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 Reunion

I realize that I have been MIA around my blog lately.  I've been so busy and I've barely been home.  Our family attended a wedding this past weekend in Grapevine (I have so many pictures to post).  The bride was the flower girl in our wedding.  Yes, we are getting that old!  Oiy!  It was a special celebration.

After the weekend wedding, the girls and I traveled home, quickly unpacked, did laundry, and in less than 12 hours later were on our way to Glorious Glorieta for Youth Camp.

It was a wonderful week.  We enjoyed the cool, crisp 50 degree mornings and all that God had planned for us.  This morning we left Glorieta on the church bus and received word from my mother that my precious Grandmother went home to be with the Lord this morning. 

It was a long bus ride home, bittersweet as my mind reflected on lots of memories from childhood and even adulthood of memories with my Grandmother.  I know that I am a blessed granddaughter to have had my Grandmother with me for so long...she had the blessing of getting to know her Great-Granddaughters and I will always be so thankful for that.

My heart is full and happy, and sad at the same time.  She was my last living grandparent and I will miss her.  But, my heart is also joyful at the thought of all that she is experiencing in Heaven.  She is getting to see her Saviour face to face, and reunited with my Grandpa, the love of her life, who she has not seen for the last almost 19 years.  I can just imagine the smile on his face!  I know my Grandmother is telling my precious Granny and Pappaw, and my dear Aunt Faye all about what we have been doing and all about the girls...there is so much to tell. 

What a glorious reunion is taking place today!  I am thankful for the life she led, for her absolute faith and love for the Lord and her family~I have a wonderful heritage of faith and so much to be thankful for.

Here are some pictures from this past Christmas that I will forever cherish.  If you are a follower of my blog, you probably remember them from this past post:

We are home unpacking from camp, doing laundry, and getting ready to pack again. Please, remember our family as we travel back to Wichita, Kansas and as we celebrate my Grandmother's life.

That is bitter sweet. I wanted to cry just thinking of the reunion between her and her husband.
It's so much easier knowing that a loved one is going to Heaven!!
Oh and I remember loving that photo of her playing the organ. Priceless!
Have a great night my friend.

I will be praying for God's comfort to surround your family. I can't wait for the day when we are reunited with our loved ones who have gone ahead---to see them healthy and whole---to experience an eternity of worship! What a glorious day that will be indeed!!!!
