Thankful Thursday!

Hebrews 13:15 (Amplified Bible)
15Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name.

I am thankful for my great husband!

I am thankful for my wonderful children!

I am thankful to God for bringing me to the process of adoption. A process that had brought every thought and belief straight to the top - to be examined and sought in the word of God - the only truth! I am so thankful for this.

I am thankful that God has adopted me.

Ephesians 1:4-6 (New International Version)

In love 5 he[a] predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.

Sometimes when I do these Thankful Thursday posts I get overwhelmed because how could I possibly list everything I am thankful for? God is so good, He's so good to me!

Fair Time!

What a great week! We had such a great time. #1 was an amazing showman and we all had a blast! This is the look of victory! She received Reserve Champion in the 9 & 10 yr olds AND the 11 & 12 yr olds AND the 13- 15 yr olds. By the finals her pig was done and not moving at all - can you blame her?
#1 in front of the judge - our judge was awesome and looked like he was a member of Rascal Flatts. :)

My Mom came down to help - Thanks Mom and HAPPY BIRTHDAY today!!

#1 getting the Congrats shake from the judge - winning is fun. I know I am not suppose to brag but I have to say she did such a great job - this was her first year and all her hard work this summer paid off - Way to go #1!!

New Life!!

Last night at 2:52 Cassie gave birth to a perfect little boy, David. He is a little peanut 5lbs 8 oz. and 19 inches long. I am so proud of her. Once her water broke it was go time. We were only at the hospital for about an hour before she delivered.

I feel so blessed this morning. I feel overwhelmed by the miracle of new life - can that ever get old?

I am so grateful to of been Cassie's coach. I grieve for Cassie and RW not being together in this moment but overflowing with gratitude for the sacrifice. RW is fighting for us all and the freedoms we have - thank you RW, thank you Cassie, thank you David. If you can, thank a soldier today! There is a very proud Papa in the midst of a war today.
