Woohoo! I’m kicking up my heels with joy. Doing my little happy dance. Fist pumping high. All in the face of Satan.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.” James 2:2,3
Oh, life has had some joyous moments lately. I’ve lost 6.4 pounds in a week. My daughter tried out for the position of Costume Designer for the High School musical and was selected. And my son’s first year tuition was cut by $20,000, leaving us with a relatively small monthly payment to get him through the year! (all due to aid because of our past couple of financially stressed years.) We are starting up a new curriculum and class rotation at our new church and people seem to be excited about it. We have finally gotten rain…and lots of it. (I LOVE rain.)
But, it seems Satan has taken to making all our cars and appliances go haywire. Seriously, we’ve had something wrong with our cars for the last month, one right after the other. We get one fixed and another breaks down. Our washer went out yesterday too. Luckily, someone at our new church knows someone who takes older models and put new parts on them and fixes them up. We bought one for $60 today! Much cheaper than a service call and all the parts and labor it would have required.
So I say, phooey on you, ye ole devil. I’m dancing in your face! You cannot bring me down. You cannot steal my joy. You are nothing.
Just call me twinkle toes!
p.s. I finally found the perfect layout for my blog. I love it. It is cute. It is clean. And it fits me, I think. This one is sticking around. Sorry to be changing up my blog so much. This one shall stay.
