Kimberly began this portion of her life’s journey on Friday, October 27, 2006... with these thoughts firmly implanted in her spirit by God:

“NO FEAR”     “Game On”
1 Cor 15:54-55
Death swallowed by triumphant Life!  Who got the last word, oh, Death?  Oh, Death, who's afraid of you now?
Today, August 6, 2010, was the day that VICTORY was made perfect and Kimberly joined the presence of her Savior Jesus.

In 2009, God gave her these three words - “HOPE”   “BELIEVE”   “VICTORY”

God gave her many victories over these last 4 years... Very real miracles...

Romans 8:18-25, 38-39
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Join us as we are “still” in the presence of this miracle by the hand of our Savior.

Victory is hers! And all of Heaven rejoices at the arrival of their new “tender warrior”!
