����Simple and free until I'm dead����

Live your life to the fullest. You only have one life to live. 

"I want to live a simple life without stress or worry. I don't need a lot of stuff. I just want to be happy".... And I would add content. 

Sweet dreams everyone.

Dear God...

Dear God,

I'm trying my VERY best.
But I NEED some rest.
I am tired and drained by the pain.

Will you please heal my body?
Mend my heart?
Will you restore my mind?

I need you more and more each day. Searching for answers.. I know you have a perfect plan and use everything for your glory. Please hear my prayer and heal me.

Your daughter Deanna

Most beautiful.. Most kind.. Most loving.

Happy Mother's Day to an amazing women.

She raised 4 kids, not just raised. But homeschooled, loved, cried with, comforted, helped 4 children. I don't know how she did it. But she did. She also married her high school sweet heart and has been happily married for over 30 years. They have shown Jon and I was a true marriage is all about. She has also been here for me through two sicknesses... She comforts me daily. Is there to talk anytime of night. Hugs me, encourages me, loves me unconditionally. My mother is what the bible writes about.. She is a Godly example of a mother.. A wife.. A sister.. And one day a Grandmother. I can't wait to give her grandchildren. Her love for children is shown in the smile that lights up when she sees them. Anyone who meets my Mom automatically falls in love with her. Her laugh can be heard from near.. And far *snicker*. Her smile can brighten the worst of days. Her giving heart is there for you no matter what.

So here's to you Mom! I am blessed to have you. May Gods face continue to shine upon you and be gracious to you.

I've learned a lot from my Mom. How to live my life to the fullest. How to not take people for granted. Who to give with your whole heart. How to love with passion. How to care for others even when they don't care back. How to cook. How to clean. How to save money. How to pray. How to put  God first. How to be a Godly wife. How to love. How to be goofy. How to bug (just ask jon.. Hehe my mom and I are the best at this!!) how to have fun!!. The list could go on and on. But mostly... What I've learned...

Is that no matter what... No matter who hurts me.. No matter what happened...

She is there for me.

For all that you do. For all that you are. Thank you Mom!

Love you more than anyone could possibly imagine.

Your little Deanna

Its beginning to feel a lot like SUMMER...

Sun through the rain...

Seeing the good through a difficult time

Its been a busy couple weeks. I've been dealing with a sickness that has crippled me with pain. I am so thankful for the Doctors and nurses in Almonte General Hospital for all there help in finding me specialist and helping me with getting on the right pain meds. I'm thankful for the family God has blessed me with and how they have looked out for me. I'm thankful for our Church and the prayers and lovely messages I have received. I'm thankful for my husband, my soul mate, my best friend.. who once again has proven he took our vows as seriously as I did. When we said through sickness and health.. good times and bad.. we really meant it.

Sometimes its hard to see the light.. the good... the reason why things are happening.. especially through the pain... BUT...

I'm learning God is good.. God is in control.. God has a plan.. He does all things to HIS glory. He doesn't give you more than you can handle. I know that because.. He is always a prayer away. He can handle all things. When in doubt pray.. when lost read the bible.. when unsure speak to your pastor.. when in pain at night talk to your spouse.. God places so many people in your life to help you through the good times and the bad. You just have to be willing to listen. 

I'm listening...

We have had a busy couple of months here is a summary of the last couple of weeks in photos. Enjoy!! We have had a blast getting things done around the house. I've enjoyed shopping with my Mom, days out with the Nephews and niece, relaxing with my Mother-in-law, walks with my Father-in-law in the bush, dates with my Dad, and special memories made with my one true love. I hope you enjoy scrolling through these... May you be blessed.

This is the perfect picture to end with...

This last couple months has been difficult. I've had to make changes, I've had to go down roads I never thought I would have to. But life is a journey.. It really is.. sometimes a new adventure or new road will bring more blessings than you can imagine. Even though it can be difficult. Trust in God. He will bless you.

Blessings in Him,
