Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Glorious Sunflower

"Praise be to His glorious name forever;

may the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen and amen. Psalm 72:19

I am enjoying my garden so much (I plan to post pictures of it soon).

I was born in Kansas, and even though I live in Texas, I still feel all good Kansas born children should have sunflowers in their garden. They are such happy flowers, don't you think?

I planted sunflower seeds in my watermelon patch.

Sunday morning this beauty was in full bloom! Delight!

I had to snap a picture of it as soon as we got home from worship.
With splendor, it just seemed to shout:

"let the whole earth be filled with His glory!"

I want the same splendor in my life...I want my life and my family's life to be filled with His awesome glory. Do others see His glory in you? Do others see His glory in me?

Oh, how I pray that they do.

Have a blessed day letting God display His glory in you today.

Hey Kristi!

Thanks for your encouragement on my blog! I am also going to be a high school teacher! I am totally ready to be there, making a difference in the lives of the teens in my community! Although, it will take me the next five years to finish! I am so excited for classes to start in August! I would love to keep in touch with you and your journey this next year! How fun that you only have one year left!

Thanks again for the encouragement!
