Ho‘omau and having faith

In my family this past week we have talked about Ho‘omau (this month’s Ho‘ohana value of persistence and perseverance) in regard to what can be gained from faith and answered prayers: On Wednesday my brother Jeff returned safely from Iraq.

We have not seen him yet, for he is somewhere in Washington state for his debriefing, but it is good to know he is on his way.

As we wait for him, a revisit to a Talking Story post from my archives where I had helped Jeff get published:    Red, White and Blue Values.

    Glad Jeff is home safe and sound. Please thank him for serving our country for me. As a veteran, I am thankful for people like your brother who are willing to endure and fight the good fight.

    Mahalo nui Phil! Jeff has read Talking Story as much as he’s been able to keep up with it, so I am pretty sure he will see your good words himself now that he will soon be home (just short of 2 weeks). However I will be sure to let him know too, for he will greatly appreciate hearing of your mana’o.
