Kim is the latest in a long line of fellow believers that the Lord has
seen fit to put in my path!! She's bubbly, vivacious and totally
talented!! I knew the first time I read one of her notes on Fbook that I
had to "get" her for us here on the porch!! Her down-to-earth writing
style combined with her 'love'em like Jesus' attitude is gonna make
her a fave here...read & see!!
WELCOME SUMMER 2013 !!
Ah, the sweet scent of Summer. It's the melody of ice cream trucks, lawn
mowers running just before the sun sets & echoes of children laughing
are heard out doors. Vibrant towels are spotted hanging in the sun to dry
as hints of burning charcoal become part of the atmosphere. We seek
adventure with a spirit that desires to play. When I lay in the sun and feel
the warms rays on my face my mind travels back to Summers long ago.
When a day was not complete without grass stains. Jumping through a
sprinkler was the most entertaining activity in the world. Where street
lights would lead our way home for dinner and the hardest decision was
what color popsicle to have.
Rocking chairs on the porch are put to use again and trees wave their
leaves in excitement for new stories to be told as children climb their
branches. Being an adult takes a back seat as we yell cannon ball and
jump into the pool.
Welcome Summer 2013!! Time to dance to the rhythm of your season.
Our columnists LOVE your feedback....it's both
educational and encouraging to them so
let 'er rip!!!
Writing has always been a passion in my heart,
it helps me illustrate all the beauty I see in life
with Jesus as my navigator. Turned into a dog
lover when my husband brought our Son with
paws home over a year ago. His name is
Kramer and he awakened a place in my heart I
never knew was sleeping.
My favorite destination is lost in laughter & I'm
thankful my loved ones take me there frequently.
“The best remedy for those who are afraid,
lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere
where they can be quiet, alone with the
heavens, nature and God. Because only then
does one feel that all is as it should be.”
KIM'S KOLUMN !!!

Remember to put "KIM" in the subject
Kim, you have certainly captured the spirit of that time when life
was not only simpler, freer and more innocent, but also and
especially when it at least "seemed" safer. The Lord does not
protect us any less today, but the days gone by just seemed to be
so much more carefree. Thanx for the reminder. Uncle Carle
God's given you an amazing talent, Kim....the way you
write isdown-to-earth & real!! Touches people's
hearts without beingintimidating! You don't sent
folks running for the dictionary to look up 50 cent
words....you send 'em running for the Kleenex!
Can't wait to read more!!
