Just some traveling shots and Day 3 - Giving Thanks

Just about all I could say while traveling through Michigan was "Oh, Lord my God, How Great Thou Art!"

do you see him on the left side of the picture?


Thankfulness Day 3 -I am so thankful for my children. The Lord blessed my husband and I with 6 children. Four of our precious infants went home to be with Him shortly after birth. However, we have had the priviliged of sharing our lives with a son and daughter. I absolutely was over the moon to be a mom. I give you permission to ask any of my family and friends. I just knew they were the cutest, smartest, most precious children on earth. We have many precious memories of the kids growing up. Sometimes, the maturing of our children can be painful to us as parents. We experience that and again the Lord is faithful to be with us. I love my children more than any words on paper could ever come close to telling and so grateful that they are in my life.

1 Samuel 1:27 For this child I prayed; and the Lord has given me my petition which I asked of him

The photos were beautiful. You certainly saw some gorgeous colors.

What a blessing your son and daughter must be for you. My heart breaks that you lost beautiful babies. What a blessing it is to have four little angels watching over your life.

You got to see such beautiful country. I'm so sorry you had such a limited time with your infants and delight with you for the time you have had with your other two. Thanks so much for sharing!

I feel the same way when I see the beautiful way He paints Fall. I sometimes have to sing How Great Thou Art, too.
Honey Bear is going to Michigan next week. I probably should have gone with him.
