God's Goodness!

Today I am sharing with you some of God's incredible blessings over my life. In this post you will see the greatness of God's favor in my life.

Saturday we attended my grandson Bailey's First Holy Communion at St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Austin, Texas. This is the church his mom Andrea and family attended while growing up in Austin.

After the service we took advantage of the beautiful church grounds and captured our memories of the day with a few photo's. In the picture above I am with my two grand children Bailey and Kaci. In the back row my three children Christi, Clint and Chad.

I have been wanting a picture to frame of my three kids now I have it. Chad on the left, Clint in the middle with Christi on the right. God has Blessed Me in so many ways but my biggest Blessing was being mother to these three.

Love this picture of Clint with his two Blessings!

Here I took a picture with my IPhone of Christi with her sweet guy Paul and his precious daughter Audrey.
I have to figure out how to fix pictures taken with my phone because this is too far off. lol

Kaci, Bailey and their Grandma Yellow Hair! Do you like my new hair cut. I decide to go short for summer.

Another picture of all of us together.  
Bailey with his pretty mom Andrea!

Ah my three again. I have to decide which picture I want to frame. lol

Afterwards we all gathered at Andrea's sisters house for lunch. Here Kaci is playing with Amber's puppy.

Bailey is such a joy to all of us and need I say we are very very proud of him.
This is an Ice Cream Cake he is posing with before we all devoured it. Wish I had a piece of it now because I have been mowing today and that would hit the spot right about now.

Back to the mowing but first I want to thank you for coming by today! I know how busy you are and that you have many other blogs to read so when you visit me I feel so Blessed.

Love to all,

Hi Dear maggie, Congratulations to your handsome grandson Bailey on doing his first Communion. I remember mine as being so special and feeling so pure, can you imagine. ha,ha,ha. Maybe I was pure but I don't think that I pure anymore, ha,ha,ha.

I love all the photos and let me tell you that you have a beautiful family and you are so right at feeling blessed. I can see the love all around your family.

I love the ice cream cake idea. It was hot enough to wear a sleeveless top and a pair of short today here in Fredericton N.B. and I could go for that giant birthday cookie.

I pulled out my push lawn mower to have it service before I use it. It won't be long as the grass is really growing in this heat.

Take care,
Hugs & love,

Hi Maggie, I loved the pictures of you with your family. I love the new hairdo. Bailey's 1st communion such a special day. I can tell by the pictures how much you loved being with them. Hope you are doing o.k. Was you close to any of the storms the other night. I thought about all of my friends that live down that way. Have a wonderful day.

Once again I will compliment you on your beautiful family. The good looking genes came from you after all.
I really liked the picture where the Virgin Mary has embraced Clint's head best.

Thanks so much for bringing yourself and your family "up close and personal" with us Maggie. :0)
Love both pictures of your kids. That's going to be a tough one to choose!
Congratulations to your grandson and it's nice to see the whole family come together for these "special times."

You are truly blessed, many times over. You have a beautiful family and Kaci and Bailey look so happy. It is very nice to see.

Congratulations to your grandson on his First Holy Communion, Maggie! All the pictures came out great. When I saw the first one of your three together I thought that would be wonderful to frame, but then I saw the second, more close up picture. Tough choice although, you could frame both! : )

I can't imagine a greater joy
than children happily married
and with littles of their own,
loving and caring for them well
and building thriving families.
It's the sweetest dream of my heart
while on this earth.
Holding this dear
with a holy hush
as I celebrate with and for you.
grateful from the bottom of my being
for the gift you've been given,
