H.B. & Calm...

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.

H.B. & Calm…

Before I begin today’s entry, I must wish my grandson D, a very Happy Birthday!

In yesterday’s Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I mentioned my daughter B asked me to come stay with her, at least overnight.

It took me most of yesterday afternoon to pack up. It wasn’t like I was moving or anything, but I did have much I felt I needed to take with me.

With not being able to bend much, lift or carry, packing wasn’t made easy. Still, I managed.

B’s boyfriend S, loaded my things into my van. Then, he drove me to B’s home.

To my surprise, B already had supper made. It was delicious! And, I enjoyed spending the evening with some of my grandchildren.

I’m not sure if it was due to not being in my own bed, but I did have some trouble sleeping. Of course, it may have been due to the high winds!

Windsor and Essex County were expecting more damage from Hurricane Sandy, but it seemed to change course slightly.

Yes, we have damage. But, not as much as had been suggested.

Today, B had to go to the hospital, for a medical appointment. She was supposed to be x-rayed again, for her broken shoulder. Unfortunately, her card had been written incorrectly. Her appointment time was written differently in their records than on her card.

B will have to return next week, instead.

Afterwards, we met up with my daughter P, who had been at a local medical centre, as well. Even though it was a quick stop, I was glad to at least have been able to see her.

While I knew I wouldn’t see P’s son D, I was happy that she was able to take my birthday gift to him.
Some may think it was just good timing. I believe that nothing happens that surprises God. He provides for us, always.

Thinking of the winds and storm reminded me of when Jesus was in the boat with His disciples. Matthew 8:24-26 tells us, “And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.”

While many people have suffered with ‘Sandy‘. Many are still suffering. But, my Lord took care of us here, in comparison. I am truly thankful that He calmed the storm for us, here.

Please join me in prayer for those who live in areas that have been devastated. Thank you. May God bless you…

Until next time…
