God is good.









Long time, no post. Sorry about that. The past few weeks have been jammed with things to do. And it's not going to get any less busy. I still want to blog, but maybe once or twice a week instead.

I recently went back and scan-read through my blog. I know, I was just saying I didn't have enough time for blogging but I downloaded every. single. picture that was on my blog, since if anything did happen to my blog, I would still have all those photos.

Anyway, I realize how much I've changed in two years. It's astonishing. I'm  really not the same person at all. Three years ago all I really talked about was giveaways and photo contests. It's not just on my blog, either. I feel like I see everything differently than I did a year ago -- maybe it's because I'm getting older, maybe because Christ is changing me. Two years ago I didn't know what love really meant. I thought I knew what it meant. But I just didn't understand it. I knew God loved me. But now it's just . . . all becoming new.

Believe me, I'm still far from perfect. Ha, very far. God still has lots of work to do inside of me, but it helps to see how much He's done already. And I have to constantly remind myself that it is not me who is changing my life. It's God. And even when I don't feel like praising Him, or feel like He's there, I just have to sit back and praise Him no matter what I feel. I have to trust, to be thankful for what He's given me.

This was a very off topic post, but it's what I've learned over the past few days, so I decided to write it. Hopefully I can post sometime later this week.

  1. ohmygosh, i am positively in love with the first picture. seriously girl, you should sell it. its AMAZING. :)

    and thank you for this post Kendra. I have a hard time keeping my focus on God, so this is what I needed to hear - that God loves me no matter what, and that I just need to praise Him more.

    Love,

  4. Jaw dropping pictures! The first is beautiful. You've got to move to Wisconsin now. :)

    Kendra!!! *hugs* If you didn't see it yourself - I would've told you. I remember when I first ran into you (Kendra's Krazy Krafts? Or something like that) and you're a completely different person now. This past year, your love for Christ has been extra apparent and it's so encouraging!

    I love sitting back and just watching your story unfold. It's amazing.

  11. Hello Kendra!

    This is Bethany, and I am teaming up with Grace to do a special birthday surprise for a blogger friend of ours. Miss Grace has asked me to contact you and make sure that you have sent out your part of the surprise {sorry, can't give many details for fear of the birthday girls figuring this out if she sees this :)} since we will need them asap to complete the surprise. If you have any questions or need to get a hold of me you can do so on my blogs contact page: www.giveawaysofblessing.blogspot.com But anyways if you could let me know when you send them out then that would be wonderful!

    Thanks!
    Bethany
