Change in Plan!

As a regular reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL), you'll be aware that I usually visit my co-worker/friend C, who is wheelchair bound, once per week.  In recent times, this has mostly been on a Monday.

This past Monday, was no different.

Usually, I make a meal that we share, together.  But, this past Monday, I didn't really feel like cooking.  In fact, I was feeling rather tired.  So instead, I picked up fish and chips, from our favourite fish 'n chip shop, Pat & Hanks!

We munched together, savouring the flavour of the Alaskan Pollock, that we both enjoy.  While C ate most of his meal, I took some home with me, like usual.

Being a Monday evening, almost every week I have either a reader's group or writer's group meeting to attend.  This week I was scheduled to attend my Windsor writer's group, Write on Windsor!

We used to meet at the Central (downtown) branch of the Windsor Library, on Ouellette Ave.  However, with that branch changing locations and for other reasons, our availability of the use of the premises had changed.

Consequently, we found a new location to meet at.  Now, our scheduled meetings will be held at the United Way office, on Giles Ave. E., here in Windsor.  Thank you, for allowing us the use of the space for our gatherings!

Knowing I was feeling rather tired, I had thought about cancelling out on my meeting.  But, after second thoughts, I decided that since I would be at C's for dinner, and since the meeting was nearby, I would just push myself and attend.

Well, after we enjoyed dinner together, I did some work on C's computer and then decided to check my e-mail, before heading out.  To my surprise, there were two (2) messages for me from women that I thought would be at the meeting.  Both, cancelled out.

Besides yawning beyond belief, I was feeling rather exhausted.  C suggested that instead of heading out, I should just stay at his place and watch Wheel of Fortune with him. 

At first, I argued the point.  But, realizing that I could have just as easily have fallen asleep on his couch, than stood up to walk, I decided to stay put.  Feeling badly, I must add, about not attending my writer's group meeting.  Sniff, sniff...

After praying silently, I watched the programme, with C.

Even though I was tired, I was able to solve most of the puzzles before the participants on the television show.  Much to C's dismay.  :(  Oops... I meant... :) !!

What had I prayed for?  For strength.  Thank You, Father, for granting me this request. 

There are a few Bible verses that I draw on, when I am tired.  One, is 2 Corinthians 12:10, "Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong."

Yes, it seems that whenever I am tired, He gives me strength, for He is my strength.  Thank You, Lord!

He can be your strength, too. 

All you need to do is to put your trust/faith in Him, once you are saved.  I alway recall one of my favourite Bible verses, when I think of being saved.  Remember, all you need to do is to believe on the Lord, Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved (Acts 16:31).

Until next time...
