Home Again

So I am finally home...and it feels wonderful. I know that my bed is going to feel great!

We had a great trip, though it rained everywhere we went. It rained the entire time that we were in Kentucky, so i really didn't get many pictures. oh well.

We came through 5 states today. We started out in West Virginia, then Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and finally Virginia. These past three weeks went by very fast. and I can hardly believe that it is almost November. This year is almost over.

That's it for now

Urgent Prayer Request

Please pray for my adopted grandma, Donna Hartman. We just found out today that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. We don't know yet what kind, or any other details. Please be praying 1. that it is localized 2. that she will have peace about the surgery and 3. that the doctors get everything. I would really appreciate if you'd keep this special lady in your prayers, and I know she would too.

On the Road Again...

Yes, you read that correctly, we are leaving in the morning (more than likely VERY early :-( ) for three weeks! We will do a re-enactment in Kentucky, a revival in Ohio, and just a Sunday thing in Western Virginia. I am looking forward to the trip, cause we'll get to see some friends that we only get to see once a year. It definitely makes you appreciate your friendship! All of the places that we are going to are absolutely beautiful, and in the prime of Autumn, it will be perfect for picture taking.

I have finally gotten a card reader (thanks to my dad) and have uploaded 1,000 pictures, spanning back to July!!! So, I'll have some pictures to share when I get home.

I better run for now, cause I still have stuff to load. Let's hope that I don't forget anything, like my PJ's, which I have done before, and makes for an excellent excuse to go shopping!

God Bless, and till we meet again...

On my way to the post office this morning, I happened to look in my rear view mirror, and what did I see? A Sheriff's car right behind me! My heart did a little flip flop, and I slowed my speed, cause I really had not been paying attention, and all of a sudden I became the world's best, and most responsible driver! I came to a stop at the intersection, put on my turn signal, and looked both ways before proceeding with caution. I let out a little sigh of relief when I saw that he went the other direction. Why is it that we only take caution in our driving when there is a police officer right behind us? Even when the officer is not there, God is, and we should strive to do our best not only in driving, but in everything that we do in this life, to please Him. This reminds me of a story from the Children's Book of Virtues, called, Someone Sees You. It is about a man who decided to steal from his neighbors fields, and takes his daughter along to stand watch, and to call out if anyone is watching. All of a sudden she calls out to her father, "someone sees you." The father looks around, when he sees noone, he continues what he was doing. After his daughter calls several time that "someone sees you" and he obviously does not see what she does, he asks, "Why in the world do you keep saying that someone sees me? I've looked everywhere, and I don't see anyone." when the child replies "Father, someone sees you from above." God is watching our every move, waiting to see what we will do, and how we will respond to things. So remember "someone sees you", and that someone is our Heavenly Father.


Happy Monday, everyone! I always have a difficult time motivating myself to get up and go on Monday mornings, probably because of the relaxing weekend! I certainly have a lot to do today. Mom and Dad are coming home today, and before they arrive, I have to clean the kitchen & bathroom, wash Pepper & Sweety, mop the bathroom, hallway, and kitchen, go to the post office, do laundry, do my work out...maybe I'll nix the work out!!!
Did y'all have a good day at church, yesterday? Pastor Ferrell preached two very good messages. The morning text was out of James 1:13-18. He has been preaching about Trials and Temptations. Yesterday's sermon was about temptation, and he gave 3 points on how to overcome temptations: 1. Take care not to blame God. Vs. 13 2. Take note of the real source. Vs. 14 3. Take hope in the saving God. Vs.17 Three things that he pointed out was that God sends trial, but NEVER leads anyone to temptation, It is impossible for God to lead someone to evil and being tempted is not a sin, succumbing to the temptation is. The evening message was out of Acts 3:1-21. He has been preaching on Sunday nights about how to reach others outside of our church, and encouraging us to go witnessing. Last night he gave a few examples on some outreach opportunities.
Well I hope that everyone has a blessed day, and safe travels to work. God Bless!

Here are some of my pictures from Canada. The top one is Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian side, during the laser show. The second one is both falls. The third is horseshoe again (can you see the little speck in the water? It's the Maid of the Mist!) And the last one was this really cool restaurant. You had to ride a car all the way to the top!

Kristin and I at the Battle of Gettysburg.

First Post!

Hello! This is my first post, of many to come(I hope!). I love reading other peoples blogs, and it looked like so much fun that I have decided to start my own(after the persuasion of one of my friends!) I have named it Katherine's Adventures because I travel a lot, so hopefully this will help all of you stay in contact, or at least know where I am.

I can hardly believe that it is now October. The summer went way too fast, but it was so much fun. After the Gettysburg re-enactment I went home with my friend Kelly, and spent a week with her family. We had way too much fun, and took a TON of pictures! I even was able to go to Canada (for the first time) and see Niagara Falls. It was awesome, and the falls are beautiful. I spent most of the time thinking to myself "I can't believe I'm in another country!" At the end of the week, Kelly and I flew back to Virginia, and spent another week together. We had a blast, and hopefully we can do again! At the end of July we went to Salvo, NC, in the Outer Banks, for a vacation. My adopted grandparents rented an awesome beach house, one lot back from the beach, and invited us to come for the whole week. While we were there, we went to Kill Devil Hills to see the Wright Brothers National Park. It was so cool to see where the first four flights took place. We took the ferry over to Ocracoke Island one day, and spent the whole afternoon just walking all over the island, and shopping. On the last evening at the beach, we all went to see the "Lost Colony" drama, in Manteo. It was a really good production, and we thoroughly enjoyed it, except for all of the mosquitoes! We came home thoroughly relaxed, and very refreshed.

Mom and Dad have done some traveling by themselves, while I stay home, and try to keep things in order, and Ben is off working. It's been nice to be home more, but I still love traveling!

On Wednesday, Mom, Dad and I are going on our last trip of the season. We will do our last re-enactment in Kentucky, then go to a supporting church in Ohio for a revival, and then to a church in West Virginia. By the time we get home it will be late October.

Well I think that's it for now. Hopefully I can post some pictures soon!
