Much Love..God is Good, please prayer for all those in need. Deena

    with hugs and prayers,

  5. Deena,

    I hope you get out and enjoy some of the festivities associated with Independence Day. We didn't do much for Canada Day. The boys went to the celebrations with their parents and hubby and I relaxed. Around 4pm, the boys and I went out to a u-pick farm and picked 4 quarts of delicious strawberries. They were being a bit silly and we had lots of fun and made a few memories.

    Take care, my friend. I continue to pray for you.

    Blessings and hugs,

  6. Happy 4th of July Deena. Thanks for the tip on John Adams. Wade and I love watching about history. We might just have to go out and get it.


  7. I wonder if the movie store rents it out? Good idea...

  8. The John Adams movie sounds like a great way to spend the 4th...

    you have a wonder 4th

  17. Deena, thank you so much for all your posts. This helps me so much to work through my grief over losing Sandy in January. They are a blessing to my wounded heart.

  18. I hope you've been out in the garden and busy with the grandkids. I'd hate to think you aren't feeling well.

    Praying for you.
    Love, Jan

  19. Thank you for the recommendation. I will put it in my Netflix list. Happy 4th!

  27. Deena, I am praying for you for peace. I was just over at Tiffany's and saw your comment. I sent a note to Sharon to pray too. Know that we care and you are never alone. Jesus is with you and He knows how to take care of you and your family. We don't know even how to pray at times, but the Lord promises peace and joy, even when we are going through difficult times. Prayers and hugs, Kathi

    Great news about the Mammagrams,I'm still clicking!!
    I stopped by Cora's and said Hi,we will keep her in our thoughts and prayers and also little Colton and his family who she asked us to pray for too!
    There are so many who are going through difficult times and it is so good to know we have this wonderful community spirit around us when we need a helping hand and comforting words to pick us back up again!
    You and your family are constantly in our thoughts and of course in our prayers.

  39. Hi Deena,
    I hope you are feeling well.

    I completely agree with you on John Adams. My husband & I watched it on HBO and loved it. We usually don't watch too many of the same shows on TV, but we looked forward to every installment of this mini series.

    It would be great to watch this weekend.

    Happy 4th of July to you!!

  42. We recently watched it, as my husband got it for Father's Day from one of our kids, WE loved it and was sad to see it are right..EXCELLANT.

  43. Happy Fourth! We saw fireworks over the little town of Marietta, GA tonight, and it was so pleasant. The fireworks were amazing! The weather was so nice. Perfect time! Am sorry you are feeling tired and having headaches...surely the worst is over, right? I always appreciate reading your blog, Deena, your love of life inspires me! Life is beautiful! Love and hugs, Maridon

  44. Deena, Happy Belated 4th of July! I was playing catch-up yesterday after being at the beach for a few days!

    I have not seen John Adams, but we recently bought a large DVD set called The Adams Chronicles and have enjoyed it. I want to see the one you speak of.


  45. Deena, You are such an inspiration to me. I'm thinking of you and praying for you. Hugs, Kathi
