II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Satan, You CAN'T Steal My Joy!!!

Today wasn't one of my best days. To start off, we found out this morning that there is a big kink in our building plans. We have to come up with $10,000 to purchase the land that our house is going on before the building can even begin. I have no idea where we can get that kind of money--but My God is Jehovah Jireh, my provider and there is nothing He cannot do! So I am trusting in Him to take care of it. Next, on the list, I have a terrible toothache because one of my wisdom teeth is coming in and pushing into my jaw. I woke up in the middle of the night last night with a horrible headache and have had one ever since. I can barely open my mouth---and I had to wedge my dinner in--because I couldn't open wide enough to even take regular bites. More than likely, I am going to need to have all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled very soon and that is going to cost a chunk of money too. The 3rd negative thing that happened today was when I went to take Brooklyn to gymnastics---my car wouldn't start. My dad tried to jump start it--but it is totally dead---and Matt is working all night so I am stuck here car-less until someone can take me to buy a new battery. And, last but not least, after my dad so sweetly grilled us some steaks tonight, I turned my back for a minute and then heard Grant SCREAM. I turned around to see that he had just put his little hand on the HOT grill!!!! He cried all evening and sucked on his fingers. He finally went to sleep holding an ice-cold cup of milk in his burnt little hand. So...this has not been the best day---but even in the midst of all this negative--I still have SO MUCH to be thankful for! My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in Glory!--and the rotten, stinkin', lyin' devil is Under My Feet!!!

Jenny one time you sent me something I think it was the 911 poem. Your situation with the car. when your car didn't start you need to praise god, Because maybe if your car did start you may have been in a accident or something. And I'm sorry little Grant burnt his fingers, But thank God he heals too! Praise God
