giving way


Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings.  Victor Hugo 


packing, cleaning, directions to our house sitter

stepping on the plane...

the bough gives way and we are off!

the Last Frontier our destination

with God's wind

beneath our wings

*each summer, since 2005, we head north to Alaska to serve as short-term missionaries in a remote fishing village.  {although nowadays, we view the village as our second home and consider ourselves "friends" vs "missionaries".}  this year we add another bush village to our plate...OH, BOY!...1-2-3 FLY!

**pillows courtesy of Marshall's -- i knew if i waited long enough i would find anthro-like pillows for a fraction of the price!

Yeah!!! So glad you found you found pillows that are SO you! Also, glad to know that you will be heading where my heart yearns to go. I figure, one of these days, I will be going with you. I know I have told you before, but my brother in-law and his family live up there, and one day you may just make it to where they are. They so need seeing Christ through friends like you and your family. My prayers will be with you friend. Can't wait to see the pictures this year :) Maybe more bears!!!
