Wednesday evening, while seated in my comfy recliner chair, I noticed some movement out of the corner of my eye. This is not a common occurrence, because I live on the 17th floor of a highrise apartment building.
While there is some traffic movement along the road, that part of my view is basically out of my viewing area. The majority of my range is the marinas, and water of both part of the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair.
As I turned my head ever so slightly, to peer outside, a smile came to my face. Of course, I thought. It's that time of year, once again!
Sailboats were coming around Peche Island, in droves. No, I didn't take a photo, because I thought I had one on file. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it. It may have been on my older computer, the one that I still haven't emptied or transferred all my files from.
One day, I'll have to get around to doing that. But then, you know what those round-to-its are like, don't you? Or, maybe I'll just take another pic for you to be able to see what I mean.
In any case, one of my first thoughts was of my now deceased husband, Gordon. How he loved to watch those sailboats, every Wednesday evening.
Sometimes, he would go down to the water's edge to watch them. I should tell you that the reason there are so many sailboats in this area all at the same time, is because over in Michigan, USA, sailboat lessons are given and even though I live in Canada, they come right by the property.
All in all, it was a rather a happy, yet sad feeling that I experienced. Oh well. Life goes on!
Thursday evening was a really enjoyable one for me!
My neighbour/friend and fellow writer J, who lives here in my building and I drove out to Leamington, to attend our writers' group meeting. Last time she attended I had driven, so this time, J drove. Thank you, J! It's always nice to have a break from doing the driving!
Enroute, we stopped just outside the town of Essex, to pick up our fellow writer J, who usually carpools with us. By 7:00 p.m., we were in the Leamington Arts Centre, along with our fellow members and a couple of guest speakers.
It was a truly wonderful meeting! The humour and discussions we shared, lifted not just my spirits, but it seemed to me, the spirits of all in attendance.
Lord, I can only thank You, for always providing. But then, you promised that to all of Your children.
There are many Bible verses that tell us this, but the first one that came to my mind was Matthew 6:26, "Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather
into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than
Friend, if you want God to provide for you, and if you are not yet trusting in Jesus Christ, please do so, today.
Trusting in Jesus, is how you become one of God's children. It's not hard. And, please realize, God loves you. We're told this in John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Obtain your everlasting life. Come to Jesus Christ, now. He's waiting for you!
Until next time...
