At this website you will find stories that…
Come from my heart to yours;
offer hope and encouragement;
and entertain and uplift you while glorifying God!

Author Kim Vogel Sawyer

Hello! It’s so good to see you. All the time I spend bringing to life my “imaginary friends” would be pointless were it not for you, my reader, so you truly are appreciated. As an author of inspirational Christian fiction, it is my goal to create stories that will edify God’s children and offer evidence of the hope we can all possess when we place our hearts and souls in God’s very capable hands. I’ve been asked…”Why fiction?” And the answer is simple: Even Jesus told stories to help His followers understand Who He was and His purpose for coming to earth. A story can draw one in and make an impact. Before I commit words to paper (or computer!), I spend time in God’s Word and in prayer. I believe my stories aren’t truly “mine,” but are a joint effort between myself and the God I serve. I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit. Make yourself at home! Sign the guestbook or send a friend by, if you like. And may God bless you muchly as you journey with Him!

In His love,

There is no greater stronghold than God’s love. His love is all-encompassing, all-wise, all-powerful, never-failing. We can trust Him to be with us today and tomorrow and all the tomorrows to come…right into eternity. Yes, because we live in a sinful world, the evil one’s darts will fire in our direction. But those darts are really aimed at the Savior we love and serve, not “us” personally. Take heart that no power of earth or hell can stand against the power of God. He WILL prevail! ...

Never leaves us or forsakes us. ❤️

Amen!

The girls and I went to Walmart for toothbrushes, and we noticed the school supplies are out. And what that means to me is OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD! Always a toothbrush, washcloth, and bar of soap; always a reusable water bottle, bowl, fork, and spoon. Always SCHOOL SUPPLIES, and then some fun tuck-ins. What's your "always" if you do Operation ChristMAS Child boxes?

(These aren't my boxes...they're from a church in Kentucky.)

Socks, comb, gloves, stickers.

Great ideas.

What good idea on the bowl! I will add that to my Operation Christmas child list! One year I was able to go to a processing center near the Dallas/Ft. Worth international Airport. It was life changing! A former box recipient, now grown was on hand to share his story.

I do older kids and I try to find some type of purse, small backpack or bag for them to carry their things in.

Along with some of the items you listed, I also send along coloring crayons and books, doll or truck, stuffed animal, bouncy ball, pencil with sharpener, and small picture books.

We’ve done them for years, too! Try to fit in an outfit, undies,socks, hair things for girls, combs, brushes, water bottle, school supplies, washcloth, bar of soap & toothbrush. Stuffed animal for each box.

My sweet Cody ❤️ my grandson loved to spread out the shoeboxes and take the bag of each items in each box. Then he rode with me to WLMB to deliver them for shipment. We made 12 to 15 every year. What a tremendous blessing 💜

I take my boxes to Dollar Tree and fill them up separating boys from girls. It's so much fun. I get my boxes from Hobby Lobby.

I collect toothbrushes and little things for the boxes all year. It is the one thing that really makes Christmas fun for me.

I like your idea about utensils and a bowl, I'm already doing the other things. I enjoy working in the processing center in Dallas. I try to do it every year and last year my sons were able to participate as well.

I always tuck in new socks. Already found some on clearance at Wal-Mart. Last year I got soccer balls with a pump for each one

This year I have been making jumpropes out of tshirts. So every box will have a jump rope! But i love packing baby dolls in boxes for little girls!

My daughter buys stuff all year for our shoeboxes. Some items are hard to find if you wait.

School supplies. Our church has the childrens church make up the boxes and asks church members to donate items.

I always do school supplies and a package of Hot Wheels vehicles for boys. I cram as many goodies in the box as I can.

Hygiene products are a first to go in.

My daughter and I went the other day and grabbed some things. She went back today to see if more had been put out. Love operation Christmas child.

Always school supplies, soap and washcloth, and toothpaste, and a fuzzy to cuddle! One of my favorite projects to do.

We try to do bows/headbands and such for the girls, flip flops, socks, a ball or something for the boys, and a stuffed critter for all.

I cannot get enough of these clouds! And because it’s so still, they seem to hang there and gently change shape. So much fun to watch! Also...there are Wugmumps in the house! Gramma has a happy 💜. ... See MoreSee Less

Wishing you a lovely and great time with the Wugmumps, Kim. ❤👍

I love Kansas They are so big

We had our two grand girls this weekend. The 11 year old made cookies and blueberry muffins for our sweet friend who is in hospice. The 8 year old made a princess scroll for her. The above is a picture of the girls and our friend when she was still at home.

You have the cutest grands💜

The longer I walk with the LORD, the more I realize the truth of this scripture. When we love God and are dedicated to His purpose, there is NOTHING we face that is wasted in His kingdom. My biggest childhood hurts are woven into my adult ministries. The hardships and heartaches of life have strengthened my bond with the One who is always there for me and has built an empathy for others facing similar conflicts. When we say, “God, take my heart and make it Yours,” we are opening ourselves up for abundant blessing, and sometimes those blessings come in the way of storms that serve an eternal purpose, either for us or for someone witnessing how we handle the storm. Never let a trial plant seeds of doubt about how much you’re loved. He is innately good, and He makes good plans for His children. ... See MoreSee Less

Jeremiah 29:11 tells us: "for I know the plans I have for you," says the Lord. "They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." God is good and wants good for us!!

The longer I know Him 💜 the sweeter He grows😉

A good reminder! Sometimes worry gets me down and I forget to trust in the Lord for all things.

For some reason, I've been humming this song for the past few weeks. It's an oldie as far as contemporary Christian music goes--probably from the late 1990s--and the artist who sang it is Crystal Lewis. I couldn't recall anything except the chorus, so I looked it up, and--wow--the words really got me. They read like a prayer, a promise, and a call to respond. I hope they'll bless you, as they did me.

Verse 1:

Lord I'm ready now.
I'm waiting for your triumphant return.
(You're coming so soon).
This world has nothing for me,
I find my peace and joy solely in You.
(Only in You).
I want the world to see,
You're alive and living well in me.
Let me be a part,
of the harvest for the days are few.
(You're coming soon).

Chorus:

So People get ready,
Jesus is coming
soon we'll be going home.
People get ready, Jesus is coming
to take from the world his own.
People get ready, Jesus is coming.
Soon we'll be going home.
People get ready, Jesus is coming
soon we'll be going home.
(We'll be going home).

Verse 2:

Theres a day that comes
when we will be divided right and left.
(For those who know Him and
those that do not know).
And those who know Him well,
will meet Him in the air.
Hallelujah!

(God is within us).

And those that do not know, they
will hear "Depart I knew you not."
For my friends you see,
there will be a day
when we'll be counted.
So know Him well, know Him well. HEY!

Chorus:

So People get ready,
Jesus is coming
soon we'll be going home.
People get ready, Jesus is coming
to take from the world his own.
People get ready, Jesus is coming.
Soon we'll be going home.
People get ready, Jesus is coming
soon we'll be going home.
(We'll be going home).

Tag:

For my friends you see,
there will be a day
when we'll be counted.
So know him well, know him well.

You can listen to it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVM-CnNCgW0 There's an almost two-minute video preceding it that can be skipped, but it's about Israel and is kind of interesting, if you want to see it through.

This has literally been running through my head for the last few weeks! People, get ready!

Thanks for word and song

AMEN

An oldie but a goodie.
