I can’t see the whole staircase…

…but I don’t have to, God knows and He tells me in Jeremiah 29:11  “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope.”

Today is the first step in what I believe is part of God’s plan for me.  I don’t know what is to come, but my faith and trust in God are the compass for the next step on the journey of my life.

the first step - blog 1 wordpress Blogging has never been a dream of mine, but through faith, prayer, and tuning my ears to my savior, I trust I am following His plan.

My name is Kimberly.  I am almost 47 years of age.  I currently reside in Northern Virginia with my closest and dearest friend, my husband, Paul.  We recently celebrated our 23rd anniversary and are so thankful for our 3 greatest blessings, the 3 beautiful children/young adults God entrusted to our care.  We are the proud parents of 2 young men, ages 21 and 18, and 1 young lady, age 17.  For the better part of 21+ years, my children have been and still are my true labor of love, they are my heart, walking outside of my chest in the form of 3 young adult human beings.  I love being a wife and mother.  It is truly the only thing I really knew I wanted to do from a very young age.

I don’t have a college degree.  I know the world says they are important and I understand why.  But being a wife and mother is my school and my learning experience in the college of life, and most importantly, in my life of faith.

I am a Christian, a humble servant of God, doing my best to live a life pleasing to Him.  I am an artist. I am a compassionate, caring, giving, kind, and loving woman.  I pray that this place for me to share my life and faith from my heART, through my words and art, will be a blessing for you, inspire you, touch, and and maybe even plant a seed of faith in your heart.

This blogging thing is all new to me, so please be patient as I learn and grow in the process.

Peace and blessings,

Kimberly

 

Both Feet & Two Weeks In…Back at the Beginning

This is the post excerpt.

I jumped into this blog with both feet on a leap of faith.  I don’t really know exactly how all of this works but I am pretty sure that this is may be what you see first when you look at my site!  So, two weeks in, I am taking a stab at making it worth your time by sharing how and why this all started.

I have been diligent over the past few months, setting aside time each day for time alone with God.  It is in that time that he has been calling me to this blogging journey.  He kept telling me, in my heart, “Kimmy, you have something to share, trust me and I will take care of the rest.”

PrayingGod has given us gifts and talents he wants us to use to glorify Him.  He blessed me with creativity and a compassionate heart and put me here to share them both.  I’m trusting God to guide me on this journey as I have never considered myself a writer, and honestly I still don’t.  I just believe in my heart that this is what I’m supposed to be doing.

My prayer is that God speaks through me and uses my heart and creative nature for His Glory! AMEN!
