Fish?!

This entry was originally written and posted in Life with Lynnie (LwL) on blog.com, rather than here on blogspot.com, due to the problems I had posting any entry, here. Now that blogger has this site working properly again, I thought I would copy and repost here, to save you from having to back and forth between sites.

Fish?!

If you have been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL) for a while, you’ll know that I love SONday. Yes, today is my Lord’s day. And, I wasn’t able to go worship Him.

It made me sad, but there’s nothing I can really do about it. After all, I cannot drive myself. Nor, can I sit upright, for an extended period of time. It puts too much pressure on my incision, that is already partially open and infected.

One thing I am happy about, is the fact that my Lord, knows my heart. He knows that I worship Him, in spirit and in truth.

When I wrote yesterday’s entry, I mentioned about picking up fish & chips for myself, on the way home from my medical appointment.

After reading LwL‘s entry, one of my Facebook (FB) friends commented that she hoped I enjoyed them. Actually, I did!

Well, I need to qualify this.

Firstly, let me say that I divided that order into four (4) meals. Okay. Laugh if you like, but I did!

Since my surgery, I cannot eat a large portion of food at any one time. So, instead of gorging myself, I enjoyed those fish & chips for lunch and dinner on Friday, and again on Saturday!

Ah, you’re probably wondering how I could do this!

Well, a long time ago, I tried this once, and it worked. No, I do not reheat them in the microwave, for if I did, they would become rubbery and mushy.

What I do, is I place a foil-lined tray with the portion of fish & chips, in my toaster oven at about 400F, for about four to five (4 – 5) minutes. This might sound crazy, but it works!

The fish & chips exude some of the oil they were cooked in. And, it tastes like it was just made!

The funny thing is, that I am truly not a fish lover, although I enjoy some fish and seafood. So believe me when I say that I am surprised I enjoy fish & chips, so much!

Only once have I gone fishing; sort of! I never fished when I was with family who did. Nor, could I eat what they caught, for I felt so bad for the fish! So, I don’t fish, except for people.

After all, God did command His disciples to become fishers of men!

In Matthew 4:19, Jesus said, “And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”

Since I have redirected my life to fall in their footsteps, I do the same. Preach a gospel message, I mean. After all, we are commanded to help fulfill God’s Great Commission.

If you don’t know how to become saved, or born-again, it’s simple, friend. All you need to do is believe on/trust in Jesus Christ for your salvation, and you will be saved.


Until next time…
