Accidentally on Purpose

Scooping up the camera, hoping to capture my growing 5 year old in a mega moment of glory, a beautiful sight distracted me. What I discovered was free. I found myself strolling around observing last years backyard bargains that had transformed themselves into thrilling treasures.

Adventure that began at last years local Garage Sales gave me simple pleasure that was too big to measure.

How could I be so moved by plants in curious pots? The pictures don't satisfy you I know.

The plants that were given to me are called, "Live Forever." They will grow in dirt (literally)and will be content even in full sun. To transplant, all it takes is for the plant stem to be pushed into the soil. No root is necessary to grow.

The plant containers are finds that were so little in price that I don't recall the cost.

The "Live Forever" plants survived through the freezing Winter. No watering from me did they require as the Spring rain supplied what was necessary.

What a beautiful little corner of the world God has surrounded me with.

You Say Goodbye and I Say Hello

How about can you hear me now? Personally, I like the Beatles version of Hello Goodbye better. Summer has begun for me. I can be KimNOW...

Up All Night?

Got lots of time to sleep just can't get there...tossed, turned, thought. After a good hour and a half I called it quits. Guess, I have some important things to talk over with God...This is what he said...
John 14:27
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
2 Peter 1:5–7
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.
I'll be working on writing His Living Word in my heart and on my lips!

Claim Your Space

We made it to the mountains and staked our claim. Obstacles presented themselves, but to rise above them was extremely satisfying. Our first family ski trip was a success.

The drive to Colorado was a challenge. It was supposed to be eight hours and ended being thirteen. I-70 was actually closed because of ice and blizzard conditions. We had to choose a different route. Our car was full of prayers for safety. As terrible as the weather conditions were, we felt as if we were inside a bubble that could not be burst.

Once in Colorado Springs, we set up camp with a real sense of ownership of the moment together. We were tired puppies, and Peterson AFB was a welcoming site. We knew our hotel room would have a kitchen and there would be a Commissary just minutes away. More adventures were just around the corner. Our expectations were high for what tomorrow would bring.

We came across a dog park, and Bella learned to enjoy the snow. Bearen got used to the idea of being on a leash. Sam, Will and Max said hello to an old friend -- the hiking trails found in the Garden of the Gods.

The snow-packed mountains of Monarch were calling us. Kent and I jumped out of our warm bed to grab our boys and head up to the slopes. So much had changed since we had been up at that elevation. Skiing now required helmets, and parents were frowned upon if their offspring's eyes were not covered with goggles. Our boys did not disapoint us. They took to skiing just like we wanted.

The boys left Colorado looking forward to the next ski adventure. Kent and I were relieved to see that our love for the mountains would be passed down. And, along the way, our family had also witnessed the true power found in prayer.
