"Home Again, Home Again ..."

There is a Mother Goose nursery rhyme that goes,
To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, dancing a jig;
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog;
Home again, home again, jiggety-jog;
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,
Home again, home again, market is done."
While I haven't danced a jig, bought a hog or purchased a bun, I can revise the last line and say,
Home again, home again, our Hawaii trip is done!

Mornings sure are tough still; today is the first day back at my desk here at Banner of Truth in Carlisle, PA and 8:30 a.m. eastern time still feels as if it's the 3:30 a.m. Hawaii time that I'd grown used to. Wow. How do people do this?
To bring you up to date - I had a great visit and lunch with Kevin (pictured here as he takes a customer's lunch order) and his incredible staff at Covenant Books and Coffee there in Honolulu. If you visit the islands, you must stop in. And if you guess the identities of all ten(?) Puritans on his wall, he'll give you a free book. Thank you Kevin, along with Dave and Roland and Brandy and everyone else there at Covenant Books & Coffee.
My wife did an incredible job and loved working with the staff of Trinity Christian School in Kailua. And we both very much appreciate their serious desire and offer to have her work there full-time, but ...
Our trip home was blessed with an 8-hour stopover in Chicago; just enough time to be picked up by one of our "unofficially adopted sons," taken to his apartment to "crash," then join him and his wife for church followed by lunch with several other couples at another house - all before he returned us to O'Hare to continue our flight! Thanks, Mark!
Now, it's emails and messages and strategy planning and ............ I hope you are doing well (and are more awake than I am) wherever this finds you. Grace & peace to you this day.
Steve
