Mix-up! & Where Will This Lead?!

If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that on Tuesday evening, I made a pan of Rich-style Peroghys (see yesterday's entry for the recipe).

Something happened Tuesday evening that totally threw a wrench into my schedule of events for Wednesday. 

The peroghys were made for me to bring to my church's 50+ group luncheon.  Thursday, was supposed to be my General Membership Meeting (GMM) for my real estate board.  And, unfortunately, Friday was to be the funeral of one of my church sisters, who died from cancer.

As normal, I checked my daytimer and my eyes did a double-take.  For some reason, my daytimer claimed my GMM was on Wednesday.  At first, I thought this was an error on my part, because our GMM's are usually on a Thursday, or a Friday, not a Wednesday.

Online, I checked and verified that indeed, the GMM was scheduled for Wednesday.  Now, what was I to do?

You see, I was supposed to attend the 50+ luncheon and the GMM.  Impossible! 

Since my friend C was to meet me at my church, I couldn't just cancel out from the 50+ group.  And, if I didn't attend my GMM, I would be issued a fine, that I would have to pay.  Besides, being a voting rep, I really needed to attend.

No, I didn't call C Tuesday evening, to tell him about the mix-up, because I believe he truly needs to begin worshipping somewhere, again.  And, I thought by him attending the luncheon, it might open the door for fellowship with believers. 

Instead, I called my friend W, who heads up the 50+ group and explained my problem.

We agreed that I would drop off the pan of food I had prepared, to her at her home, about 8 am, or just shortly after.  This way, I could go and attend my meeting, and although I would be late for the beginning of the 50+ luncheon, I would at least be able to attend.

I praised God and thanked Jesus, for making a way where there didn't appear to be one!

This is exactly what I did, Wednesday morning.  I also let C know I would be late.  Another surprise happened Wednesday at my GMM; the meeting lasted much longer than I anticipated!

By the time I reached my church, the luncheon was over; apparently earlier than normal, due to the fact that a speaker failed to show up.  Good old Murph (of Murphy's Law fame) is truly alive and well!

Still, C was glad he attended.  Not just because of the luncheon, either.  Apparently, a friend of mine, E who hadn't attended the 50+ meetings for a few months, was there.  And, she befriended C.

C was elated to have met E!  Hallelujah!

They will be keeping in touch with each other.  Who knows where this will lead?!

This whole day of events reminded me of Romans 8:28, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." 

Until next time...
