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.

O Summer, Where Have You Gone?

I am still in denial that this is already August and that school is just around the corner, which means summer is almost over. {sigh!} Where did it go?

Don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to stepping into my first official classroom and I am excited about the students that I will have the blessing of teaching this year. But, it always seems that there are To-do lists a mile long before school begins, doesn't it?

Thank you for all of your prayers while we visited with the neurosurgeon and neurologist. Rachel felt very comfortable through it all. I was in awe that God lovingly helped her go to sleep during the very loud and long MRI. The technician was incredible. She asked Rachel what music she liked to listen to and Rachel replied, "Contemporary Christian." The tech replied that she would try to get KLTY on the radio but it often did not work in the MRI room. Amazingly, God blessed us with a perfect connection to the station.

Our family enjoys Air-1 too and we have been so blessed with their posted verses for the day. If you missed them, here they are:

Air-1 Verse of the Day Archive
13 August Verse of the Day:
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
1 Peter 5:7 NLT

12 August Verse of the Day:
Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.

10 August Verse of the Day:
For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
2 Corinthians 4:17 NLT

9 August Verse of the Day:

Psalm 38:15 NLT

8 August Verse of the Day:
I cried out to the Lord, and he answered me from his holy mountain.
Psalm 3:4 NLT

I love the timeliness of God. Just when we need a little encouragement, He comes through in a mighty way over and over again. It's nice to remember that we are not in any situation alone but that He is with us and wherever we find ourselves, He always has our best interest in mind and He does work all things together for His good purpose.

My Streams in the Desert devotion today reminded me that no matter what comes our way, it must go through the Lord first. The devotion continues, "Isn't it glorious to know that no matter how unjust something may be, even when it seems to come from satan himself, by the time it reaches us it is God's will for us and will ultimately work to our good?...We live fascinating lives if we are living in the center of God's will" And isn't that where we all desire to be....in the very center of His will for our lives.

Don't feel bad, if you lived here the kids are already back in school! LOL
I saw them walking toward the bus stop the other day and I was like WOW, it seems so early!
God is good my friend and is watching over your family!

I am so glad she went to sleep during the MRI. I pray this will be behind her soon.

I haven't even enjoyed summer yet and it is almost gone. Oh dear.

Praying for you as you begin the school year! That's going to be on my prayer list this week...the teachers preparing the rooms and gearing up for the new year.

God bless you!
