Thankful Thursday





Today I'm thankful for dirty faces...





muscle men....





cowboys...




and pictures of our 3 handsome boys...





I'm also thankful for good times we've had, memories we've made, and those we will continue to make. I'm thankful for boys who like to dance and be crazy with their Mom... and I'm also THANKFUL for cool music!

Yes, Brent when was approaching those "preteen" years much of his life revolved around music. We sang and danced and enjoyed life to the sound of our favorite tunes. In protecting our boys we've always kept the music clean by listening to Christian music. Most of which brings tears to my eyes as so many songs remind me of times with Brent. I'm VERY HAPPY to say that I met a new friend online (Kysha) who introduced me to a new artist. Well, he's new to me. O;-) His name is Coffey and I'm proud to share a video from GodTube. Our boys & I LOVE him! I hope you enjoy...

Tonya,
Great pictures of your kids! I think dirty kids are happy kids!

My 17 yr. old son happened to be sitting with me as I watched the video of the song you posted. It was awesome and he REALLY liked it! How cool that your blog ministered to my son today!! Thank you. Of course you minister to me everytime I visit, I am so glad to have found you!

Love, Kelley

It's so neat to hear that you enjoy music with your boys. We like singing and dancing to the Newsboys.

having the opportunity to be with our family is something that is really so precious ... am so sorry I can't view the video (wondering why; must be my computer!) but am sure I'd have enjoyed it, too! :)

Kysha said...

Wonderful list of thankfuls! I was just able to read some of your blog and you have an amazing testimony. We never understand His thoughts or even His ways but they are always good towards us. You have been such a faithful servant. Though it's been hard, you have held on to His hand. He has awesome plans for you.

Your boys are ADoRaBle!!

Couldn't get the video to work, but I think I know who Coffey is...if it's the guy I'm thinking of, he has a wonderful ministry.

Loved the post!

hugs,
Vicki

Tonya,
GREAT PICS! How fun is that. Can't wait for my babies to be old enough (Not that I am rushing them) to do trips like that. Looking forward to Saturday! Can't wait to see you guys!

Oh Tonya, what wonderful photos! They are so precious . . . and your words are so true. Boys are so much fun - dirty and all! :) Such a great list of things to be thankful for.

I am so excited about your new niece! :) I am going to be an aunt again in August . . . and I can't wait. Not sure yet if it's a boy or girl but we should find out soon. Children are always such a blessing.

Hope you have a great week!

Hey Lady,
I loved, loved this post! I really enjoy all of your posts, but this one really got me. I was just thinking today how thankful I am for the filthy face that comes up to me with his lips puckered for a kiss. Aren't boys so much fun? Those pics of the boys were great, but I would hate to clean your shower!

That music was definately something that I needed this evening! Thanks for sharing!
Love,
Stephanie
