Welcome

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.

Thankful Thursday 8/21/08




Today, I'm thanking God for our summer...for the special memories...joy and laughter...lazy days...going to movies...trips...adventures in teaching Rachel how to drive...picking up Hannah from basketball camp...hearing about Rachel's first mission trip to Arlington...the decision to stay at our home church...new blogging friends...A+ in Industrial Psychology...back to school shopping...watching the Olympics together...gardening in our vegetable garden...water gun fights...shrimp boils...wii tournaments...guitar hero...sweet memories to last a lifetime!


School supplies and new school clothes have been purchased, which means it's almost that time. Part of me is ready, part of me is not. Time for busy schedules and new adventures with the Lord. I'm thankful that this is my final Fall semester as an undergrad. It's my senior year in college-part of steps of faith in returning to what God called me to do years ago. Rachel begins her sophomore year and Hannah start junior high. Be still my heart!


Oh, there is so much to be thankful for. Father, thank you for the blessing of summer and for special memories with my sweet daughters and husband. Thank you for this season of rest. May we bring you much honor and glory this school year! You alone know what this school year holds. We trust you all the way. You lead and we will follow. I'm so thankful to be called your child. Thank you for the privilege and joy of being a wife and mother. You are so good!
