kicking Satan in the hiney...

*I meant to type hiney, not heiney. My keys are sticking. Or, I just can't spell, I am not sure. :)

Thank you God for bonuses coming just in the nick of time that will buy groceries and diapers for our family this week. Thank you for family that helps my husband come up with ways to make money when money is tight. Thank you for sore throats and fevers, even though they are uncomfortable and an inconvience that force this mama to slow down and hold her babies more. Thank you for dr.'s and antibiotics that will heal the sore throats and fevers. Thank you for the money to take care of this even if that's all the money we will have. Thank you for that much. Thank you for family that we did not get to see because of these things that come up. Thank you for these family members whom we love very much. Lord, please, let us be able to see them this week. Lord, thank you so very much for our arguments this week as we started the Love Dare book. These arguments have only made us stronger and closer. The enemy has been defeated. Thank you Lord, for showing yourself through so many people this week and thank you for the friends that I didn't even realize that I had. Thank you for the emails and cards from my sweet blogging friends. What a treasure they are to me. The encouragement they give me is invaluable. Thank you Lord, for my sister, Crystal and her help in so many ways in my life. Thank you for blessing me with such a sweet and thoughtful and precious soul for a little sister. I will praise you all my days for the amazing sister and best friend you have placed in my life. Thank you Lord, so much, for my darling husband and his strength spiritually. I love seeing you work through him and I love the man he is becoming more and more. I am in awe of what you are doing in our lives. THANK YOU, LORD!! Thank you for my babies and their precious personalities and sweet hugs and cuddles and kisses. Thank you for these three priceless blessings that I am so undeserving of. You are amazing, Lord and I love you. Thank you for my mama and her unwavering devotion to her husband and children. Thank you for that wonderful example. Thank you for her strength that holds me/pulls me back up when I am down. Thank you that she loves and encourages Charlie every single day and through every hardship. Thank you that she truly loves him as her son. Thank you for my Dad and his wisdom that helps me so much. For his kind actions and helpful ways. For the Dr.Peppers and food and stuff for the girls when we are down to one vehicle and I have no way to go and get it. Sweet man and I love him. . Thank you for Charlie's family and their love and support. Thank you that Dad's cancer is in early stages and not spread anymore. I know that you will be with Dad and us through all of this. You will be glorified and good will come of this. Thank you for the sweet cousins that my children have. What blessing they are to them. Thank you Lord for my warm home and another bill paid this week. Food for my family and gas for our cars. Thank you Lord, thank you Lord, thank you Lord! Thank you most of all for the sacrifice you made all those many many years ago for sinners. I love you, Lord Jesus.

*Just felt like praising my God tonight. Maybe you will fell compelled to join in. I often find that after praising GOD for awhile, Satan has left the building. There's just not room for the both of them! :) Just a little "kicking Satan in the butt" tonight for ya! Have a great week!
