A thankful heart breeds JOY. When you begin to count your blessings, you can't help but be filled with unspeakable, unending joy. Joy that just begs to be shared with others. Today, I am thankful for these things that fill me with GREAT JOY:
** Spending time with my oldest granddaughter, Mikaela. She has the sweetest personality and always has a smile on her precious face. She still loves to hug me and kiss me and tells me she loves me often. She reminds me so much of her mother when she was a little girl.
** Being entertained by Eli wherever we are. He loves to climb on things and to hang upside down. He is quick to give me big hugs and kisses and he is always so serious when he tells me, "Nana, I just love you".
** Seeing Mercie rocking her baby doll and singing to it.
** Seeing the little boys face that I am now sponsoring through Compel Outreach. I pray that I can make a difference in Peters life.
** Finding scriptures that just minister so sweetly to my spirit and writing them on index cards so I can keep them close to my heart and at my fingertips.
** Seeing this little fella take 3 steps today! Silas will be walking in no time!
** Reaching #100 in my 1000 Gifts Journal. It has really made me more aware of the many, many gifts bestowed upon me on a daily basis.
** Listening to Bryton talk about God and ask a million questions about heaven.
** Watching Sawyer try to do everything that his big brother does. I told him one day that may get him in trouble...
** Little sparkly shoes under my coffee table.... because that means little sparkly girls are at my house!
Thank you sweet Lord for all these blessings. You fill me with joy uncontainable and I love you.
