Thank you God...

"Thank you God for the cheap fruit water you let my mom buy. amen" Caleb's prayer at supper tonight after I got a deal this week on flavored sparkling water for .09 a liter. I hope that my children are learning that God has entrusted many things to us. I feel like using our money to stretch farther on our grocery budget is just one of the ways. If you are interested in learning more about my deals visit and tell them I sent you.

After spending the summer working hard and using most of his vacation days, Chris has done it. He has passed HEBREW! Praise the Lord! This class was a power class. 32 weeks of Hebrew compacted into 10. It was really hard. Chris has worked non - stop and can finally say he did it. this puts us back on track for graduation in May 2008. Keep praying for Chris. He has 2 weeks off of school and then right back at it again. Pray that we will have fun family time and that he and I will be able to have some down time together before the whirlwind starts again. There is still one more Hebrew class to take and a few others that will be more challenging, but I feel like the biggest one is behind us. We praise God in all things!

Many Blessings!

Sometimes, days get long and you get weary. This week I looked for the Lord's Blessings. I found healthy family, an excited cousin, faithful friends, a great MOPS retreat, son getting in fine arts academy on scholarship, daughters almost mastering potty training, son telling knock-knock jokes, sunshine, sweet neighbors, teenage neighbor who helps so very much, and some friends offering to get me to the MOPS convention. All this makes for one blessed week.

I pray that you look for the Lord's blessing this week too.
