Montana realized the Grand Canyon mules fascinated Pepper, but he didn’t want Pepper to miss the Canyon for the mules.

“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.”
John 21:25 KJV

Straight Edge

I would have listened more in high school geometry class if …

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Hebrews 4:12 KJV

… someone had explained to me how it would help me create the best layout for cutting hundreds of quilt squares.

United Hearts

wedding dance

June placed her hope in God as she started an unknown future with Moose. Watching Zeke walk towards them, holding Susanna’s family Bible, remained a favorite memory.

“But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.”
Psalm 5:11 KJV

Not Just Another Luau

feast for the eyes

The sight of a mother moose and her calf silenced Moose and June’s early morning chatter.

“When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,

And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.”
John 2:9-11 KJV

Faithful

second language

Although she didn’t fully understand her recent slavery, June saw God’s faithfulness in her life’s work. With a smaller workforce at the laundry due to her absence, Harriet had found time to teach the workers English.

“And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.”
2 Timothy 2:2 KJV

Feast

pineapple trap

When Mr. Kingman announced a feast to honor Jake, June placed the food boxes over the garbage chute to thwart Jake’s shady business deals.

“He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.”
Luke 1:53 KJV

Found in ‘Frisco

'frisco or francisco

A vendor at the farmer’s market noticed June’s skill in choosing ripe fruits. Shouting over the noise, June shared her experiences on the ‘Frisco and Brine Shine. Emperor Norton—mayor of San Francisco—walked by and cringed at the “misuse” of his beloved city’s name. A policeman promptly arrested June. In the following trial, Moose, sold in Oahu and a recent arrival to San Francisco, testified that June had worked on a ship named ‘Frisco. Upon obtaining her freedom, June recommended Moose as a gardener for the Kingman estate.

“Touching the Almighty, we cannot find him out: he is excellent in power, and in judgment, and in plenty of justice: he will not afflict.”
Job 37:23 KJV

Silk Salve

pineapple party

June earned her pineapple prep degree from the many parties the captain hosted in the Port of Manila. When the captain’s bride-to-be demanded that she sew her wedding dress, June thankfully accepted the difficult but cleaner task.

“I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.”
Revelation 3:18 KJV
