My 10 Best Things About August

Linda from Behind My Red Door - has challenged us to share 10 things we like about the month of August.And as I read hers I started thinking of how busy might life has been and how there is so many things in my life that revolves around August.I need to slow down and thank the Lord for all these wonderful gifts he has brought in my life.
So without further ado....Thank You Lord for the following:

#1-4 years ago on August 1st I celebrated my first "full" day of SALVATION! My husband and I gave our lives over to the Lord on July 31st 2005. We went to bed that night and I could honestly say I laid my head on my pillow that night and fell asleep with so much "Peace" in my life.The next day August 1 we knew was a brand new day. And I felt like I was born again! Thank You LORD!

#2- August 28 1982 was the day I married my Jr. high sweetheart! He is the Love of my life. And even though we was not serving the Lord then,the Lord knew who was for me because he had great things in store for us! I love this man with all my heart!

# 3-Peaches! go get yourself a few. Eat them right off the tree, sliced in cream, make peach cobbler with ice cream or you can even blend them in delicious slushies. It doesn't matter how you eat them!

#4-This man came into my life when I was 13 years old. I was a rebellious teenager and he needed the Grace Of God to be able to put up with me!LOL!! And even though he is not my biological father (my father passed away when I was 6) he is my DAD! he showed me what a true Christian was. Did it scare me? Absolutely but he was real! Did I buck up against him, absolutely but he stood firm and I love him for that! Thank you Dad-He will celebrate his 87th birthday on August 28th (my anniversary)

#5- My mother! What can I say..she is my mother and I love her so much! She will be celebrating her 72 birthday on August 24

#6- My beautiful DIL-Nikki! I am so thankful the Lord sent her in my sons life.She is not only a wonderful christian wife but a christian mother also who is training up my grandchildren in the way of the Lord. Nikki is celebrating her 23rd birthday on August 27.

#7- Knowing that Fall is just around the corner!

#8 -Going on vacation finally! To Bald Head Island N.C. in 1 week! Thank-You Lord!

# 9 & 10- And last but not least my 2 beautiful grandchildren who I will be able to spend alot of time with this next 2 weeks. These 2 are my blessings from God! I love them so much I just want to eat them! Uh......does that sound weird? Everytime I have told my son that he says "uh no Mom...that doesn't sound right!" LOL!! I just can't ever get enough of these two!

Thanks everyone for letting me share these with you and thank-you Linda for posting this wonderful idea.These are my 10 best things for the month of August! Have a blessed day!
