Well, I have yet to figure out how to get these pics to line up the way I want them to. Anyway, I just wanted to share my excitement for the day. Coming home from the dentist today, I was greeted by my girls squawking around about ducks. We live in the desert with no water features in our yard so I really had no idea what they would be talking about. Then my husband came out and proudly told me how he saved these babies from certain death. Mama was gravely injured, probably hit by a car and yet she brought her babies to our house. Her effort reminds me that we are sorta like those babies. Trouble could be coming our way, change can be on the horizon. Our Father always delivers us to a place where we can weather the storm in the refuge of His loving arms!!!

I was nothing short of amazed!! Check out my cute babies holding hers!! We did find a rehab shelter for them thankfully, as I did not want to bring them on vacation!!

This Is Real!!!

Relationships at their best!! Face to face!!

Good Bye Twitter!!

This is hard. I have asked so many of my friends to connect with me through Twitter and now I am leaving you. A very wise women has recently admitted that her relationship with Twitter and Facebook has been very unhealthy. To much time was spent reading posts and the other related emails and games. She mentioned that the time she spent online was precious time lost from her family. I admire her courage to disconnect from this cyber-world and reconnect to the world that really matters.

My reasons for wanting out are that I am not in love with this way of communicating. Messages between friends and strangers that are only words leave out so much information. Sometimes the most telling part of communication is the facial expression or the tone of ones voice. I feel like I am not only getting only half the message but also half the truth. I have often felt that I am missing the love half. My feelings have been hurt from numerous remarks that could be considered sly or catty and I feel that many times if the other half of the message had been witnessed, the feelings could have been spared. Once valued friendships have reached almost toxic levels. In an effort to let love abound, I feel I need to let truth abound. The only way to do that is to gain the whole truth. I want REAL relationships. I want to heal those relationships that have been damaged by misleading tweets both by my fault and the fault of others.

When I die, I want people gathered around my graveside. Not a bunch of tweets on my screen.

Blessings and Love, Kim O
