I am blessed to have known of the beautiful Kara Faith Palmer.
She was only here for 7 brief weeks but in that time she touched and blessed so many lives with her presence. Knowing she existed brought a smile to so many faces, mine included. I enjoyed hearing of her daily triumps and seeing her gorgeous smile in the pictures her family shared almost daily. Seeing her, knowing that she existed, brought joy to my heart.
Last Friday, God took precious little Kara home to dance with him in the Sunrise, to live the life He wished for her. In her short time she had met her purpose of life, to share with the world the truth of God and his immense Love.
In knowing Kara and her family I have learned that Love indeed exists. They have shown me that no matter what God hands to you, you presevere, you take the good moments and you hold on to cherish them. God gives and he takes away in the blink of an eye. We are none an exception to this. I am thankful to have been able to know of Kara. She has taught me to love my children more than anything and never take for granted their presence in my life. For any one of them could be called Home to dance along with Kara in the Sunrise.
She was a Blessed Angel from the moment she was created, a true Gift from Heaven and our wonderful Creator. I am thankful that God gave me the chance to know the Sweet Kara Faith and her family. I will never forget this precious girl or her loving Mother and the lessons they have provided.
My heart is saddened for their loss but I rejoice in the joy of Kara’s Sunrise dance with her Savior. May she rest in Peace, always.
I’m a little behind with this post which was supposed to come a few days ago but our littlest angel was sick so it couldn’t be helped. Thankfully, it was just a little cold and she’s so much better now.
During this reading of the Busy Mom’s Bible, I reviewed the Reflect & Pray section of the Creator. First, I reread the 1 minute lesson on God’s Creation of the Earth and then I read the Reflect & Pray to build upon what I had read.
God created EVERYTHING. He created the Earth. He created the moon and Sun. He created you and me and everything living thing. His imagination and creativity is an amazing thing to behold.
He created my beautiful children. He sculpted them into the gorgeous little beings they are. He gave them their personalities. Winston, my shy, skittish boy. Emmalee, my stubborn, outgoing social Princess. Laycie, my queen bee, who gets her point across rather quickly when she’s got her mind set upon it. God gave them each these qualities for his own wonderful purpose.
As for me, God gave me to ability to love these children. He gave me the creativity to design for them fun rooms that fit their personalities. He allowed me the artistic ability to photograph these Angels, somewhat decently, to share their uniqueness with the world. He gave me the gift of being able to artistically paint when I put my mind to it. He blessed me with the opportunity and brains to be able to teach my sweet babies daily in our home. I’m truly blessed to have such an imaginative Father, who shaped me into a creative person, much like himself. His love for me causes my Love for Him to shine through and to grow and build everyday. It flows into my children and out of them into their little worlds.
God’s Love is immense and infinite. Truly we are blessed to have His Love and to share in that Love with Him.
I’m thankful He is the creator of all and that He chose to create me and the wonderful life I am living.
Today was the first of my 6 week reading experience with the Busy Mom’s Bible from Zondervan.
I opened the Bible and read from the first 1 minute Thought Starter, where I was introduced to God, the Creator of All, through Genesis 1:1 – “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
The word to carry with me today, and until I move on in my study of this verse, is created. What does this mean?
Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary lists created definition as 1) to bring into existance, and 2) to produce through imaginative skill.
In the aspect of God’s creation, I think this definition definitely fits. God indeed brought into existance, through imaginative skill, a world like no other, giving us all life, just as He had planned it.
I look forward to going into more depth with this lesson tomorrow.

I am blessed by God.
Simply and wonderfully, I am blessed by God.
A few months ago, I would never have guessed that I would be where I am now. Happier than ever, walking in God’s light and love.
A few months ago, my children were still living with my ex and my Mom in Spartanburg. I did not know if I’d ever see their sweet faces again. I didn’t know if I’d ever kiss them or hold their little hands, tuck them into bed or play with them again. Each day I prayed that God would see fit to place us back together again.
A few months ago, I was alone. I had no one. No one that is, except God. He was with me. He was always there, walking beside me, at times carrying me through. I did not know where he was leading me but I followed His path, guided by His hand, through my trials.
A few months ago, I had only a mustard seed of Faith, and that mustard seed was the smallest of seeds there could have possibly been. But I held onto that Faith and I didn’t let go, like a child holding onto her father’s finger.
I prayed. I turned towards God. At times, I turned away but He and His immense Love always led me back when I strayed. My Father was always there guiding me, showing me His path.
Today, I’m here, where he wanted me to be.
Today, I have my beautiful babies again.
Today, I am homeschooling them again.
Today, I am finding myself and I am finding that I have never been happier than I am at this moment.
God knew all along where he was leading me. He placed me onto His path, time and time again. He led me forth, through trials that made me stronger and molded me into the person that He wanted me to become.
God has blessed me, time and again. He has shown me His Love. My Faith in Him has grown and has brought me more love than I could have ever imagined. I am thankful, truly thankful for all the blessings I have been given.
Simply and wonderfully, I am BLESSED by God.
