Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Praise In The Storm With The School #Music + $25 #Giveaway

Life is always interesting over this end.

The kids and I were in an accident on Friday. I was waved to enter traffic. I looked well on my sides before entering to go ahead in front of the driver letting me in, and next thing I know, I was just trying not to hit a tree and a house. Another lady just rammed into my car.

My daughter didn't see much because she was reading her morning devotions to me when we were hit.
My son saw it for a split second and could only yell!

We came to a safe stop. The kids were shaken up, but seems to be fine.

The car is out. It's old. We aren't sure if we'll be able to afford fixing it. We have no money to do so. Nor do we have money to get a new / possibly used one. And our other vehicle keeps giving trouble (engine problems)

Life really loves to dish it.

I am trying to just breathe and trust God with what I can't do. Now insurance will sort out stuff on their end and we'll have to move on with life.

I was sure by now
God You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say “Amen”, and it's still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
“I'm with you”
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
Every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry
You raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can't find You

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
“I'm with you”
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away


I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The maker of Heaven and Earth

    Have a tanfastical week :-)

  2. Oh Callie! I'm so sorry to hear of your accident! So glad you and the kids are OK!

    Love the first song - so inspiring! And the second one I shared, too! You, me and Naila so far are proving that great minds think alike! :) I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers, and hopefully your insurance will work out an affordable replacement vehicle very soon. ((HUGZ!!))

    Welcome to the 4th Grade here’s an Education Song because I’m Your Teacher about to Lose My Mind Workin’ For A Livin’

    1. Thank you Stacy.
      I appreciate your prayers. *HUGS*

  3. Glad nobody was hurt in your accident. Great songs.

  4. Oh my baby girl are my babies okay? Awww when it rains it pours huh! You and yours are always in my prayers, but back in my paralegal days that's what I did was Workers Comp., and Personal Injury. It was her fault her insurance has to take care of everything. Did she have a rental car on her insurance or do you? I'd take advantage of that first. If it was her fault & by the way you say it here it sounds like it was get a lawyer my friend. They work on a contingency basis. That means they get 1/3 of what he settles for. The law states a third, third and a third. Meaning You get a third, the medical is a third and legal fees is a third. If you have any questions let me know. Hugs and I wish you well . You're in my heart as you're in my prayers.

    1. Thanks for sharing Dolly. No one was hurt, even her when I asked her.
      And we have no money to get a lawyer.
      Thanks for praying. *HUGS* I appreciate you.

  5. The most important thing, is you're all okay. Thank you, Jesus. :)

    The car stuff will work itself out. Hurrah for the insurance!! Praying for God to open doors. Hugs to you!

    1. Thank you for praying Rosey. I appreciate you.

      I know God will work it all out. I wont worry.

  6. I am so glad all of you are ok. The music you picked is perfect!

    As Stacy said, that second one, we were all thinking alike!

  7. Collette, first off I give God praises for safeguarding you and your lovelies. Don't worry God will sort things out and make away for you. Just leave these concerns at His feet. Beautiful, soothing music for the soul. Loved listening and finding peace in it this evening. Have a good weekend, my friend. XOXO

    1. Thank you for praying Cathy. I appreciate your care.
      God is good. He'll help.
