Cut Short...

Oops, if you've read recent entries of Life with Lynnie (LwL), you won't be surpised that I forgot to mention some events I feel are worth mentioning.  I seem to do this from time to time, especially when life is chaotic!

Last Friday, was the last Friday of the month, and so I was to meet with Heritage Park Alliance Church (HPAC) Legacy group, a group for people 50+.  Usually, the group meets in the evening, but this month was different.  The group meeting was held during the daytime.

A luncheon and bowling time had been prearranged and everyone who had purchased a ticket, participated. 

Even though I am more physically capable than I have been in many, many years, I still cannot bowl.  It is just too physically difficult for my body.  The truth is, I won't even try.

So, instead of participating in the entire event, I purchased only the ticket for the luncheon.  This way, I could meet with the group and join in on some level, without avoiding the whole event.

Off I went to the meeting place, where we met in a private room that Super Bowl Lanes, had provided for the group.  Together, we enjoyed some worship time, great food (pizza, dessert and beverages) and of course, fellowship time.

Unfortunately, my time of fellowship was cut short.

You see, when I had purchased my ticket, I wasn't aware that there was to be another healthcare meeting scheduled, that I felt I needed to attend.  In the past, you may have read what I wrote about the healthcare changes being made, through the General Motors Canada Ltd. (GM) policy changes.

So, I left the crowd of people at the bowling alley reception room and made my way across town to the Caboto Club.

Arriving a few minutes before the meeting was scheduled to begin, I signed a petition that was available, that would be presented to our Canadian Federal Government.  It seemed almost everyone did this. 

I was happy to see it.  Why?  Well, with recent changes pending, due to our latest Canadian budget that was recently released, it makes our plight as mostly GM retirees and/or their surviving spouses, even harder.

One thing I am grateful for, is the fact that God is in control, even when we feel things are out of control!

There's more for me to say about this and the meeting, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Oops, I must add something.  A prayer request. 

Please pray for my brother B, who will be having surgery, tomorrow.  Both his kidneys will be removed and he may be having heart surgery, as well.  Thank you, so very much.  May God bless you, friend.


Until next time...
