, whom I've sponsored in Haiti for years now, is thought to be safe, as she did not live in the affected area. I'm still waiting to hear from her directly, but I'm sure the entire country is experiencing delays in communications. Nevertheless, I'm thankful for the news I've received.
My prayers are still with the people of Haiti, as well as the people of Chile.
Watching the coverage of Hawaii yesterday got me thinking a lot about, well, Hawaii. They kept showing places and I'd say, OH! I've been there! And there! And there!
Hawaii is dear to me, as I've visited four times so far, and have made it to the four major islands: Oahu, Hawaii, Kauai, and Maui.
For today's Something to Look at Sunday, I thought I'd pay homage to these beautiful islands with some photos from my travels there. Enjoy!
