My husband and I both work too much. That is a given. On a given day I will get home about 5:30 and he will get home about 6:00. I have supper going and we normally eat around 6:30 while watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Then one by one we go put our plates in the sink and one by one we each pick up our laptops and he begins to put in more hours and then I do the same. It helps me stay semi-caught up because there is always some small “fire” to put out when I get there. Freddie probably worked close to 70 hours last week, he is a salaried employee, no we are not rolling in that time and a half pay. Somewhere in all that about once a month he has been working on a patio i designed and hopefully we can complete by 2011. I have helped put down stone and marked stone where they needed to be cut. I have hammered dents into stone so it wouldn’t have a flat line cut mark. But in the end, we can look at each other and say this is a job well done. We can have the pride you get when you finish a project that you put your heart in to. Think of that here on earth and think how you feel when someone compliments your work…………..now think how much more to hear the words “Well done my good and faithful servant”. I want to hear that from God. How cool would that be? So in the 8-5 job remember that we are here to exalt God and enlarge God’s family. The person people see of you today at work could be the closest thing to Jesus they will ever know. I know that like you, I want to hear that Well done, Kim, my good and faithful servant. Go out and serve your God today!
Direction February 21, 2010
Do you ever just not know where you are going? What you are gonna do? Which way to turn? That is where God comes in for you. He knows the groans of our heart…when we don’t know what to pray. The hard part for us is just letting him have that full control. We give it to him….we take it back, etc. etc. etc. Everything in the Bible is true, he will provide. Lord, help my unbelief!
Snowday, Monday February 15, 2010
Well I’ve never been a fan of cold weather, and I will have to say I have had my fill of it this season – it’s not anywhere close to the ice storm of last year, but it seems like every other day we are getting snow. The road are clear tonight, but we got another inch last night. To quote many people on the internet, “Al Gore, where is all that global warming”. I guess in Canada right now. The Olympics are on tonight and they have had to postpone or delay some competitions because of condition of the track or slopes. Let’s send Canada our snow!!
I love sports. Athletic competitions of all kinds. Freddie and I got to go see UK play Arkansas a few weeks ago. 16th row behind the bench. I loved every minute of it! I get swept up in the emotion of the athletes too. Does anyone else’s eyes tear up and get a lump in their throat when scores are being announced or national anthems (of any country) are being played for the athlete. LOVE IT!!
Loved the Pebble Beach Golf Tournament this past weekend. My son played golf in high school with JB Holmes. Love to follow JB’s tournaments. Just a sports nut I guess.
Hope you had a good Monday.

Door Decorating 2 December 24, 2008
Well, it is quite amazing how a group can make anything difficult. Here are the rest of the doors in our contest at work. The judging was on Tuesday. People were laughing and carrying on during the voting that morning. Some girls wore signs that said “vote for door #___ and you MAY win a trip to florida”; others were offering similar “SILLY” things. We were laughing and joking, so I said “well, vote for me and I will get your paycheck done early”. The initial voting came in and I won. However, someone declared that I had tampered with the voting with an unfair advantage…..get real people and get over it! It is not like they weren’t going to get paid before their regular payday anyway (Thursdays – which happens to be Christmas and we are closed) Well, there was not enough Christmas spirit in me to be jolly, so I just took my door out of the contest. So, you might say, I was not one of the ones who brought JOY to my own office that day (Door #3 on the first post was my door). We were being silly. Hmph. Okay, so here are the rest of the doors. The blue snow scene won.
Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.
