Sticking With...

Last evening, I made arrangements for a heating company to come to my home, because my daughter P's boyfriend K, couldn't get the furnace pilot light lit, yesterday.

It bothered me all evening; I couldn't stop thinking about this, so I called P and we agreed to meet again, to try once more. So, this morning we met, along with P's friend T and her infant son. It took us only a couple of minutes to get the pilot light lit. We're not sure why K couldn't do it yesterday, but think it may be that he didn't know to press down on the button, while igniting.

Anyway, I was thrilled that it truly was just that the wind had blown out the pilot light, as it has done on rare occasion, in the past. Of course, I was more than happy to be able to call the heating company and cancel the pending service call. Praise God! Thank you, Jesus! Thanks to you, P and T, too!

Does this mean we can create a woman's joke about how to light a furnace? lol

Today, in addition to my regular work, I found time to do some baking. Unfortunately, I won't be able to tell you what I baked, until tomorrow! Otherwise, the person would know what I baked and why. I can tell you that I think it will taste good! ;-))

As you know, I needed to finish my bookkeeping, that I worked on, Saturday. Well, I can proudly tell you that I am finished! At least for the last quarter of 2009. And, I was able to make my remittance to CRA for my GST. Now, I can relax and not have to worry about this again, until April!

My friend M and I spoke by phone, today. It was a busy day for both of us, so we weren't able to get to meet in person. Still, we prayed for her and for her upcoming surgery, tomorrow. And, I told her once again that I love her. Please remember to pray for healing for M; thank you.

It's important to tell people you love that you love them, because we are never guaranteed tomorrow. In fact, unless God ordains it, we cannot even take our next breath.

I am so grateful that M is a believer, for there is nothing more important than having salvation. Let's face it, eternity is forever; forever is a l-o-n-g time. Better to go to heaven when our life is finished here on earth, than to go to spend forever, in hell with no chance of escape. And, how is this possible? Both M and I know that God tells us in the Bible, that it is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ, alone that we are saved; it is a gift from God and not of works, lest any man should boast. If you haven't been trusting in Jesus, I pray you will. Today, is the day; don't wait, for you're not guaranteed tomorrow.

This afternoon, I went out once more to my Chiropractor's office, for my regular treatment. Since he'll be off for the month of February, I wanted to make sure I saw him before his time off and have scheduled an appointment for when he returns. After my treatment I am supposed to rest. I did chill out for a short time at home, watching television around suppertime and found myself dozing. Oh dear! I hope this won't interfere with my sleep, tonight.

Then, for 6:00 pm, I was at my church for my creative writing group that meets every two weeks. It's not really a 'serious' group, for we have light-hearted, good and clean fun, when we meet. One of our members is writing a book that she is hoping will be ready for publishing, soon. We spent the whole class discussing her writing and how she could make some improvements. We are fortunate and blessed to have N heading the group. He currently works as an editor and is able to guide us with his professional knowledge. Thank you, N!

One day, I'll get back to writing the book I began writing, prior to Gordon's death. Since then, I just haven't really felt like writing. lol This must sound funny, because here I am daily writing in my blog!

So, in closing, I just want to say that I love each of you, who care enough about me, to be interested and read about the in's and out's of my sometimes boring and sometimes interesting life. Thank you, for sticking with me. I appreciate it more than you know.

Until next time...
