Welcome to My Hmmm Collection
I am Karin, born and raised in northeastern Pennsylvania and loving it. My experience as a daughter, sister, mother, Grammy and Aunt, a 30+year healthcare professional, a Crossroad Bible Institute Instructor, a designer/maker of Christmas ornaments, a lover of cooking but not baking, a survivor of domestic abuse, and a women who enjoys nature and loves her Creator give me a wealth of topics to ponder and write about.
Several times in my life, I tried keeping a journal/diary but became easily discouraged at missing a daily entry or two. I sometimes regret not sticking to it because you can learn a lot about a person’s character through their personal musings, and there is much more meaning if the musings are those of a family member. Not too long ago a dear friend told me of what I call her hmmm collection, entries of statements, quotes, clichés and personal revelations that make her say “hmmm”. These hmmm moments I believe are God inspired and bring with them the responsibility to ask…
- Why did I say hmmm?
- What is God telling me?
- Am I willing to do what He is telling me?
So begins My Hmmm Collection, God Reveals Himself in the Ordinariness of My Day
“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” Isaiah 43:1-3 (NLV)
