Gift!

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.

Gift!

In recent Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries, I’ve written about my healing, or lack thereof, with reference to my incision.

Yesterday, an assessment nurse visited me. She made recommendations to my surgeon about changing treatment, because the current treatment hasn’t been working.

Today, the surgeon was supposed to recheck my not-yet-healed incision. Just as I was about to leave home, his office called and rescheduled, once again.

My daughter’s boyfriend S, and my eldest grandson were on their way to get me. When they arrived, we went and did other tasks I needed done.

Off we went, to the post office. I thank them for carrying all the items!

For about a week, I had been slowly wrapping gifts that needed to be shipped overseas, to Northern Ireland. Last evening,
I made sure I had just about everything ready, including the most of the customs forms (I ran out, and had to do a couple, today).

A few cents shy of $240.00 is what it cost me to ship those gifts! Be still my heart!

Maybe I should have said, be still my wallet!

Anyway, it’s done, now. Truthfully, it was a rather daunting task for me, because I am truly not ready to do this kind of thing. But, I took my time and did not overdo it, at any given time.

After treating them to a Subway lunch, we picked up a few grocery items and went home.

S was such a great help to me! He removed the no-longer-working television (tv) from my livingroom. Then, moved the bedroom tv into my livingroom, where my digital receiver is located. After hooking up the antenna wire, we tried the tv.

It worked! Praise God! Hallelujah!

For the first time in about a week, I now have tv to watch! Thank you, S. You’ve been a true blessing to me, helping me in so many ways! May God bless you…

Yes, I waited. And, waited patiently. Unsure if I would ever again be able to watch any tv, while I was still recovering.

God worked it out!

This reminded me of James 1:17, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”

Yes, being able to watch tv is a wonderful gift. One I am thankful for.

But, the best gift I have ever received, is the gift of salvation, by trusting in Jesus Christ. And, in Him, alone.

If you do not yet know Jesus as your Saviour, please read the New Testament Bible. Or, contact me.


Until next time…
