Family Update About Court Today

*image source:

Well, we were jumping for joy this morning because our court hearings are over!!!!  Hallelujah and praise God!!!!!

Sara is officially now in our custody for good.  It was a quick hearing this morning at 8:30 am.  Although I have custody of Sara from now on, I was a little perturbed when we left because her dad had done absolutely nothing that he was ordered to the last time and she said nothing to him about it!  If it had been me, she probably would have thrown me in jail – since she has already done it to me twice before and that was just for failing to appear.  He directly violated her court order!

But, I’m not going to moan and groan about it.  I’m just happy to have it all done and over with!  Sara was happy, the Judge actually applauded us and said it was the best case she had had all week and she thanked us for “coming so far for Sara’s sake”.

I’ll take it without any more complaint!  Thank you Jesus!  And thank you to all of you who have been praying for us during the past year of turmoil!  God bless every one of you!

Love and hugs,


Be Joyful Always

Be joyful now and always
especially when feeling the worst

‘Tis the very best way
those dark clouds to burst

Develop a cheerful air that
you carry through every day

Add a flavor of kindness
to everything that you say

It truly isn’t that hard
to spread some love around

And one day you’ll find
their love for you abound

As Christians we are charged
to walk in His Way

It takes a little practice
give it a try today!
