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,

Jesus knew when His earthly life would come to an end. Most of us don’t have information. I recall my mom saying after a young woman died very unexpectedly from a brain aneurysm, “We just never know, so it behooves one to be ready.”

We all want to think we’ll live long lives, but life really is unpredictable. The only One who knows the full number of our days is God the Father. One thing we do know: our hour will come. None of us will live forever. But this time on earth, even for those who live to be a 100+, is a blink of an eye compared to eternity. So what should take precedence—preparing for tomorrow or preparing for forever? Not that tomorrow should be ignored (being responsible isn’t foolish), but if our entire focus is short term, then we aren’t preparing our hearts for eternity. The first step of readiness is to know Jesus on a personal level. Then the Holy Spirit will help us not only live wisely on earth but ready us for eternity with Him.

I woke up this morning thinking about death, not in a frightened way, but just thanking God for another day and knowing death is inevitable. I'm 76. I asked the Lord that He give me healthy last years. I think too often we think that as we age our bodies will deteriorate and become diseased, unhealthy.

4.4...or 5.1 (getting mixed reviews)...earthquake—biggest yet. Not as many broken items as last time because, well, sticky tack! I did lose a dried flower arrangement (saved from my mom’s casket spray), which makes me a little sad, but at least no broken mirrors or dishware this time. So weird to have earthquakes in Kansas! I swannie, the earth is groaning. ... See MoreSee Less

Wow! That’s unreal for Kansas. Now if my state, Kentucky, started getting them, it wouldn’t surprise me because we have so many caves all over Kentucky. This also reminds me of the song by Andrew Peterson. Is He Worthy? It talks about creation groaning.

I'm hearing people up here in Marysville felt it, but I didn't....🤷

Thoughts and prayers for you. How did the little babies fare. ?

That is scary! I have relatin Hutchinson

I heard it was both a 4.4 and a 5.1 2 seconds apart.

Oh my...what city?

Sorry you are having to go through this.

Guess I should be glad I’m in Eastern Kansas. Haven’t felt any earthquake from Hutchinson yet.

Isn't Kansas fracking for oil? Franking causes earthquakes. Just ask Oklahoma.

Been having the strange earthquakes here in Texas too. I haven’t felt one, yet.... 😬

From Today's Earthquake online it was reported South Hutchinson was hit 4.5.

Wow! That is really strange. I thought you needed to be concerned about tornadoes, not earthquakes. I'm glad things weren't too bad for you.

Oh my gosh , prayers .

The Bible says creation is groaning.

How did the kitties react?

Save your dried flower arrangement and put the petals in a clear decorative jar. That way you can still keep them! I have some from my cousin's wedding.

There are several companies that make ornaments or beads with your dried flowers... Etsy has a few, and lait de la vie has beautiful beads online

Didn't feel it at my house in Wichita. Many others did.

Had someone else say they felt an earthquake too!!

That is strange. So this is the second time? When was the first one?

Glad you are safe, save those beautiful flowers and make something special in honor of your sweet Mom..

I didn't, but some people in Oklahoma felt it too!

Are they doing oil drilling in the area? Fracking can cause them.

That’s scary. I’ve been in two earthquakes while visiting in California. No thanks! It gave new meaning to the song with “I felt the earth....move... under my feet!” Glad u are ok. Poor cats must be upset?

Glad your ok. Sounds scary never been in an earthquake.

It’s scary how close to true this is. Except for movie quotes. That part is over flooded with song lyrics. Does this resemble your brain? ... See MoreSee Less

Very much me except I'd replace the puns and memes with hypothetical "what ifs" to worry about.

Book ideas go in the lyrics and quotes section for me!

Uh...yes...especially the 5,000 arguments I'll never have and the don't trip over stuff!

Mine is book quotes not movies 😅

My girls will randomly break out into song or movie quotes ❤️ at any given time they will do hymns in harmony, regular songs for fun or movie scenes. One time at supper someone randomly said "...where's my super suit?" They all just finished the whole scene 😁

Oh, no. My “Don’t be awkward” section is missing. I think it’s full of useless information. And my song lyrics and movie quotes is full of song lyrics and Seinfeld and Friends wisdom.

Kim, do you ever have a song running through your head like it is on a loop???? I do. Sometimes it will happen for days at a time... the same song, same stanza....over and over! Kinda weird!

You might be able to switch the 5000 hypothetical with the don’t be awkward for more accuracy. 😏

This is my brain!!

I'm the same...not movie quotes. Song lyrics for sure!

Yes! The music, the hypothetical arugments, the self talk...yes.

🙋

Yes for the song lyrics, don't trip over stuff (usually over the cat) and the awkward talk.😹

Almost identical, the pun part is bigger 😂🤣😂

Yes! How did you know? I'm the same, a lot of hymn lyrics, not so many movie quotes.

An early birthday gift from my favorite brother. (For the record, I'm his favorite sister, too--'cause neither of us have competition for the title.) Cats and cat sayings in calligraphy! Too fun! And of course his original poetry. Heh, heh, heh... ... See MoreSee Less

Looks like a perfect gift for you.

Sweet!

Aww, brothers take care of their sisters. I miss Cecil doing things for me.

I love cat calendars. I have the Wysocki calendar with the lazy and playful cats on it.
