Well, I just shared a huge, long post on its own thread... LOL

But it doesn't have Monday's on there! Monday, hubby got a bonus at work that is basically equal to an extra paycheck. Praise God!!

Also Monday, we went grocery shopping. We were planning to get enough for us for the rest of the month, plus what we're contributing to both families' Christmas dinners, plus some more. I was fully expecting to spend between $300-400 but it ended up only being $200! I feel like God cut that grocery bill for us. It was a FULL basket of stuff, y'all, a lot of it meat. (They were out of hamburger meat though so we still have to get that. LOL) So exciting!


So, maybe I'll just have to update this thread every day with what's going on with us. LOL What an awesome God we serve!!

Praising Him for Avery's adoption and for the work he's doing to repair my church.

I’m praising Him this week for a great deal on a new car. We finally have a car!!!! I feel so relieved that we no longer have to ask for rides or drive in shifts or call a taxi every time all 6 of us need to be somewhere. Rick can finally go back to working without interruptions instead of playing family chauffer which means he can relax and enjoy his time with us in the evenings. That’s a huge blessing right there! I missed my husband.

It’s a very safe car which is helping with my anxieties a little and it’s big enough for all of us and all our stuff.

And the biggest blessing of all…..my parent’s Christmas present to us is that they will pay for the first two payments and send us some money every month to help with payments for the rest of the year! I know they really can’t afford this any more than we can so it’s a big deal that they would even offer. I really love my parents.

This whole car thing has been soooo stressful for me. Having one is a necessity but they are just so darn expensive. Not to mention my stress over having to drive at all after my accident. God is showing me this week that He’s big enough to handle all of it and I need to relax.

Wow, congrats Lexi!! God is good!


Anna, what a blessing! Praising with you!!!


You ladies are not going to believe this. I'm still in shock myself. I thought today's praise was going to be that the landlord didn't charge us a late fee, even though he has every time, to the letter of the lease.

But tonight when we got home from the dollar store, after Tide and dog food and a couple of things, we checked the mail finally. In it was a Christmas card with enough cash to make almost another whole paycheck.


God is so good, so faithful, and He has mercy on whom He will have mercy. I'm beyond thankful, and blessed to overflowing, to the point of humble. This is amazing, y'all. God is so good!!!

I am realizing how blessed I am in having DH work on the farm and me a SAHM. Cohen was out with Dh this morning feeding, just a blessing for their dad to be there for whatever they need. If I need to go somewhere with the girls Dh can change his plans and stay in the house with the boys. Just BLESSED !!!!

Excited for you Augie and praising with you! I haven't followed you but have seen you around in the different forums, and know you've been trying and hoping for a long time. Will certainly be praying with you for a happy and healthy pregnancy!


And that's fantastic, Chrystal! Such a blessing for hubby's schedule to be so open. We've pretty much had that, with hubby being the boss, and it's a little rougher now that he's having to work on someone else's schedule. LOL So it is a blessing! Tis the season for joy!

ROFL! God is so good. And so amazing.

And so funny.


We just had someone knock on the door and drop off a bag of groceries from the local First Baptist Church... which we don't even attend. LOL

Day 6!! God is amazing and merciful!



We have been through the wringer, ladies. If you aren't aware of how this year has been for us and would like to know, please let me know. I don't mind posting, or sharing via PM. The last 3 years has been trial after trial. The Lord has been testing us by FIRE, absolutely, without a doubt. But He is faithful to those who continue to cling to Him. I am so thankful for His bringing us through. There is a time for everything under the sun - a time for trial and testing, and a time to rejoice over trials ending. Praising Him here, in our season, and knowing that next year He has some great things in store. Thank you Lord for keeping us faithful, keeping us looking toward you, and keeping us on our knees.

Dalynn, I love that you keep adding to this thread with new praises.

I have one to add myself today!
Ellie's been fighting a cold for about a week now and I've been worried we'd end up back in the hospital. Colds almost always include at least an ER visit if not being admitted for a few nights. But she's doing soooo much better today! I think we're out of the woods. She's hardly coughing and I don't hear any wheezing at all. I think we'll be able to skip that 2 a.m. breathing treatment tonight.

I love reading everyone's praises. It brightens my day!

Praying for your Ellie, Anna! Glad she's doing better!


I love reading praises too. Sometimes it's humbling seeing what others deem praiseworthy. Sometimes it's humbling to find something for ME to deem praiseworthy. I feel it's so important to share what God is doing in our lives, but worry that I may sound like I'm bragging - I don't intend to! And I am certainly praying for each and every request I'm seeing. If the Lord is answering my prayers like this right now, I'm bringing all the supplications before Him I can. He is amazing and does whatever He wants to! LOL

Thank you Lord for all that you do for us. Thank you because I wake up every day and see another day with my kids. Thank you for everything we take for granted. Thank you Lord for a great husband who spoils us.
