Tis Hard

God is with me keeping me strong. Every day is tougher but I am
so thankful that I am doing as well as I am and I know the
prayers and love do it. By mid day I am unable to think out things or concentrate. Just know
I love ya all, am here, but won't be around BloG world much.

Love in Him

  1. Deena, we know you're here in thought. I think everyone who comes here wants you to be happy, healthy and blogging for years to come. If you need time to concentrate on healing, we want you to take as much time as you need. I know you'll be in my thoughts and prayers everyday.

    Think positive and take joy in being loved. You are a precious soul.

    Blessed Be.

  2. Deena,

    Take care of yourself and take comfort in all the people praying for you by name.

  3. Good morning Deena.
    You are in my prayers daily. Rest and sleep is best for you now, so you will have many tomorrows.

  5. Oh sweet Deena, we all love you so much and hope you can feel our prayers. You rest so your body can heal!

  6. Deena, sending love and listening.

  7. Hi Deena,
    Your body is telling you not to overdo so it can heal. Take comfort in so many prayers being said for you.

  8. You are always in my prayers, Denna! And with each passing day, you are one day closer to wholeness and being well, and one day more behind you in this journey! It's time to rest! YOu need it! Love you, Cora

  9. It is so time for you and time for your mind to rest in Him.... Those of us that love you are here and we are praying....... We so want you to be well....... God is on your side and He is close........ and I have a thought for you....... begin to pray the word.. sometimes it is hard for us to pray, words dont come..... but His word is powerful... find scriptures that talk of His love and His healing power and life..... and pray the word..... Put your name in those scriptures and speak His word back to Him... I do that for things that I just do not know what to pray.........

  30. I'm scatching my head, wondering how this can be true. You all tired and admitting it too. But I just happened to check your Primitive Gathering site and my page too. Ya know what, there's my page looking pretty as you did all this for us after chemo and such?! You woman are too much. How can we thank you for how you still manage to get done three times that of any other one. You are truly awesome. Thank you. "Church"

  31. took me days to do it..and
    3 hours just to publish

    I hope I did it right
    good thing I have a back up
    if i need one

  32. Sweet Deena

    You rest knowing there's lots of us out here in "The Land of Blog" who love you and are praying for you. You might be tired and feeling yucky, but be happy that the chemo is doing it's job and that you sweet girl are being held in the hands of our God. His hands are big and strong and comforting.


  33. Deena, Even though I am new to the blogging world, you have touched my heart and I pray for you daily. I know God will hold you in His loving arms - and one day you will feel well and normal again! This prayer has meant a lot to me:
    "Lord, Help me to remember that nothing is going to happen to me today that you and I together can't handle!"
    Hugs! Your new friend Ruthie
