Tempted?!

As previously arranged by my church sister W, a few church sisters and I met at W's home for lunch, this past Wednesday.

If you've been a long time reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL), you'll know that this is not something I do, often. 

Actually, this week was supposed to be a time when I was supposed to have a few ladies join me for a time of fellowship in my pool and a BBQ.  However, this didn't take place, because one of my friends that was to join me, got sick after eating something she was allergic to.  No sunshine for her, at the moment!

I was truly thankful to have been invited to W's.  This is not something she does often, either!  Hosting a luncheon, I mean.

Each of us arrived, dish in hand.  W already had what she had told us she was preparing for our meal, so what we brought added to the menu.

Together, we enjoyed a blessed time of fellowship, in addition to a tasty meal.  Thank you, W.  I enjoyed myself, immensely, as I'm sure our friends did, also.

Afterwards, W led us to her familyroom.  We each took a seat where we could watch a DVD she planned to show us.

To be honest, I do not know the name of the play, that was recorded on the DVD.  Hopefully, soon I will, because I asked her to order me three (3) copies.

What was recorded?

Well, W's son N is a writer.  In fact, he led my writer's group that used to meet at my church.  At least, until he and his wife moved to Chatham, about an hour's drive from where we live, in Windsor.

N wrote a play.  The play was acted out at his church.  And, the event was recorded.

I must honour N, by saying that he did a wonderful job.  Writing, editing, producing (along with the pastor and music leader) and directing.  Not to mention that he, himself, played the lead roll.

Hmmm... I'm tempted to tell you what the play was about, where it took place and more.  However, I don't want to ruin it for you, if in fact this play makes a name for itself in the Christian community.  So, for now, I must keep this a secret.  Shhh...

Kudos to you, N!  May God bless you for the work you did for Him!

Tempted.  This reminds me of a Bible verse.  James 1:13, "Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:" 

One thing I am grateful for, is the fact that God, in His word has shown me that whenever I am tempted, it is not from Him.  It is indeed from the evil one, and not my Lord.

Are you tempted?  Do you know God's Word? 

If you don't make a habit of reading the Bible, I would suggest you do.  If you never have read His Word, I would suggest you begin reading in the New Testament.  This is the covenant God made for you, and I.

May you be blessed, friend.


Until next time...
