Just a little Nana Joy!

"O Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth Your praise!" (Psalm 51:15)

I thank you, Lord for my precious grandchildren. I thank you for blessing me with 5 of the most adorable and sweet and loving little angels that call me 'Nana'. Thank you for my 2 daughters that you so richly blessed with these little ones. They bring joy to my heart. They bring love to my spirit. They enrich me and bless me beyond measure.

I am filled with joy to have 3 daughters that are in love with You. The are living out their lives in obedience to You and Your Word. Thank you for keeping your hand upon them and being patient with them as they found their way.

I give you all praise for what you have done in their lives. I give you all praise for continuing to bless them and me mightily.

You are so worthy of my praise. You are wonderful and powerful and holy. You are God.

Thank you for the gift of children and grandchildren. May I be worthy of my calling. May I always honor you in everything I say and do. May I bring You nothing less than the glory you so richly deserve.

In the sweet name of Jesus,

I agree as far as the joy in my heart and that I lift them up to the Father praying that one day, my step-children and grandchildren will know Jesus personally.

Love you!

This makes me think of Proverbs 31:28 "Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her".

As blessed as you are by them, they are doubly blessed by you!

"Thank You for keeping Your hand on them and being patient with them as they found their way."
That statement gives me such hope as I consider my children growing up and making their own choices. I am doing all I can to lead them toward God and godliness, but I know I cannot MAKE them do anything. And sometimes I hear stories of children who have strayed from God and I wonder...
Thanks for this encouragement today. *grin*

What beautiful blessings the Lord has given you!!

As I look at those precious faces I know that His Love and Goodness is pouring from one generation to the next!!

Would appreciate you prayers ...... we haven't been blessed with grand babies (YET). My daughter in law has had many miscarriages and will be examined by a fertility specialist on Thursday of this week. We're believing a supernatural move of our Supernatural God! Nothing is too difficult for Him! PTL!

Thanks for sharing this post!

Sweet Blessings!
