As you would know if you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I drove by Jack Miner's in Kingsville, on my way home, from Leamington, on Sunday.
Tears streamed down my face, after I passed by, because I realized that the last time I had actually visited there, Gordon and I had been together.
My tears didn't last long, though. Just as I began to cry, it began raining. Being a country road, the rain made it rather slick to drive upon, so my mind was taken off my emotions and I concentrated on my driving.
Since I hadn't prepared a meal for my brother B, his girlfriend P and I to enjoy together, because I wasn't aware we'd be having supper together, I stopped at a grocery store close to my home.
By the time I got home, unpacked, and began organizing dinner, B & P arrived.
We enjoyed great conversation. For me, it was wonderful to actually sit at my table with some of my family, and enjoy dinner.
Together, we feasted on chicken, caesar salad, baked potatoes, dinner rolls, followed by dessert of those great homemade donuts from Colasanti's and apple cider! We finished up with a cup of French Vanilla Cappuccino. Mmmm...
My daughter P and my grandson N (a son of my daughter B) dropped by for a short visit, before everyone parted and went their way.
I was truly grateful to have spent time with family, today. It doesn't happen all that often, so when it does, it truly makes my day. God truly blessed me!
However, there is something I must ask of you, once again.
In the past, I mentioned that my brother B needed to have surgery. He'll be having his surgery, very soon. What needs to be done is even more intensive and dangerous than originally thought.
Please pray for my brother, B. Thank you for this, friend. May God bless you.
Dear heavenly Father, may it be Your will to wrap Your loving arms around my brother, lift him up, encourage him and provide for his every need. May it be Your will to provide total, restorative healing, through his upcoming surgery. May You provide the surgeon with wisdom, guidance and the ability to surgically provide healing for B. And, we thank You, in advance. We pray this and ask this in Jesus' precious name. Amen.
Until next time...
