ZOO!!


Our day was filled with a trip to the San Francisco Zoo! Cale and I had a blast. It was SO much fun! I needed it after the hard time I was having last night. The Lord always knows what we need and has perfect timing!

Lots of pictures were taken! I won't put them all on here...but there are some that I really wanted to share. Part of the fun we had today was a game that I thought of last night and Cale agreed to it! :) As we went around the Zoo, we were supposed to make ourselves look like the animals. Here's the animals we tried to look alike...you can see them in the backgrounds of each picture!

Here is Cale being a Giraffe-


Here we are being Gorillas-


We're supposed to be Penguins...but I'm not sure what we look like ;)-


This was the only Elephant in the whole Zoo!-


Do we look like chimpanzees?


Rhino's!!


Us being Lions!-


It's so much easier to put on a mask! :)


"Do not be afraid! Don’t be discouraged by this mighty army, for the battle is not yours, but God’s." 2 Chronicles 20:15

"You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem (Caleb and Kathleen). Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you." 2 Chronicles 20:17

"Give thanks to the LORD, for his love endures forever." 2 Chronicles 20:21

I am so incredibly blessed that I am able to have a blast with my husband. It's not fake or pretend. It's not miserable or mopey. It's a real amazing crazy blast with him. I love him so much! I'm also incredibly thankful that this isn't a battle that I'm fighting alone. The Lord is fighting for us and with us! His living Word says over and over that we are not to be afraid or discouraged! Cale and I both need to start each day with confidence and know-truly know that God is with us and not against us! His love endures forever! Not just a little while but forever!

  1. I love these pictures. They make me laugh - and Caleb's personality really shines through. You're not fighting this alone! You're right. Cale is fighting with you, and God is too. And we are too, and we'll keep praying for you.

  2. Kathleen!! What fun those pictures are. The one I like best, is the first one of you two on the bench. That is sweet. I was praying yesterday that you guys would have a wonderful time. Thank you for the reminder, that we are not alone. I, too need to remember that. Getting to be a part of your life has been a blessing. Thank you, Marion Hansen

    I think you may find comfort in this song by Michael W Smith
    "I Will Carry You"
    You are following the right road Kathleen. God Bless you & Cale.

  6. Hi Kathleen - Every time you post pictures or a video I am always taken aback by how incredible he looks and how much progress he continues to make. He's doing so many awesome things and seems to be showing no signs of slowing down! I truly believe its your love and faith that fuels his recovery - there are no limits. You and Cale make my day!

  7. Hey there! These comments are from my Aunt Enieda and my friend Priscilla from high school.

    Aunt Enieda: Yes, He knows exactly what we need in our lives. Glad things are going a little bit better. The Lord knows better than we do what is good for us.

    Priscilla: I LOVE reading her updates and I don't even know them. They are heart warming


    I don't think Priscilla knows the Lord, but it's so amazing that she's reading everything you're writing and being witnessed to everyday :) Love you guys.
