50+

Yesterday, after working out at my friend's gym, I returned home to bake some cookies.  One of my favourites.  Peanut butter cookies!

After showering and changing into clothing not suitable to work out/exercise in, I made my way over to the YMCA/YWCA (Y).  I was a good girl!  I did my one and a quarter (1 1/4) hour workout in the pool.

Then, it was time to once again get cleaned up, so I could head over to my church.  Being the third (3rd) Wednesday of the month, it was time for our 50+ group luncheon.

We enjoyed some beautiful music, sang hymns and had a presentation by representatives of Bibles For Missions (BFM) resale shop.  In case you aren't aware, BFM operates about 40 resale shops across Ontario.  Our local shop raised over $150,000 last year.

Where does the monies raised go?  It is sent to The Bible League of Canada www.bibleleague.ca/ who sends Bibles FREE to pastors around the world, in whatever languages are available.  Not just English.

We shared a delicious lunch provided by our church group volunteers, of soup and sandwiches.  Followed by tasty desserts supplied by all in attendance.  Now you know why I baked the cookies!

Afterwards, we had another speaker. 

A woman whose family is what I would call a military family.  Not only had she and her husband both served Canada in the military in the past, but her children, and other family members have served or are serving, also.

With Remembrance Day being only a week ago, I was happy to hear her presentation.

J explained to us what had been happening in Afghanistan.  Most of what she said, is rarely if ever reported about, by mainstream news stations, here in Windsor.  I was grateful to be able to hear what she had to say.

I want you to know I tried to copy J's notes to post them, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), but was unable to do so.  Oh, I was able to copy and insert.  The problem was that the print was too small to read.  When I enlarged, then it was large enough to read, but the edge was cut off.

In the end, I decided to just rewrite J's notes, exactly as she originally wrote them. 

I am grateful to J for giving me a copy to use, as well as permission to use them, here on LwL.  Thank you, J!  Hopefully, readers will be blessed as I was, hearing what you had to say.

Hopefully, you will tune in tomorrow, to hear what J had to say.  If you are like me, you may be blown away!!


Until next time...
