- Leonard to Ed, Northern Exposure
It's strange those Alaskas in our lives...for as long as I can remember I've wanted to move to this Last Frontier. Like so many dreams it kind of became one of those 'things you always hope to do but know realistically it will never happen' something like, someday I'll climb Mount Everest or go to the moon etc.... But suddenly like God unlocking a secret passage way I knew nothing about, the door opened and with equal amounts of fear and anticipation I ventured in. Then God met me here, so now...do I turn and try to go back where I came from or do I see what more He might have for me in this place He set in my heart from before the beginning. Right or wrong turns, which way do I go...
It has been very springful these last few days again. Sherry and I took the dogs and went for a jor out on the Bering (smooth sailing).
Today Sherry harnessed up their dog Comet (a pup they got from one of Martin Buser's dogs) and Einer made his village mushing debut in the tundra behind teacher housing. You can see him talking to his fans just like a pro. It was quite a sight, Sherry running along with Comet who was harnessed to the Einer-sized sled that Principal Eric built him. Einer proudly standing on his sled hollering out commands followed by 3 or 4 neighbor kids running along to get in on the action and finally Addy snuggled into her jogging stroller being pushed by another one of the kids. And we call it the mushing caravan. Sherry was laughing, and said that earlier today it was the same scenario except she was carrying Addy!!!
Took the fifth graders skiing again. What a beautiful day!
Just like the rest of us,
she decided to take advantage of the ever increasing evening sun.
"This is the way God put it: They found grace out in the desert, these people who survived the killing. Israel, out looking for a place to rest, met God out looking for them! God told them, "I've never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love!" Jeremiah 31:2-3
