I'm Pressing On...Praise God!

It's been a very difficult couple of weeks for me, but I have to keep pressing on, right? You all have been such a HUGE blessing to me. It has really meant a lot knowing that even though I haven't been able to keep in contact with you like before, you were still checking in on me. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

There are so many different subjects that I'd like to post about, but since I have MANY blogs to visit tonight, I'll just keep my post brief for now.

Jae recently learned the whole New Testament and for the past week, we have heard her singing it over and over and over and OVER. So, earlier today I asked her if she would share it with you on video. She reluctantly said, "yes".

I must say that I am one proud momma! Listen to this.....

Definitely keep pressing on and pressing in! Hope you are feeling okay, Daphine.

What a sweet video...I loved it when my girls learned the books of the Bible like that. I still ask them to sing it sometimes when I need to find some of those hard to find books in the OT!!

Bless you!

April said...

I learned that same song when I was a little girl. Tell Jae that I think she did an absolutely AWESOME job! You have every right to be one proud momma!

I know your load has been very heavy lately. We're all thinking of and praying for you, Daphine. God WILL see you through this time in your life...I know HE will! God bless...love ya!♥

OH how sweet! Keep pressing on my friend! Know that we are here for you. May God give you peace and strength for the days ahead.

Take care my friend!
Love ya!

That is great! I went to a Christian school my whole life, and I still can sing the Old and New Testament! It's best to learn it while they are young, and they'll most likely remember it forever!

I hope you have a great week!!

Heather said...

she is too cute! what a great job! I'm so happy to see you blogging again. I've certainly missed talking to you everyday. I was thinking of you today and was going to email you but you beat me to it by posting a blog! I hope things start to get easier for you.

Way to go Jae! I'm proud of you.

Daphine, hang in there. I'm thinkin' of you.

Jennifer England said...

Excellent job, Jae! And great job to mom and dad to for pouring into her each and every day. Daphine, love you and will continue to pray for you tomorrow as I know you still have a tough road ahead. The best assurance is that God is on your side and like Pastor Steve said today, He will never give you more than you can handle. Hang in there. You are almost through this valley.

Mod Girl said...

Hang in there, friend. Way to go Jae!

Liz said...

I will continue to pray for you, Daphine. I am sorry that you have been through so much.

Good job, Jae! She is just precious!

Lee said...

I'm still praying for you. But that was so cool! I wish I had the patience to remember all of those.
Although I suppose learning it in song form is very helpful.

Jennifer said...

Now that is what I call AWESOME!

Great Job!!

Bravo...great job Jae!

Ok, I need to learn how to download videos! How about doing a tutorial!?!

Melissa said...

(Loved hearing your voice! for some reason I never pictured you with a Texan accent. Don't know why, cause I know you live in Texas! Funny, eh?)

Angela said...

Your daughter is adorable! I remember when I learned the books of the Bible.

I hope you are doing ok. I haven't been around to read your blog as I was gone for all of January, but I read a bit right now to know that you are going thru a difficult time. I'm so sorry! ((((hugs))))

Jae is one smart girl! I hope you will be doing better soon. I know it can be exhausting to jump over these hurdles in life and they usually line themselves up for us to jump several at a time. Hang in there and thanks for your sweet comments as well!
