joy and praises!

"For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all
things; to whom be glory for ever. Amen."
Romans 11:36

These past few weeks have been amazing. I consider myself so blessed to be able to spend  a lot of time with my girls and grandbabies. God is so good and I am so thankful to Him that for now He has ordained this time in my life to have the freedom to do just that. Thank you, sweet Lord, for this privilege.

Thank you, Lord for the joy of Mercie's 3rd birthday! What a precious child she is and I am so grateful for 3 wonderful years with this little angel sent from above!  What joy fills my heart when she throws those little arms around me and says, "Nana, I will love you forever!"

Praise you, Lord, for Bryton's 4th birthday! I am so grateful for the amazing 4 years that I have been able to spend with this precious gift from heaven.
I am thankful to have been there for Silas' first ride in the swing at the park! He wasn't too sure about it at first, but then he decided it was okay and loved it! 


I am so thankful that I was able to spend the day at the zoo with my daughters Megan and Ashlie. We took the four youngest grandbabies (the oldest two were in school) and they had a wonderful time. It was a beautiful day and a great time of fun and fellowship for all of us!


God has poured out mercy and grace far beyond what I deserve. He is faithful and true. He is gracious and abundant. Each day of my life, I grow to love Him more and more. I never imagined just how amazing a life in Him would be. It just gets better and better and I am grateful beyond words.

Thank you, Lord, for the unspeakable joy that I feel each day of my life because of You. As my precious little Bryton would say, "I love my whole life!" Thank you, Jesus...

"Sing unto God, sing praises to His name; extol Him that rideth upon the heavens by His name JAH, and rejoice before Him."  Psalms 68:4

What a wonderful way to be spending your days! I look forward to being a grandmother someday. :-)

Love the pics of your grandbabies...they are adorable!

Hi Beth,

Ok, first I need to see your I.D., because you look like an older sister, not grandmother. I'm sure you hear that all the time. All of those pictures of each of the kids are so adorable, they are all the cutest! What blessings, and they are blessed to have such a loving grandparent. ( It just feels so strange referring to you as a grandparent :o)

God bless you,

LOok at those collages you made with your babies!! Great job! U are so blessed girl!


Beth, you are truly blessed with a wonderful family.

Aren't grandkids great? They're almost as much fun as watching a bunch of monkeys at the zoo! :-)

Take care and have a nice day :-)
