Hanapepe Bridge

I think the sign pretty much says it all....
as we were driving one day, I saw this sign and told Tim to "Pull Over."
I'd read about the Hanapepe Swinging Bridge in a tour guide and thought, "Hey, Why not?"
Isaiah and Ashley were asleep in the car...Tyler said, "uh...no.  I'll stay here with sister."  So...
I drug Tim and Aiden out to the bridge with me.

Up they go...

Aiden checking to see if I'm still following them...

 Signs like this always make me wonder at the intelligence of our society.

Then I took a close look at the bridge...
and wondered about my intelligence.

About 1/3 to 1/2 of the way across I started to hyperventilate.
I could feel the bridge swinging.
Yes, I know it is a swinging bridge, but it was not doing going things to my stomache or my lungs!
I yelled to Tim, "Hey!  Stop!  I can't go all the way across ~ I'm full of FEAR!  I don't like the motion."
His comment, "Thank goodness.  I've been sick ever since I stepped on here.  I'm doing this for you!"
Awww....he does love me!

If only I had remembered this verse while I was on that bridge....

Psalm 56:3-4
When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?

(what can a swinging bridge do to me?)
