I am so Thankful....

First of all, let me begin by saying Praise God for all the things that He is doing in my life and that of my family. He is an awesome God, surrounding my family with blessings and miracles through all things! He is the Great Planner, the Knower of ALL things, the Great Healer… He is my Everything!

To sum it up: He is the reason I roll out of bed every morning with a smile on my face and the reason I go to bed every night with peace in my heart.

God knew about The Charm House years ago when He placed the name in my heart. I didn't know what I was going to do with it, I just knew that one day I would own some type of business that would be called “The Charm House”. He prepared me for years, teaching and giving me ideas so when the day came that I "needed" something to help occupy my time, it would be there waiting for me. Having the health problems that I do, I have extreme ups and downs. I have dealt with this for years and God has taught me how to deal with it.

Looking back on being a Mom and Wife, God always gave me the strength that I needed to deal with everything I needed to, yet kept me humble enough to remain obedient to Him. Today I can see how this all came together to make my children the young adults that they are today.

See, sometimes when God puts us in the deepest of trials (as that of my health), He is preparing us for something great! I once told a young lady that when you accept Christ as your Savior, life is great! It was hard for her to understand that because she knew that God still allows us to go through trials. I have been through many trials and have seen God at work through them. I know through ALL THINGS God is working out HIS PLANS and I am willing to deal with anything so that HIS WILL can be done not only in my life but that of my husbands, my children and my family.

We serve an AWESOME GOD And GOD is Good~All the Time!

Yvette, I so love your spirit! Though I know God is at work all the time, taking the hard stuff and using it for my good, I cannot always say "life is good" Sometimes life sucks!! But I can be thankful for even the sucky parts because I know who holds my life in his hands.
And those hands love me dearly, and always have my back so to speak!!!

Did I see someone mention getting GA blogging gals together??? Oh let's do!!!!!!

I pray God keeps your strength up during this busy, wonderful season!

Love you!!

My dear friend your post echoes my feelings about the trials in my life...I know God has carried me many times when the road got too difficult...he's never not been there for me. I too believe the trials only brings us closer to our Father who loves us dearly. May this Christmas bring many to their knees because they BELIEVE!!!
Merry Christmas
