In Control?

If you've read recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries, you'll know that I had been working on compiling information needed to complete my 2011 income tax return. 

Well, this past Monday was a busy day for me.  Finally, I finished doing this arduous task. 

Please don't be confused.  I have not yet completed the form, itself.  This is another daunting task, yet to be completed.  But, at least I believe I completed sorting out and gathering the information required!

Praise God!  Hallelujah!

In the late afternoon, I found myself rushing to post LwL's entry, before heading out to my writer's group meeting, here in town, at the Windsor Public Library.  Even in my rush, I remembered to bring a book with me that I needed to return at any branch of the library.

Our group was once again, incomplete. 

However, even though some people were not in attendance, we had a couple join us who were new to our group, but who were known to many there, due to being members of a poetry group, previously.

Many of our writers in this group, are poets.

While I write the occasional poem, I must say that poetry is not really my forte.  Even so, I brought with me my recent poem Sense for Cents...  You know the one.  I recently posted it on LwL.

Each of us had been requested by our facilitator to write a poem regarding the penny, whose demise is pending, here in Canada.

It amazed me that most people were in agreement with my opinion, regarding the issue.

One person even commented that since we are headed to a paperless society, it seems silly to regard the penny issue as a major one.  After all, on paper, every cent will still matter.

Oh well.  What can I say?  It is just one more proof that when I say our government officials do not really represent us, or our feelings, it is the truth.

Knowing that we are not truly in control can be upsetting from time to time.  And, even though I believe we as individuals must speak up regarding issues of life, one fact remains.  Not even our government is in control. 

The real and solid truth is that God is the One in control.  And, I praise God for this!  Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
