I Am Reaping A Harvest

I Am Reaping A Harvest! The Lord Is Faithful. He Saw Me On My Knees Years Ago.

It's wonderful to see the godly choices children make when their heads and hearts are in God's Word. Love this girl, and love to see her seeking the Lord and desiring God's presence in her life. I am so happy she met Blake. He is a wonderful young man. They have been dating for over a year. 
I am reaping a harvest of good things! God is answering the prayers I prayed when this daughter of mine, Victoria, was just tiny. I began praying for her future boyfriend and eventually, a husband when she was first born. Thank you Lord, for Your faithfulness.
 "Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I trust your commands." Psalm 119:66 and "May I wholeheartedly follow your decrees, that I may not be put to shame." Psalm 119:88

There Once Was A Girl


She was a small town girl with big dreams. My mother-in-law, Vivian loved shopping and glamour.  She loved make-up and high heels.
 One day she and her college friend decided to go to town and get their photo taken. Here is her glamour shot. This portrait hung on the wall near her husband's side of the bed their whole married life. When she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease the picture hung in my home for awhile.
After Vivian married she worked as a school teacher for several years. She taught business and home economics classes for about ten years. They began to have children and moved out west to run a dairy farm.  Her life was not so glamorous during the farming days. She had to milk cows twice a day. I hope to find a picture of her with the cows to show you soon. In later years, she went back to substitute teaching, and enjoyed the lipstick and fancy clothes again. The Lord gave her a daughter, daughter-in-law, and three granddaughters to dress up and go shopping with. I love my mother-in-law. I am thankful she still remembers us right now.

Last month this treasured portrait of Vivian went to its new home with Kara (left), her daughter, and granddaughter (purple top). Our family said goodbye to the photo. These are the new glamour girls, her daughter and three granddaughters.
Blessings, Kathi
