Glad?

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I wrote about how I had a close call with disaster, on my way to my writer's group meeting, in Leamington.

After the incident, a little further up the road, the weather seemed to improve.  Less fog.

J and I met at the appointed time.  I got into his car and we continued on to the Art Gallery, in Leamington.

It was a great meeting.  I must admit, I truly enjoy this group.

Once again, a woman J, came and sat next to me, just like at the last meeting.  She's the person who lives in my apartment building.  Since she is a busy person, like myself, we decided that if we can, we will try to travel together, but it may not happen all that often.

B, the leader of our group, and I chuckled about calling each other cuz (short for cousin).  We chuckled even more, when I explained to him that I really shouldn't be calling him cuz, because in reality, I should call him... unc.  After all, he was my deceased husband Gordon's step-uncle. 

Poor fellow!  I'm sure this made his day.  At least we shared a laugh!

As J and I left Leamington, we chatted about how glad we were it wasn't foggy.  We spoke too soon.  Within a couple minutes of making those remarks, we were once again, in fog.

Being both born-again Christians, neither of us really was all that worried.  It was a good thing, because the truth of the matter was that it was difficult to see the road in some places!

Of course, by the time I reached home, I was certainly happy to be able to relax and prepare for some nighty-night sleep time!

Once again, I must say how grateful I am to God, for keeping a hedge of protection around me.

Why He does this, is beyond me.  A close friend of mine, with whom I pray fairly often, and I have discussed issues like this.  We agree that God must still have a plan for our lives, otherwise we wouldn't be here.

Sometimes, it's hard to see the forest for the trees.

Even though we, as humans, only see the micro-picture of our lives, God sees the macro-picture.  He knows everything about us.  And, He already knows the plans He has for our lives, plans to prosper us and not harm us, to give us hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). 

For this, I'll be eternally grateful!

If you would like to feel the way I do, being eternally grateful to God, all you need to do is to trust in Jesus for your salvation.  Nothing more; nothing less.  Jesus is the way, the truth and the life; no man comes to the Father, but by Him (John 14:6).  Trust in Jesus.  You'll be glad you did.


Until next time...
