How to live through anything. The fish principle
Click on the above link to read the blog post.
This showed up on my Face Book page. Posted by a friend of mine.
In the past few months I have been looking for joy in my life.
I have not been counting the fish though.
By the time I finished reading it, I was literally sobbing.
It is amazing where epiphanies come from sometimes.
In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.

|Pepper and I were out on poop patrol. I can't help taking pictures of her. She is so darn cute.|
|After our nap, a very happy rested boy.|
|A couple of days later, Great Granddaughter Miss Trynity came over to try on some shoes a friend had given to Gramma for her. Unfortunately the feet were just too big.|
|Mommy tried real hard to get her to like them.|
|But she had them off as soon as she could.|
|Pepper keeping vigil out the front window. Nothing gets past her.|

It has been nearly three weeks since Stan and I took our little jaunt up to Southeastern Alaska. Life interceeded and I have not been able to post the final pictures of our trip. I am making time to do so right now.
|Mountains jutting up through the clouds.|
|A cruise ship making it's way into port in Ketchican. It was still a way out, but it was expected to land while we were in town.|
|Coming into Ketchican, you landed on the opposite side of the channel from the town. The landing strip looked a little scary from above.|
|A little better picture of it as we approached. You land on the far left side and then make a sharp right at the end on the runway, go down a hill and taxi to the end once again and then down to the terminal. Kind of interesting. Three levels.|
|In this picture, the ferry is across the channel from the airport. It comes over and ferries you across to the Ketchican side of the channel for a small fee.|
|We saw several Eagle in the area. They are so amazing to watch. The grace of their flight in comparison to their size is amazing to me.|
|Ketchican Creek that flows through town. Much of the old town is built around this creek.|
|There were four cruise ships along the docks downtown. There are two more slips further out of the downtown area and they were expecting both to be occupied by evening.|
|Ketchican boasts being the Salmon Capital of the world. She was also, once upon a time, a logging town. Sadly so many regulations have severely curtailed both industries. She relies more and more upon the tourist trade now.|
|I just liked the tunnel going under the hill, the house atop the tunnel and the stairs going up.|
|I am thinking if one were to do these stairs even once a day, up and down, you would never have to worry about having thunder thighs. Stan thinks they would make an amazing bobsled run in the winter.|
|Almost home. Can you see the Space Needle?|
|Coming in for a landing, Both of our sports arenas below us.|
|Mount Rainier. We will be on the ground within minutes.|
I guess I will just have to wait until tomorrow morning and see which way the wind is blowing when we get up.
Do you have fun plans for the weekend?

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness and faith. Galatians 5:22.
This is the best description of her.

|I also picked up this beautiful dish. I was amazed to find it is cut glass and not pressed. A rare thrift store find and a true score.|
|I turned it upside down and photographed it this way also. I was hoping the facets would show a little better. I have not found an use for it yet but I will.|
Best thing is I paid . I paid about $4.00 for this!
