My journey to the great state of Alaska started June 13, 2009. This is an attempt to share the adventure with my family and friends who are so much a part of the story... "This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike 'What's next, Papa?" Romans 8:15-16

Ode to My First Shiner
"A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip." ~Author Unknown
This last one has been quite a ride! Here's to the next 365! 32 years ago I came into this world with a black eye. You can imagine all my infant pictures, humorously foreshadowing what was to come. That God of ours, what a kidder! Yes, sometimes the hand you are dealt begins with a black eye. From there it can only get better;) Pictured above: Why Ani is afraid of children:)
Shout Out To: My Mum and Dad. Quyana. Thank You. And to all you Birkiers and Volunteers (for real this time;) Have Fun Tomorrow!!! And to Joe back in Hayward "Happy Birthday!"
"Let me tell you what God said next. He said, "You're my son (daughter:), And today is your birthday. What do you want? Name it: Nations as a present? continents as a prize? You can command them all to dance for you, Or throw them out with tomorrow's trash." So, rebel-kings, use your heads; Upstart-judges, learn your lesson: Worship God in adoring embrace, Kiss Messiah! Your very lives are in danger, you know; His anger is about to explode, But if you make a run for God - you won't regret it!" Psalm 2:7-12
