4th of July

What a wonderful fourth. My husband, two girls and myself went to a little resort in West Virginia for five days that's like going back in time to the 1950's. There is a flag raising each morning; breakfast, lunch and dinner bells where we gather to eat family style in the dining hall; no air conditioning; game rooms for family games; rooms to do puzzles. We sit around with friends and chat, take long walks and longer naps. On the fourth there was a fireworks show over the mountains and watermelon afterwards. All in all, just a wonderful time.
The best news was our friend, who has a rare bone marrow cancer, was able to be with us and is improving slowly but steadily from his bone marrow transplant. My girls and theirs are reconnecting and enjoying each other-a real blessing.

Hi Siesta! Saw your profile and thought we might get to know each other better. I was "tagged" by Darla, another Siesta. We are supposed to tell 5 things we "dig" about Jesus--so I'm tagging you.

You're welcome to visit my blog, too.

Five things I love about Jesus:
-He's faithful.
-He loves me.
-He never gives up on me(Is that a repeat answer?).
-He's always with me.
-He's the same yesterday, today and forever.
That was really hard because how do you express the deepest relationship you have in just 5 things!
