Sick and Lovin' it!!

I came down with a head cold and I've never been so thankful!  After a super healthy year, I was worried about getting sick before the flight with so much going around.  In perfect timing, it looks like I caught it and will be rid of it before we leave.  Perfect! :)  God relieves even our smallest fears - like having to use sandpaper tissues vs. my beloved "Puffs," lol!  (if you had a nose the size of mine, you'd understand!)  

I've also had time to read, "Kisses from Katie," a terrific book about an 18 year old girl who took off for Uganda with a desire to help the hurting. 

Now 22 years old, she is the adoptive mother of 13 girls, and has wisdom beyond her years.  It's the amazing story of what can happen when someone takes Jesus's words literally vs. just making Bible studies of them.  It is pitiful that at nearly 50, this young woman is teaching ME, but better late than never.  BUY THE BOOK TODAY and watch her testimony here.

Blessings, Kim


  1. I've been following Katie's blog for a couple years now. What an inspiration, huh?! Do you know if her book covers more than her blog?

  2. I don't know, Karyn. I only heard about her recently and was so blown away by her incredible work there. It's worth buying the book to loan out to others - it's such an incredible story. :) My heart broke for her when she had to give Jane up.

  3. Kim, I hope you feel better soon!

  4. Thank you for sharing about Katie's book. I ordered it today. I'm planning on reading it on our flight to China. It won't be long now!
    I hope you feel better soon.~Tina

  5. I feel better already! Thanks for the well wishes. :)

  6. You are hilarious!! I'm so glad you're sick!! (Never thought I'd be writing that to someone I want only the best for :)) We love Katie and Amazima around here! I want to read her book once we get through our adoption books :)

  7. Been sick here too but I think I'm about to beat it! Better to be sick here than there! BTDT!

    Ready to gooooooooooo???? I am!!! Just sad that we will both be there but won't see each other. We will have to get together after we are both settled back here in the good old USA!
