I loaded a few pictures on this site at the halfway point, but now I have about a hundred. So to see them all at your own pace, use this facebook link.
Finally, here's a little slideshow I put together, to the music of Alaska by Sky Sailing:

|Joe and Kay|
|Kristy and Joe|
|Macy, Haley, & Brooke|
|And, of course, Hunter|
|A picture of a picture being taken...cool, huh?|
|The Reid Glacier, in Glacier Bay National Park|
|Kristy, Macy, Haley, and Joe taking it all in|
|At the state capitol|
|Macy, Brooke, Haley and me...as close I wanna get to a bear|
“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. (Mark 13:32)
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ (Jesus in Matthew 7:21-23)Every time I read this passage before last week, I focused in on the fact that faith is more than believing facts. That many will say they believe all the right things but will learn that their actions showed they didn't really know God. But I missed a really key phrase, and it was pointed out to me as I was reading last week. The phrase is this: "I never knew you."
It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. (Philippians 1:15-18)Paul didn't care why people were preaching the gospel of Jesus, he was just excited that the word was getting out. I think he would feel the same way about Mr. Sheen. Whatever the motives, if it gets more help for the people who desperately need it, bring it on!
