It's A ...

“Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth.” Psalm 127:4

♥On this Thankful Thursday I'm so thrilled to announce I'm going to be a grandmother to my very first GRANDSON! My son (Jason) and daughter in law (Kristin) called me yesterday thrilled share this awesome news. So, after three of the most adorable grand-daughters, it's time once again for trucks, cars, frogs and dinosaurs. We are all overjoyed to say the least.

♥I'm also thankful for a very caring dentist, where I've been spending lots of time these days. Yes, I'm still battling headaches and more headaches. TMJ has become a household word around here. I really need a miracle, and if you would, whisper a prayer for me. I'd greatly appreciate it.

♥I'm grateful for my son's safe arrival in Taiwan, and how happy he has been. Joseph is teaching 5 year old children English and the kids in his class just adore him. He has already rented an apartment, purchased a motor scooter to get around town, and of course bought a new guitar which he loves to play. He said the people are wonderful and the cost of living is very low compared to America. He also continually reminds me NOT TO WORRY! Unfortunately, I can’t help it , but I have learned to trust God with all my kids. Thanks so much for your prayers, I desperately need covet each and every one.

♥Finally, I'm thankful for my husband who unselfishly serves us in countless ways each day. He will have the chance to get away this coming weekend to attend a men's retreat on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and a golf game is included in the package! (Don't you just love men's retreats?) The weather has been beautiful, and I'm sure he will have a well deserved time away.

Thanks once again for all of you out there who take time to stop by and check in on me. Your comments are a blessing to me; I love getting to know you all.

Have a Happy Thankful Thursday!

Join us over at Sting my Heart and see what other grateful hearts are praising God for.

You're gonna love a grandson! Am having a wonderful time with James. Of course not actually playing with him yet, but....
As for the TMJ, I thought there was a lot that could be done for it these days?! Praying hard!
Am mostly through the book I told you about. Just give a holler if you want me to pass it on to you when I'm done.

I'm so pleased that your son in Taiwan seems to be right in God's palm and hopefully the 5 year olds reamin right in his palm and keep on adoring him...he looks like he's settling in very nicely quite quickly...thank you for Susan, calm her heart and soothe her worries with the Balm of Gilead...that will bring the physical healing and now the emotional...

WOW, Susan you have so many reasons to be thankful! How wonderful you will be a grandma again (although you look way to young for that!!). Sometimes I get excited thinking about Grandmahood but I think it will be awhile .....

Thanks for the compliments on my blog page. It was fun to do and now I am hooked! My family is a little unnerved at the time I spend on my laptop but at least I am here and available!!

I will keep praying for your physical self and your son in Taiwan. You must be REALLY proud of him. How long will he be gone?

I understand about having a child overseas. My daughter is currently in Poland. She has been overseas on a YWAM missions trip since January.
I miss her terribly and can't wait to see her at the end of June. She will most likely return to England within a few months to live an extended time working with YWAM.

Just wanted to tell you that I understand.

PS. I too am on the blog team with Internet Cafe.
