thankful for another THANKful thursday

I am joining Greg at for another Thankful thursday. If you haven't joined him yet, stop in and be part of this great event! Greg is a perfect combination of seriousness and humor. You won't be disappointed, I promise!

"Taste and see that the Lord is good" (Psalm 34:8)

I am thankful for the 2 precious little fellas above. Bryton and Sawyer have brought me immeasurable joy and I praise God for them daily. I love how anytime you ask Bryton a question beginning with the word 'who', his answer is always "God".  Even at age 3 he sees that God is the best answer to everything!

I am thankful for my baby girl, Ashlie and her husband Cody. Because of them, I have those 2 precious fellas above! They are teaching their boys about the Lord and for that I am so thankful. There is nothing more important than raising children up to know Jesus and His love.

I am so thankful for these adorable 3 grandyoungin's belonging to my oldest daughter. Could I be any more blessed? Mikaela (7) and Eli (4) are playing softball and t-ball and I am so grateful that I am able to be part of this experience in their lives. I love to watch them play and I just thank God that they have this opportunity. I am also thankful that I get to chase Mercie (2) around during practice and games. She keeps me young!

I am thankful for my daughter, Megan and her husband, Rod. They are the amazing parents of the 3 blessings above and teaching them daily to know and love Jesus. They are about 8 weeks away from adding another blessing to their family.

Oh, I am thankful for my sweet daughter, Melissa. I am still in awe of the miracle that God performed in her life 4 1/2 months ago. In November 2009, we couldn't even conceive the nightmare that we were about to embark on when she returned home from Africa after a 10 week mission trip. After being diagnosed with severe complicated Malaria and being close to dying, my sweet Lord reached down and touched Melissa with His mighty Hand. He healed her with His awesome power and I will thank Him for that every day of my life. Thank you Jesus, for the miracle of Melissa.

Greetings in the Lord Beth, I'm so glad you came by my blog so I could meet you-it seems we have much in common in the way of lots of grandkids. They bring me such joy and I can see they bring you so much as well. I'm going to follow you as I think we are kindred sisters.
Hugs, Noreen

Praise God for all he has done for you. I want to thank you for being first today. It means the world to me. I love the "who" answer. He is right, it is always God.

Hi Beth! Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments. I am really looking forward to getting to know you! Just out of your husband's name David? I grew up with a David Herring and that would be NUTS if it was your hubby!

Your family is beautiful! We are two blessed Nanas for sure!
Hope you have a joyful Sunday! I will definitely be back to visit!

BECKY said...

Hey Gal, The David I knew moved from Miami to Natchez Mississippi when he was about 12-13 years old.
I knew it was a long shot, but figured it couldn't hurt to ask!!

Blessings to you, Beth!!
