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.

Hope in Her Happily Ever After

"I know what I am planning for you, says the Lord. I have good plans for you, not plans to hurt you. I will give you hope and a good future." Jeremiah 29:11 NCV

I told my mom yesterday morning that I just love it when the Lord is not silent. I know that He still works even in the midst of the silence, but there is so much comfort when He speaks. And wow is He speaking!

I explained in yesterday's post that I felt the Lord was encouraging my heart to hope again. Even if this becomes a new normal for our family, there is always hope...hope for the dreams we have for our daughter to be realized one day....hope for complete healing ....hope for the headache pain to go far, far away....

Imagine my surprise when a special card signed by "Someone who cares" arrived in my mailbox just a few hours later. The words read, "You are a daughter of the King, a holy princess, the bride of Christ! That means no matter what your story might be right now, the ending is still happily ever after!" And I cried. Thank you, Father for confirming in my heart, that I need to allow myself to hope again. Her future is in Your hands.

Kristi...I am a big fan of reading your blog and I am sharing in the sadness and fright about your daughters condition. This post gave me chills...the sweet note without a signature...what a precious gift for you to receive at just the right time. Keep the faith that your sweet girl is in the grip of Gods Grace...and He will heal her...because He loves her.
