I am so glad I did...I so needed and craved that time in the Word and with God...then I headed upstairs to bed...I read A Tale of Three Kings while I was whitening my teeth, lol...you know I have to look great for the cruise that I am going on in 4 days...woohoo...anyway...the morning has not started off good but I being in the Word and with God last night has helped protect me...I am still feeling alright...I am thankful...you know I know God loves me and is here with me and is holding me up right now...I dont know how I would survive without Him...He spoke to me alot last night about the places He has brought me from...and I needed to see those things...he also showed me that satan is attacking my faith and has been...he started by throwing small darts and when he saw I was batting them down and standing strong...he brought out the big guns...and yes he knocked me down but not for long this time...I realize now that what I am going through is a major attack of my faith, and seeing is the first step...last night I got back up and dusted myself off crawled up in my Saviors lap and let Him speak and give me strength...so away from me satan in Jesus name...my Father has me safe and sound...I am learning alot through this struggle and understanding more and I am growing...today I am okay...I am thankful...not too mention on 4 more days until I will be boarding a ship...I so can not wait...I am truly vacating, lol...going to take me a nice girly book, my bible, and my family...what more could you ask for...well not to mention being on a grand ship in the ocean and seeing things I have yet to see...so excited...I can not wait!...well I had better go and get this day started and get my work done...I have so much to do!!...hasta luego!...I love you Jesus...thank you for this wonderful day...in Jesus name...Amen!!
