My Best Interests!

I apologize for interrupting my story, but I will continue it, tomorrow.

Today, is Sonday.  It's my Lord's day.

Today, is also the day when we changed our clocks back one (1) hour at 2:00 a.m..  Now we are on EST (Eastern Standard Time) and not Daylight Savings Time.

Last night's sleep wasn't very good, actually.  While I am sure I must have dozed off at some point through the night, I laid awake in my bed, mostly.

When I finally couldn't stand lying there anymore, I got myself up, got ready for church and went on Facebook (FB) for a while.  Eventually, I made my way across town to church.

If you've been a reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL), you'll know that I not only love worship, but adore worshipping on the first (1st) Sunday of each month.  Communion Sunday.  And, yes; it was wonderful!

After church, I did a couple of errands, including checking on the house I own, near my church. 

Across the street and up a few homes, lives a couple that I recently spoke with by telephone.  Neither the husband, nor the wife, are originally from Canada.  The husband is from Europe and the wife is from Indonesia.  English is not the first language of either of them.

During our previous telephone conversation, we discussed the fact that my book Love Never Fails You...  is now published and available.  The husband told me that he feels his wife should write her life's story, but realizes they would need someone to write it in English, because neither of them could do so.

In any case, we had agreed that I would drop by and discuss some of the issues with them.  Today, was the day.  More discussions may take place in the future, God willing.

I really couldn't tell whether or not the wife knows the Lord, but during this conversation and during a previous conversation, I wondered if she did.  I can tell you for sure that her husband is definitely an atheist, who admittedly hates Christianity as well as all other religions.

I'm sure you can guess that I will be praying for this couple, as I have done in the past.  Hopefully, you too, will pray for them and all who are lost and without hope, all who do not know and accept Jesus Christ as their Saviour.  Thank you.  May God bless you.

Making a stop at my real estate partner's home, we conversed over a couple of cups of coffee.  Of course, with the cemetary being close to his home, I made my way there, to visit Gordon's grave, on my way home.  Why I still do this, I don't know!  But, I do.

Enroute home, the Lord put it on my heart to stop at a store, where I had previously returned an insured DVR/VCR unit that wasn't any longer working.  At the time of the return, I was issued a credit for the amount, to be used only at this particular store.

Yesterday, the Lord had put it on my heart to check on-line and see if they had any DVR/VCR combination units, because they don't always have them in stock.  Their website told me they did!

After selecting the item, I went to cash out.  After locating the credit slip in my wallet, I looked at the information on the credit note.  My heart almost gave way, when I realized that today was the last day I could even use the credit note.

Believe me when I say that I praised God and thanked Jesus!  I hadn't realized it had to be used, by today.  But, God knew.  And, He made sure I didn't miss out on using the close to $100 voucher!  I felt blessed, for sure.

He never ceases to amaze me.  He always has my best interests at heart.  Even when I sometimes feel like life isn't the way I would like it to be.


Until next time...
