Eagle Summit, Alaska

Eagle Summit is at 108 mile Steese highway and it's about 2hr drive from Fairbanks.

At the peak of the Eagle Summit

Long and winding dirt road. It's a good road, we had a smooth ride through it.

My family

Abby and Farcom rode at the back of the truck

Just being me. On our way back home

Sharing the fire and food to the strangers. The weather was good but it's pretty windy up there.

The Sun was starting to go back up. This picture was taken at 2:15am Alaska time 6/22/10 on Eagle Summit

Fortune Teller

This is something that the Christian should not do and should not believe in...but what if it became true??? I'm going to tell you a story about my dad and I'll let you be the judge..
When my dad was a teenager, his friends invited him to go to a fortune teller. Of course my dad was pessimistic about it but he went and did it anyway. This is what the fortune teller told him:

1. He's going to get married to a woman who is from his hometown but they will meet in the land far away from home.
My dad and my mom are both from Pangasinan. My dad moved to Mindanao because he got a good paying job down there. My Mom's family had moved to Mindanao also because of my Grandfather who was in Military. Thousand miles away from their hometown and they've met and got married.

2. He's going to have 5 children.
At first my mom and dad had 3 kids, the oldest one was a boy and followed by 2 girls. When the youngest girl turned 6 years old, my mom and dad decided to add another one and was hoping to have a boy, so they'll have 2 boys and 2 girls. Indeed, a boy was born but the unexpected and unplanned happened. A girl came out a year after the boy was born...and that girl was ME.. 5 kids.

3. He will not get rich but not poor either. 
There was always enough to meet his family's needs, sometimes more than enough to even share to others. I remember my dad, when he help people, he used to say "get as much as you can, as long as you can carry it home, it's yours"

4. One of your kids will get into medical field but won't succeed, but it will be okey.
One of my sister graduated from midwifery and got her licensed but didn't really get in to practicing it. She instead went to bible school for 5 years and graduated. Got a job in the church but when she was offered to an opportunity to go to nursing school, she grabbed it right away and graduated with good grades. However, she took the medical board exam several times but she could not seem to past it. She's in my parents house right now, taking care of the property and the farm and also helping people with their medical needs. She's going to Dubai real soon though.

5. You will die when you turn 60.
My dad didn't die when he turns 60 but all of his friends who went to that fortune teller died right on the year they were told they will. When my dad turned 60 he kind of scared but he asked for prayers and asked God to give him few more years so he can do what he needs to get done. Indeed, God gave him 4 and 1/2 more years.
So what do you think? Can someone really sees what's future hold for somebody? or is it just a coincidence?

Abigail's Journey

I just got done reading this book on my iphone. I was going to search for an Apps for my iphone but when I click the search box, the tittle of this book was written on there. I don't ever remember typing that title and I don't who, where, what, when, how I got this book title typed on my iphone apps search box. However, I decided to bought it since it's only .99cent and I'm so glad I did. When I started reading it, I couldn't put my iphone down, this book is amazing, inspirational and encouraging. The author did a really good job.
Any how, if any of you know anything about this book, please let me know, I might have heard it from you or something..

Salcha River

 Made a short drive to Salcha river and on our way there, we stopped by the Knotty Shop and bought us some ice cream. I really love their ice cream and the 30mile drive from our home to Knotty Shop worth it.
               Abby and Farcom back to swimming again.

Tired and Weary

Heal my heart and make it clean
Open up my eyes to the things unseen
Show me how to love like you have loved me
Break my heart from what breaks yours
Everything I am for your kingdoms cause
As I go from nothing to Eternity

Better Than A Hallelujah

God loves a lullaby
In a mother's tears in the dead of night
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes.
God loves the drunkard's cry,
The soldiers plea not to let him die
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes.

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah.

The woman holding on for life,
The dying man giving up the fight
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes
Tears of shame for what's been done,
The silence when the words won't come
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes.

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah.

Better than a church bell ringing,
Better than a choir singing out, singing out.

Better Than A Hallelujah by Amy Grant
