Good Quotes I got in an email...

Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death...

God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts...

Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, and faith looks up...

A successful marriage isn't finding the right person; it's being the right person.

Here's a couple more good ones.

I saw the snares that the enemy spreads out over the world and I said groaning, "What can get through from such snares?" Then I heard a voice saying to me, "Humility."
-St. Anthony the Great

Every day you provide your bodies with food to keep them from failing. In the same way your good works should be the daily nourishment of your hearts. Your bodies are fed with food and your spirits with good works. You aren't to deny your soul, which is going to live forever, what you grant to your body, which is going to die.
-St. Gregory the Great

The name Kiana and Scherck are too much for coincidence. Back in the late 50's and early 60's, I used to fly into Kiana and visit a Mr. Scherck and his son Lorri...Lorrie. I spent six years in Alaska and remember very nice visits to Kiana...any connection?

Hi Dick,

Nice to hear tidbits about the village of Kiana. I've not heard very many stories about that place.

I've lived in in quite a few towns around the state but never up there in Kiana. My parents saw the town of Kiana's name on the map ages ago and liked it so much they named me after the it. None of us have ever been there, but I would like to see it some day.

Devin Scherk and his family are all originally from Colorado. I know they don't have any connection to the town of Kiana and moved out of Alaska many years ago. I'm almost positive there isn't a Lorrie in that particular Scherk family.

Devin's real blog is at: http://www.datarefuge.com/

Do you make it back up here to Alaska very often?
