I will admit, every day in Hawaii is a beautiful day, but today was something extraordinary! I had the honor and privilege of greeting His Grace Bishop Dr. Maxim of Western America and Father Blasko Paraklis from Mission Viejo, CA at the Honolulu airport. I was so inspired as we talked over lunch about all things Serbian - and of course how awesome the ahi poke bowl was and this beautiful Hawaii weather.
In regards to Serbia and Kosovo, it seems like the humanitarian opportunities are endless, where do you even begin? But after spending a couple of hours with these two men of God and hearing their perspective and ideas, I was encouraged. It's as if God was doing that special thing that only He can do -bringing people into your life at just the right time to inspire and encourage.
Yes, Hawaii was blessed today, and so was I.
*A very special thank you to Igor who treated us to lunch today ~ Mahalo, Hvala Igor!
