A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

A Little Bragging!!!


This is my darling baby boy! He is 15 years old and is just about to finish 9th grade and is learning

how to drive...YIKES! He loves and serves the Lord and is an inspiration to his family and friends!

I felt inspired to write about him today...with all that is going on in this crazy world...I am so

proud of the young man he is becoming. God blessed me beyond measure a little over 15 years ago

with this precious child and I have spent the time since just trying not to mess up the wonderful

gift I was given!

I have shared with you about my sweet daughter and thought I would brag a little about this

amazing boy! It really isn't bragging I guess because I had nothing to do with it...he came that

way...he truly is an angel sent from heaven and I am just blessed to have in my care. I guess you

can tell I am crazy about this guy! What can I say...I am one lucky mom;)!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

Lots of Love!!!


I am linking with the precious Marla for WOOHOO WEDNESDAY! Thank you Marla for being

our wonderful hostess! Be sure and pop over and check out all of the fun that is going on at

Always Nesting!

Cathy, he's a doll! I'm sure a little good parenting has something to do with how wonderful he is. :)

We are both lucky moms!

Kim said...

Aw, what a sweet post Cathy. He is certainly handsome that's for sure. You brag away girl, it's our right as moms. Now, let me just say how disappointed I am to live so far away, because my sweet Mallory is 14 and they would make a very cute couple!

Cindy Rand said...

Cathy~what a cutie. Children are one of the most wonderful blessings from God. It sounds like he's had some pretty awesome parents who have trained him up in the right way.
Such a sweet post!

Cathy, what a loving and touching tribute to that dear boy! Isn't the best to know that he love he Lord and is following Him?
Give him lots of hugs! They grow up too fast.
And Congrats to you too, Mom. Raising great children takes a lot of hard work and prayer.

Woo Hoo for a wonderful son and a wonderful Mom. They go together. I think bragging on them goes a lot farther than criticizing them all the time. I am proud for you. Blessings

Cathy, he is really handsome and I love his big smile. Sounds like he is JUST as wonderful on the INSIDE as he is on the out, which is a credit to his parents. My little sparrow is also 15 and finishing 9th grade. It's gone by in an instant, hasn't it? Class of 2013! So happy to share in your pride. xx P&H

I Share yours and Privet and Holly's pride ;)

Hi Cathy, You have every right to brag! You are very blessed to have such a wonderful son. I hope Chase turns out as good as he has! We pray that he will take the right path. He is almost 11 so it won't be long until he hits the teenage years. That will be the real test! I am really watching his friends right now, they have alot of influence. So far so good! I know you are proud of both of your kids. Thanks for your sweet comments on my old house, we had alot of great memories there. Have a great week! Kristen

Oh Cathy, thank you SO much for your stopping by my blog, and becoming a follower! Your loving words blessed me. This post made me shed a few tears. I have a 22 month old son, and I can only imagine how proud of him I will be when he's 15. I know it will go by too quickly, as many people tell me. I am cherishing every day I get to spend with him. :-) Your son is blessed to have you as his mama! I am following your blog now, too, and look forward to stopping by often. Bless you, friend!
