traciveek My first #OrangeSky Lots of water vapor/moisture in clouds + sunlight shining/reflecting causes this (usually before a storm). Cool, huh? #MNwx #StormSpotters #MetroSkyWarn #KC0UPN 15h

traciveek #Birthday #family #selfie!! From all of us, to all of you, THANK YOU!! Every year I'm blown away by how much the Lord has blessed my life with such thoughtful, sweet, friends & family. Today is the day I especially make sure to thank God for giving me LIFE! I'm alive!! I also thank God for YOU, and the day that you were born! I pray God would continue to be merciful and gracious to you, that He would bless you for being a blessing to me, and my family. I love you all and may Jesus be the joy and life to you, that He has been to me! XOXO ~traci 1mon

traciveek In case you need reminders, like I do, I wanted to show you the lilies I planted last year to remind me of this promise from God, spoken by Jesus to His disciples: "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin...Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown in the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not worry...for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you." ~Matthew 6:25-31 #LifeInTheWord #GodsPromises 1mon

traciveek My final presentation for Intro to Baking & Pastry Techniques class this semester: Fruit Tart with Creme Anglaise and strawberry, kiwi, and mango coulis. I got 95% on my Anglaise, 85% on my Creme Patisserie, 82% on my sweet tart dough, and 93% on my plating. Not too bad, huh? #GonnaBeAChef 2mon

traciveek Inch worm party on my arm today. They were quietly dropping from the trees like ninjas as I was cleaning up the back yard. I even found a third one on my shirt after I came inside. They're so cute! It makes me think of Charles Aznavour singing "Inchworm" on The Muppet Show all those years ago. Do you remember that? 3mon

traciveek Lord Jesus, I look up at the sky tonight and see the moon and the stars. I feel the wind on my face and hear it sway the trees. It all reminds me that You placed and ordained everything, because of Your love and by Your power. You are God, on Your throne, and in control. I need this reminder because there are things that I simply don't understand, and those things are making me weep sorrowful tears. Right now, those things are feeling much, much too heavy to carry, and my heart is broken under the weight. Jesus, please come and be to me, and all those who are feeling like me, all that You promised You would be: Comforter, Healer, Shelter, Forgiver, Protector, Redeemer, Restorer, Helper, Advocate, Deliverer, Father, Mediator, Revealer, Refuge, Strength, Faithful, Mighty, Justice, Wisdom and Peace. We lay our burdens down at the foot of the cross and exchage them for the gift of who You are: Savior. Thank You for hearing my humble plea. In the wonderful, powerful and beautiful name of Jesus Christ our Lord, I pray, amen. 4mon
