The Bates Family  Only one life, โ€™twill soon be past, Only whatโ€™s done for Christ will last. #BringingUpBates Thursdays @9ET on UpTV

Have to admit, I'm super proud of my boy! Thank you to this sweet lady for taking the time to post this on FB and to show gratitude! It made this mama's day! And a huge thank you to Zach for being such a blessing to so many! I love you to the moon and back! ๐Ÿ‘ฎ#ZachBates #MyHero #LineOfDuty #ProudMom

Ok, so I love old trucks! We were out on a lunch date and I made my handsome hubby stand beside it so I could take this pic (Hope the owner wasn't somewhere watching, thinking we were weird!) Gotta admit he looks cute beside it lol! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜โค๏ธ#HappyToBeMarried #LoveLunchDates #MuseumOfAppalachia #OldTrucks

Well, Erin planned the party for Chad, but these cuties definitely stole the show! (Slide for more pics) BTW my new favorite game for families & parties is a phone app called "Heads Up"... an absolutely hilarious charades game that Alyssa introduced us to! I was literally ROTF laughing while watching Gil act out the word "modeling!" This game is for intense laughing only!! #PartyTime #BrooklynPaine #KaciLynnBates #Josie #ChadAndErin #SurpriseParty

Happy Birthday, Chad โค๏ธ๐ŸŽˆI cannot even think back to a time when you weren't part of our family! You have taught us so much! I have to admit, you are one of the best Christian examples I've ever seen! I'm humbled and convicted when you are around- in a really good way!! Your diligence, your faithfulness, your spiritual- mindedness, your commitment to not speak negative .... you just motivate us all to have a better testimony! I'm so grateful for you! Thank you for being such a great son-in-law, husband, father, and example! You rock (even at 30!!) #HappyBirthday #ChadPaine

Later gram: If there's any school break, Tori usually heads to Florida to see Bobby! This time their breaks lined up to where Tori could spend a few days at his college, then he could come back with her and spend a few days here. #Josie #Bobby #Tori #Addee

Later gram: Carlin wanted to spend her birthday in Nashville (Imagine that! I don't think it was because of the scenery or tourism opportunities lol!) Thank you, Stewart family, for making her feel so special! (Scroll right for more pics) #CarlinBates #KellyBates #EvanStewart #EthanStewart #StewartFamily #BirthdayTrip

๐ŸŽผHallelujah! What a Savior! โ€œMan of Sorrows,โ€ what a name
For the Son of God, who came.
Ruined sinners to reclaim.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
Bearing shame and scoffing rude,
In my place condemned He stood;
Sealed my pardon with His blood.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile, and helpless we;
Spotless Lamb of God was He;
โ€œFull atonement!โ€ can it be?
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
Lifted up was He to die;
โ€œIt is finished!โ€ was His cry;
Now in Heavโ€™n exalted high.
Hallelujah! What a Savior!
When He comes, our glorious King,
All His ransomed home to bring,
Then anew His song weโ€™ll sing:
Hallelujah! What a Savior!

I'm sooooo excited, cause I've been waiting for Daniel Sparkman's newest album to be released! I just downloaded it from iTunes, and it's beautiful! It's soothing, original piano arrangements- perfect for peaceful background music for an office, a dinner, bedtime, quiet time, etc!

Happy Birthday, Carlin & Allie Jane! ๐ŸŽ‰โค๏ธ๐ŸŽˆ(scroll for more pics)
I can't believe you're 19! It seems like yesterday when I was bribing you with candy to sit still in church! And I remember dad calling you his little blessing, cause you'd look up at him with that sweet smile & those big brown eyes... and you had him wrapped around your little finger! I've loved watching you grow up and learn and experience life, but more than that, I've loved being your friend! I love that you include me and catch me up on what's going on in your busy world. I love when you plop on my bed to talk and laugh and sneak food off my plate! I love when you hang out with me and tell your friends that you have a cool mom ๐Ÿ˜! I love how you encourage me with your sweet & timely words. I love how you're a spiritual example to me with your consistent Bible study and ministry with kids. I love your silly, fun, adventurous, and sometimes emotional ways! You make me laugh and you make me smile! Thank you for being you and for making my world a little more wonderful! I love you โค๏ธ
Allie Jane,
There's nothing that makes me feel more special than hearing you say, "Granny, I love you!" I love to see you bring a book and crawl in my lap, so that I can sneak hugs and kisses in between stories to read! Your FaceTime calls brighten my days! You are so smart and so well mannered and obedient! You're such a loving and outgoing little blessing, and you're laughter is contagious! I love you and miss you so so much! ๐Ÿ˜˜

It's National Sibling Day ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿ˜˜โค Give a hug, send a text, make a call, share a meal, do something special that says, "You're the greatest!" Let your sibling know you care ๐Ÿค—
