It's Great to Be Me!

Mimi at Listen to Your Grammie tagged me with a meme.
You can read the explanation for the beginning of the meme originated by Jan at Bold and Free. Jan says that everytime she says "It's great to be me", it reminds her to count her blessings. So she started the meme.

Here is my list of why It's great to be me.

1. It's great to be me because I am a child of God, saved through faith in Jesus, who gave me the gift of eternal life.

2. It's great to be me because I am blessed to have a lovely, sweet and thoughtful daughter.

3. It's great to be me because I have a talented, hard working son-in-law.

4. It's great to be me because I have a smart, sweet and precious grandson who is still "my sweet angel" at 11 yrs. old.

5. It's great to be me because I have a nice, comfortable and peaceful home.

6. It's great to be me because I live in our wonderful country of freedom.

7. It's great to be me because I have God's Word to read, and I can stand on His promises, pray, and He answers me.

8. It's great to be me because I can listen to beautiful music.

9. It's great to be me because I can enjoy and grow lovely flowers.

10. It's great to be me because I can watch the birds and listen to their sweet songs.

11.It's great to be me because I have beloved family members and friends, who are blessings and Jesus who said "I have called you friends."

12. It's great to be me because God has given me the talent to write pretty music for His glory.

13. It's great to be me because I am blessed with the fruit of the Spirit ~ love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, and faith.

I am tagging my friend Barbara at Tidbits and Treasures, because she is a great writer and is so good at this. Also, I am tagging Maxine at Nanna's Reflections, who also loves to write, Beka at More Love To Thee, Deby at Apples of Gold, and Betty at Country Charm. All those mentioned are among my favorite blogs. Please feel free to join in if you would like to play along.

It really was a blessing to participate in this meme and to think of all these reasons why it is great to be me.

Psalm 139:14 -
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

Jeremiah 29:11 -

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope

Thanks for visiting with me and the kind comment....Betty

Maxine said...

Cathy, Thank you so much for all your sweet comments. You are a blessing. I don't know if I can get to the meme because I am so jammed here, as usual. I am trying to keep my head above water to get to my favorite blogs and any posts I make will not be ones I need to give so much thought to. Though I am thankful to be me. And I can see why you are thankful to be you. I'm thankful to know, btw. Your gift is on the way.

Cathy said...

Betty, you are welcome and thank you for your prompt response. I'm glad you will also be doing the meme. :o) It takes a bit of time, but it is worth the effort.

Mimi said...

Adrienne said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog and for leaving your sweet comments. I'm glad you did. I recently got a new computer and somehow you 'fell out' of my blog list of favorites. Several others did and I'm slowly 'finding' you again. So glad you enjoyed the song.

Cathy said...

Thank you, Katherine, for your visit and sweet comments. I am enjoying your posts on tea.

You're welcome, Adrienne, I enjoy visiting you. I believe we both love music very much. How wonderful to get a new computer! Mine is overloaded, and I pray it does not just quit on me! Thank you for your sweet comments.

Feathering My Nest said...

Beka said...

This is a great meme! I will probably do it in the next couple of weeks. I really enjoyed reading the ways God has blessed you!!

(By the way-- the apron is on its way and should arrive this week, Lord willing.)

Cathy said...

You're welcome, Kathi, and thanks for visiting me and for the sweet comments. :o) Hugs back to you ~
