Fast forward to Sunday. The weather man said we were supposed to have snow Sunday morning, and lots of it. Anywhere from 4-10 inches. Well, sadly no snow. We went to church and enjoyed listening to Thanksgiving stories, and were so blessed by the sermon. Pastor really did a great job yesterday. Then we get ready to leave church and what do you know... it's raining. Not too much. So we swing through the drive thru and head home. Not 45 minutes after we get home, the rain had turned to sleet, which in turn had switched to snow! Yep, more snow! We got a good 4 hours of it and it managed to stick after a bit so we got about 2 inches here. Of course it's all melted my now, but it sure was pretty last night! All of the schools started late which gave us plenty of time to take our time getting ready this morning and enjoy the last little bit of holiday break. It has been wonderful. God is so good friends. To give us all this in the course of a week... man does He LOVE us or what! I feel so full of love and gratitude. My heart is just bursting with love for my Jesus. What an awesome, beautiful, incredibly blessed week I've been given! I think I'm gonna go sing some more praises to my Abba. Before I do, I'll leave you with some photos of our sweet Thanksgiving gift from above. Enjoy!

I am thankful for His grace. My salvation. My family. My two amazing boys. God's word, even if sometimes I may not quiet get what it says... I'm not sure where I'd be without His book. I'm thankful for being pulled out of some enormous pits. Being forgiven and being able to forgive. Having friends that truly know me for who God made me to be. And I know this is a weird one, but I am truly thankful for the song "bubbly" by Colbie Caillat. Everytime I hear it I want to sit in the breeze and daydream...
Your turn, what are you thankful for? How can I praise God with you?

Other than that excitement for the week, as usual when God gives you something amazing satan swoops in to steal your joy and discourage you. So we're doing some spiritual battle with him. Praying him off of certain people he's found it thrilling to attack relentlessly. In my family he's chosen to attack our health. Our allergies are getting to us now. I have little voice left and my sweet babies have runny noses and scratchy throats. He's also decided to make my husband less available to me by messing things up at his work so that he has to work longer and more hours. I guess it puts feet to the phrase, "you know you're in God's will when satan won't let up". We are in God's will, and WE won't be letting up. I'm tired of seeing satan win small victories in my life and the life of my friends and Sistah's. I'm fed up. It's time to get back in his face and tell him to MOVE out of the way! He as no business here and he knows it. It's almost sad to see satan scramble so, but then I am reminded that he chose this life for himself. He may have lost the war already, but let's choose to also take small victories away from him! Feel like being a little short with your husband or kids? Wanna gossip just a tad? Want to fall back into a sinful pattern or stronghold in your life? Fight ladies! Don't let satan smile! He wants nothing more than for us to step away from our Jesus, even if just for a moment, and sin. The more small victories he can build up in our lives, the further away from Christ he can pull us. I for one, and tired of him winning. I am revved up and ready to do battle. Who's with me?
