Glory!

Now that I understand better what my not feeling great may be attributed to, I thought I should take the time to write about it, here in Life with Lynnie (LwL).

Last Thursday, was a busy day for me.

I was expecting company for a swim and bbq, so I spent much of the afternoon preparing the food I planned to serve.

A little later than she expected, my mortgage broker/friend, Mary Ann Lehmann called me to let me know she, her husband R, and son R were on their way.  After reminding her of how to meet me at the pool area, I packed up all the food planned for our dinner.

Instead of going directly to the pool, where I was to meet them, I took our dinner over to the barbeque and picnic area.  There I secured the table for us to use, in case a crowd developed who wanted to use the lightly covered eating area; as happens from time to time.

I was so thankful I had thought about using my laundry basket on wheels, in order to help me carry all the insulated food bags I used to carry our food in. It allowed me to bring beverages, that would have proven to be heavy for me. Plus, I was able to bring dessert as well. All, in one trip! Halleujah!

Then, I made my way to the pool.

It had only been a few days since I had begun working out in the pool, once again.  You may recall that my neck, shoulder and arm had been giving me some pain and trouble, after recently lifting my friend C's wheelchair.

After doing about half of my normal exercise programme in the pool, Mary Ann and her family, arrived!

As it turned out, R and R joined me in the pool, but Mary Ann had decided before leaving their home that she would just watch us have fun in the pool.  And, she did.  Watch us have fun in the pool, I mean!

Eventually, we made our way over to the picnic area and I barbecued our steak. 

Together, we prayed.  And, of course, enjoyed our meal!

Once the light began fading, Mary Ann and her family headed for home.  I wheeled the cart back upstairs, after saying goodbye to my friends.

Truly, I was so happy and thankful to have had this family join me, for a fun and delicious evening!  At first, I felt absolutely great!  Happy.  Content.

Then, things changed.

When it grew close to my bedtime, I began to feel sick.  Nothing I could really put my finger on.  I just didn't feel well.

Psalm 105:3 came to mind, "Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord."

It's easy to glory in His holy name, when life is simple, easy and going well.  It's definitely not an easy thing to do, when faced with what I became faced with that night at bedtime!

Oh well, my Lord helped me!  Thank You!  I couldn't have made it through, without You.

Oops, I hope you don't mind, but I will have to write tomorrow, about what happened to me!


Until next time...
