Have you visited Alaska?
I've said this before: "I was born here, grew up here, live here and will probably die here, but afterwards... I plan to live forever!"
I was born in Old Harbor on Kodiak Island. (Link goes to a picture of Old Harbor on www.kodiak.org.) Old Harbor remains a small village in a gorgeous spot. I love the ocean but my home is not near the ocean. We do get to the ocean whenever we can. I love getting near the ocean in Hawaii too! (Link goes to David Frazier's Photolibrary.)
I spent my growing up years in Old Harbor with four brothers and five sisters. I now live in South-Central Alaska, in the beautiful Matanuska Valley. (Link goes to Lloyd Photography, beautiful pictures!)
Yep, I plan to live forever afterwards, because I believe - for I've heard and read that
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes should not perish, but have everlasting life."
