Journey


Journey
My favorite beach: Leo Carillo. It's just up from Zuma on PCH. I took this photograph 10 years ago in 1997, for a highschool class project. Clint's brother recently asked me to make a copy of it for him, so I had it scanned digitally. Every time I go to this beach I look to see if the sun is shining through the rock, and I've never seen it like this again. This year would be my highschool 10 year reunion, pretty scary. So much has changed since 1997...I was just thinking my life is a bit like this photo since then. "Well I'm not who I was when I took my first step, and I'm clinging to the promise that You're not through with me yet" One of my favorite quotes from Ginny Owens (a blind Christian singer) about how the Lord changes us and molds us into His image...and that He who began a good work is faithful to complete it. But we have to take the steps necessary and work out our salvation with fear and trembling. 10 years ago I never considered missions. 10 years ago I had no idea who I was going to marry. 10 years ago I was complacent in my walk with the Lord. 10 years ago I had wild dreams about what I would be doing 10 years from now. The Lord has been so faithful to me in where He has brought me, and I'm glad He gave me the desires and strength to follow His will, so that He could bring me on this journey to where I am now....about to be a mom! :)

Kim,
What an awesome entry this was. I am so excited to see you as a Mom. God is so good to bless you in many ways - the biggest one - being His. I am very blessed to have you in my life and I enjoyed the brief conversation we had about ministry. We just accepted a Student Ministries position in Carson City, Nevada and are going to be up there in July. New baby, graduating and moving - the Lord is at major work. Love you Kim-Kim. -daisy
