celebrating Brent and giveaway winners...



WOW.. I can't believe I didn't even get ONE post in since I mentioned the giveaway.. I'm SUCH a slacker! Image hosting by TinyPic Oh well.. on with the update.

So it was 14 years ago TODAY that God gave us one of our most precious and treasured gifts, He gave us our firstborn son.






Brent was as beautiful and healthy as any new mom could wish for. All ten fingers and toes were there.. he had hair the color of his daddy's, and his skin was as pink and soft as could be. He was PERFECT. We never knew what a short time we'd have to spend with this AMAZING gift, but OH the things he taught us in his short life!

Those of you that have been with us for any length of time have probably already heard me tell of how Brent started telling those he loved how they needed JESUS. (This started happening when he was only 4. He was told Zach - who was TWO at the time that he should ask Jesus to save him NOW.. ha!)

Brent "officially" accepted Christ as his SAVIOR on Easter Sunday at the age of 8. Yes, he was something special from the beginning. Our boy is such a treasure! (I hate to speak of him in past tense because he IS still ALIVE, AMEN?? He's actually MORE ALIVE in Heaven than we are here)

Oh, how I'd love to share all the details and all the ways he blessed us, but that might very well take FOREVER. Image hosted by TinyPic.com To say he was a blessing to all of us would be a tremendous understatement.

I'd like to say a SPECIAL "THANK YOU" to all of you that are, and have been celebrating his LIFE with us this month!! It's a WONDERFUL feeling to know that he's remembered.

My challenge to you today is to ask you to do a random act of kindness for someone today in memory of Brent. He absolutely LOVED to make other people happy. It doesn't take much to bless someone.. it might be as small a gesture as offering a smile to the next person you meet. (You never know what might be going on in the heart of the stranger you meet on the street.. they too may be dealing with the loss, or pending loss of a loved one)

Yes, our boy was also DELIGHTED by giving gifts to others! That's why I chose to celebrate his LIFE by having a giveaway on his birthday. With that said.. the winners are..............


for the bloggy makeover... Erin

the Bible on CD - Laura - (I don't have any contact info.. please email me with your mailing info so I can get this out to you!)

a Paula Dean Cookbook (did I spell her last name right?) - Nen

bath & shower gel - April

bath & shower gel - Jill

and finally, a Lunch for Life cookbook. This is a special cookbook put together by families that have/had children with neuroblastoma. There is a picture of Brent and one of his FAVORITE breads inside - Teresa




Congratulations to all of our winners! Would you please email me with your mailing addresses so I can get this out to you? ☺ nason5@aol.com

I SO WISH I could send something to EVERYONE! THANKS again for visiting and for joining us as we remember our sweet little man.


(Happy Birthday, Sweet Boy, we love you all the way to HEAVEN and back! We count ourselves BLESSED to have been your parents)

An amazing boy, a child of Faith, A wonderful brother, son, and friend, A motivator, A catalyst for Christ, Perfect angel.....Brent Nason.

LisaShaw said...

Precious Sister, I had left a comment on your FB message about your dear Brent earlier. I hope you received it. My arms of prayer and love are wrapped around you and your family while you celebrate the beautiful LIFE of your dear son Brent. I'm sure he's smiling BIG in heaven with the LORD.

I really am deeply touched by your generosity to give to others in Brent's name. I'm so blessed by that.

Thank you so much for the candles but even MORE I'm thankful that the LORD allowed you and your hubby the blessing and treasure of birthing the life of such an amazing child. His time here was short but look at the life long lasting legacy of touching others lives that he has left. He did in those years what some don't do in a lifetime.

I love you.

Laura said...

Thinking of your prescious Brent and your family on this day.

He sounded like such a give just as my little girl is.

I read her your blog this morning and she wanted to tell you she mailed a pair of "tinkerbell jammies to a icky sicky friend"

Praying for you and your family on this day and always.

Laura and family

Laura said...

Thank you so much for such a precious and generous gift! (I left that part out when reading to her).

I have tears streaming down my face.

Happy Birthday, B-R-E-N-T!
I was thinking of all that you are doing right this very moment...

Boldly approaching the throne
and seeing the face of our Creator
Radiating in your new perfect body
Everyday rejoicing with the
Saints and the Angels
Never feeling pain nor sorrow nor
the curse of sin again
Totally healed!

Tonya, I tried to get a little creative with that acronym. Sorry...I guess it is the teacher in me.

One thing that struck me in this post was that you said he is actually more alive than us. Jason and I were reading the Bible the other day and discussing that very same thing. Everything we see in this world is dying; Brent is experiencing the living! We get so caught up in this life, that we get that mixed up sometimes, and I am so happy you brought that up. =)

I love you and am thinking of you today, and everyday! You guys are in our prayers.

Love, Kristin

Christy said...

Anytime you'd like to share any special things about Brent, I'd LOVE to hear all about him! Happy Birthday to your precious Brent and Happy Becoming a Mom day to you!

Today is my friend Sonia's 3rd child/2nd son's birthday, he went to heaven when he was 6 months old after his battle against a blood disease that took his oldest brother and that his sister has beat and his baby brother is currently fighting against.

So two special little boys entered this earth today and I celebrate them both!!! Remembering and honoring Brent today.

Eeeeks - what a creature of habit -sent my love and b'day thoughts on Brent's site - but would never want you to think I forgot Brent or his wonderful family on this extra special day! A boy who is/was so special he had his very own parade never gets forgotten! As always thank you for sharing - and I do hope that Zach and Gabe get a Brent b'day cake and a ice cream party with lots of Sweet Brent memories...XXOO-Love, randy

April said...

Hi Tonya!
You have such a sweet heart and it's easy to see that Brett did, too. I just know that he's smiling down on you from Heaven. I know that today is one of remembrance and sorrow, but, also, of celebration for all the lives he touched. Please know that I'm thinking of and praying for you today! God Bless!

Congratulations to the winners!

Susan said...

Dear Tonya,

This is Mary Susan's older sister.

I too would like to wish Brent a Happy 14th Birthday!

Even though I have never had the honor of personally meeting your Brent, I feel I got to know a lot about his life here with us from all I heard about from Jordan, Susan and you when I met you.

What stands out the most was his love for Jesus and his kindness.

Brent was stronger then most adults, and was wise beyound his years.

That I believe was a testimony to his love for Jesus and what great parents you were as you raised Him in the Lord.

God bless you all in Mississippi,

Mary Grace in Louisiana!!

Oh how I love visiting and reading about that sweet boy Brent.

I remember when I first came across your blog and was reading about Brent...oh the chills I get still to this day when I read about him! He was such an amazing boy with such amazing faith! The songs he would sing of his Lord & Savior. Oh Brent how you are missed.

Blessings to you and your family,

This is the first time I've visited your blog, and WOW, what a story. What a very special boy (and child of the King) he was. Celebrating with you that he is now alive and whole in the presence of his Savior.

Hebrews 4:13-16 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
