Blessings and Fun Times!

Thursday, as you would know if you read yesterday's entry, was a rather tiring, stressful day.  However, I must take the time to thank you for prayer for my daughter P...and for my friend J in Texas, who needs a lung transplant. 

God answered the prayer regarding my daughter P, at least partially, so far.  What I mean is that the pins and needles feeling and numbness she felt, has since left her.  Praise God!  Thank You, Jesus!  It has now left behind, only pain.  In case you are not aware, P cannot take pain medicines, due to the meds she takes for Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis.  So, continued prayer would be appreciated.

Same with my friend J, who needs a lung transplant.  Continued prayer would be appreciated. 

May God bless each of you, as you pray for these and other people, who are in need of healing.

My daughter P's surgery didn't take all day, but when we left the hospital, we both agreed we were hungry.  So, we stopped to have something to eat before I took her home.  It was good that the freezing was still in effect at that time, for it allowed her to at least feel comfortable, for a short while. 

We stopped for coffee at one location and then our meal at another (lol).  Thank you, P!  It was a great idea; I appreciate being with you and thank you for sharing the cost. 

Arriving home, I was absolutely exhausted.  Less than two (2) hours sleep can do this to me!

In any case, I looked at the clock.  Hmmm...  Since I hadn't planned any work, being unsure of how long we would be at the hospital, and since it seemed I had time, I decided to have a short nap. :-))

I'm sure I could have found stuff to do, both for work and for me (like write another chapter in the book I am currently writing), but instead I dozed for a short while.  Well, it was either that or risk dozing off in the evening, when I knew for sure I wanted to be wide awake!

After my short nap, I got ready and went to do my exercise which I had rescheduled for late in the afternoon.  Ah, once again I felt tired.  Even so, I jumped in the shower, got ready and headed out, once again.

Stopping to pick up pizza at my favourite pizza place, I arrived at my friend M's home slightly later than I had originally planned on.  M, her daughter N who is in need of heart surgery (yes, please pray for N, also!  Thanks!) and I enjoyed our dinner/supper.  It was my pleasure to do this for them, since N is rather confined to home and I know they both appreciate eating pizza, on occasion.  Besides, I enjoy it, too!

Later, M and I went to Caesars Windsor  to watch a performance by Celtic Crossroads.  If you've read most or all my past entries in Life with Lynnie (LwL), you'll know that on one other occasion M thought we would be able to see a performance there, but it didn't work out.

In case you haven't read about this previously, M has a relative who is a high-roller type gambler, who frequents the casino.  M could never do this herself, especially on limited income after being an injured worker, but her relative's kindness in creating a points card in M's name, allows M to utilize perks she wouldn't otherwise obtain.  One such perk was being able to get a pair of tickets to this show; we sat in great seats on the main floor, in area F6, Row 4, seats 1 & 2.

Yesterday's two (2) performances by Celtic Crossroads were the group's premier into Canada.  You may think this group would be from Ireland.  If you thought this, you would only be partly correct.  While they did meet up and begin performing in Ireland, some members of this extremely talented group of musicians and dancers are from Denmark, New Zealand, the USA and I believe Scotland (I may be recalling incorrectly), with the rest being from Ireland.

I cannot rave about their performance, enough.  It was absolutely wonderful!  If you have the chance to see them, please do so.  You'll be happy you did.  Just as I am happy I did; thank you, M.  Blessings to you.


Until next time...
