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.

Thanks be to God...Great Things He has Done!


"In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May Your unfailing love rest upon us, O LORD, even as we put our hope in You." Psalm 33:21, 22


"For the Mighty One has done great things for me; And holy is His name." Luke 1:49

Praise the Lord, great things He has done!

We are just beside ourselves with absolute joy.

The Pediatric Neurosurgeon is exactly who we hoped and prayed for. He was so kind and compassionate to Rachel and to us and so full of wisdom in this area.

Right now, we are not looking at surgery for Rachel. Hallelujah! While it may have to be an option down the road, he wants us to try a new medication to help with her severe headaches.

He is going to keep a close eye on our daughter and we are very thankful. If this medicine doesn't work then we will try something else.

The doctor wants Rachel to see a neurologist that specializes in headaches for this congenital disorder. He cautioned us that there are only a few of these specialists in Texas and that we may have to wait a while before we could get an appointment. The next available appointment is in late May but he told us that he would speak face to face with his colleague and see if we could get in earlier.

By the time we got to the receptionist desk, and unbeknownst to the doctor, we have a much earlier appointment in March. Isn't God good?! Isn't that just like Him!

So many questions were answered, the diagnosis was confirmed, and our hearts were relieved to know this is the doctor God had in mind for Rachel all along.

If ever there was a doubt in Rachel's precious mind, and there really hasn't been, of how dearly loved she is by the Lord, He has shown Himself to her and to us over and over again. He has revealed His great love in the big and the small this week.

I am overwhelmed by His great love, care, and faithfulness. There is no god like our God!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for your prayers. We felt them all day long.

I have a few other things that I would love to share with you but for now
I'm off to hug my baby girl and crawl up on the couch and maybe watch a good movie with my family. I think we will all sleep much better tonight.


Rejoicing,
Kristi

Hi Kristi,

After your mention of Texas in this post, I read your profile. I noticed that Chris and Diane Machen are some of your favorite musicians. They went to Baylor with my boss and are clients of ours. They are such a really neat family. They are really talented, too. I guess I'm wondering where in Texas you live...maybe close to me. You can email me at Karen@gkseminars.com if you'd like.

Still praying for you guys and praising God for His showers of blessing to you.

Rejoicing with you!
