kaaters I've lived next to trains since I was four. even when I moved 7 hrs away to college, the campus was still within earshot of a train yard. unless someone else points it out, I don't usually notice the trains anymore, but even just having the sound of trains in the background of my life makes me feel at home. #WHPfeelslikehome 🚂 8h

kaaters this was an accidental snapchat caused by a rowdy dog, but that's pretty much how I live my life so I figure it's an appropriate christmas photo. happy birthday, Jesus. u da realest. [but seriously, I'm always humbled by the thought of an almighty God saving silly old me by sending His son (that's Jesus) to earth to pay the ultimate price for our sins and flooding His undeserving children with mercy. what better time to be in awe of such a crazy love than when we celebrate the birth of Jesus? He didn't have to do any of that, He didn't have to save us. but He wanted to and He did and now we can be free in Him, made new and clean by his grace. take a minute today to be in awe of that. it'll be worth it, I promise.] 2d

kaaters today I went out to buy ingredients for vegan truffles (we'll see how that goes) and some last-minute Christmas gifts. but the sky was so striking that I decided to drive 20 minutes out of town to take photos. I ended up pulling a walter mitty/sean o'connell and didn't take any of photos of the clouds, I just watched the sky change for a while. happy christmas eve, guys. watch a sunset sometime. 2d

kaaters northern california weather has been perfect since I got home; rain, clouds, fog, general lack of sun. I forgot what it was like to experience a season besides summer! #socalprobs 5d

kaaters #fbf (is that a thing still? no?) to when I went the taj mahal two summers ago. in case you haven't figured out by my posts yet, I go to india every summer, for the past three summers. it's an incredible country full of amazing people, many of whom are lost and hurting. to be able to hear their stories and photograph them and serve them where they are, alongside family (biological and spiritual), is such a blessing to me. seeing cool places like the taj and the himalayas are just bonus prizes. :) 1w

kaaters there are two very tiny trucks in this photo. let their size in comparison to the hills (and yes those are hills compared to the actual mountains) make you feel even tinier. and then, when you feel very tiny, remember that while you are small, you are not insignificant. if you ever have a chance to go to the himalayas, please. go. 1w

kaaters yosemite never gets old. it almost feels like cheating to post photos of such an inherently beautiful place. I didn't really do much, just pressed a button and then pressed a few more buttons and here we are. regardless, yosemite is one of my favorite places and I'll just post this as appreciation for the incredible artist that God is. 2w
