His Everything...

Before I continue discussing my thoughts regarding yesterday, I must thank my friend K, from across the hall. 

As you know, from time to time, we cook for each other.  Exchanging meals is something we do fairly regularly.

Earlier in the week, after I provided dinner for us, K mentioned she would cook on the weekend.  Well, yesterday was the day.

After being in the pool and wondering what I should have for dinner, because I didn't feel like cooking, I arrived home to find my dinner waiting for me.

Thank you, K.  I appreciated dinner yesterday, more than you are probably aware.  May God bless you, not just for the delicious meal, but for you, for your friendship, and for your Christian love to me.

As you know if you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I was feeling rather sad, yesterday.  Grief-filled, once again. 

It was Gordon's birthday and I was missing him, very much.

As usual when I am feeling this way, God reminds me that He is truly in control of everything in my life. I belong to Him. He will use me as He sees fit.

He lifts me up.  He encourages me.  He provides for me.  Always. 

It matters not to Him, if I am happy or sad, looking up or looking down.  After all, what we call happiness here on earth is of little importance to God. 

Now, if I didn't have joy, that would be a different story.  But, I do have joy, in my Lord!

He promised to never leave me, nor forsake me.  He doesn't.  He promised to be with me always, even 'til the end of the age.  Amen!

God obviously has a plan for my life. Who am I to question this?

To the world, I am no one. Nobody. Nothing. Garbage.

To God, I am important. I am His child. I am everything.  And, so are you... if you belong to Him.


Until next time...
