Ooh Child...

It was late when I went to bed, for I had stayed up waiting for my co-worker/realtor friend L's seller in Vancouver to e-mail me, once again. It's a good thing I didn't hold my breath, because even though my night was short, his wasn't.

Okay. I won't bore you with the details; it's enough to say that I hope I won't go through a deal like this one, again any time, soon. I'll just tell you that today from 8:00 am, until after 4:00 pm, I worked on the deal. Finally! It was done! Praise God! Thank You, Jesus! Oh well, if life wasn't tough, it wouldn't be my life! :-)

This morning, the strange thing was that even though I had little sleep, I awoke on my own, without my alarm telling me it was time to do so. A song rang through my brain continually; it just wouldn't leave.

The song was, 'Ooh Child (Things Are Gonna Get Easier)'. Some of the lyrics are as follows:

Ooh child, things are gonna get easier
Ooh child, things'll get brighter
Ooh child, things are gonna get easier
Ooh child, things'll be brighter

Some day, yeah
We'll put it together and we'll get it all done
Some day
When your head is much lighter
Some day, yeah
We'll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun
Some day
When the world is much brighter

......Right now
You just wait and see how things are gonna be
Right now

Do you think there's a message, here?

Some mornings, I wake up with music in my head. My brain just seems to keep operating, even in my sleep. Sometimes, I feel like God speaks to me, this way. With messages, through music.

This is not new, for me. It's happened all my life. I wish God's Word, the Bible could tell me. For I know that the enemy also plants thoughts in our head.

Contrary to what some folks think, while satan does come to rob, kill and destroy, he doesn't come dressed in a red suit and pitchfork. He manipulates people's minds, plants thoughts and hides truth with lies that resemble truth closely enough that those who don't know God's word, believe his lies.

Still, only good has come from the music and lyrics that I have awoken with, over the years. So, I can only presume that it comes from God. Hopefully, this is God telling me that my life will improve.

To celebrate having her taxes finished and ready to be sent off, my friend J brought dinner to my home. While I supplied beverage and dessert, we feasted on Pat & Hank's fish 'n chips. Yummy, to say the least! Thank you, J. You spoil me rotten!

Afterwards, J and I went to Calvary Community Church, because it was 'movie night' (the last Saturday of the month). Before I could stop her, J paid my donation, in addition to hers. Well, I suppose you could say that this was really a 'treat Lynnie' evening! Thank you, J. Next time it's my turn!

Since tomorrow is my Lord's day, I suppose I should 'hit the hay'. Sleep well.

Until next time...
