There’s something I haven’t yet mentioned on Life with Lynnie (LwL). Last Saturday afternoon, my livingroom television (tv) died.
Before my nurse arrived to clean/redress my partly-opened and infected incision, we had a few power shortages. Each time, the power failed just long enough where I had to reset the clocks I could reach, without bending, lifting or stretching.
While my nurse was here, the power failed. Totally. When she was ready to leave, it came back on. I was happy to have power again, because otherwise, she would have had to walk down 17 floors to exit my building!
After this, I tried to watch tv. It turned on, but after about 20 minutes, it shut off. This happened time and time, again… until finally, it wouldn’t stay on even a minute.
This shocked me, thinking that the power surges that had happened that day, probably damaged the television, since it was on. Okay, now you know my secret! Even when I am doing computer work or whatever around the apartment, it’s usually on, even if I’m not focussed on it.
But, I had it plugged into a surge-protected power bar! It obviously wasn’t working right, or else I was misled into thinking it was surge-protected, when it wasn’t.
In any case, since then, I have not been able to watch any tv.
Instead, I caught up on some reading and did a few things that I could physically do, to fill my time. Still, it’s pretty boring, when you’re used to being able to enjoy your favourite tv shows, and find you can’t!
I’ve questioned myself about this. Is it truly a need? Or, just a want?
Obviously, it’s a want. We all know this. Including, God!
He knows all our desires. Psalm 38:9 tells us, “Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee.”
Nothing is hidden from God. Even my desire to watch tv, again.
My daughter P told me that her boyfriend would come and remove my livingroom tv. And, he would bring from my bedroom an older one, so I can watch tv, while I am recovering from surgery. Unfortunately, he’s become ill. Please pray for him. Thank you; may God bless you…
Since I am hooked up to the building antenna, I cannot use the bedroom tv at this time, because I only have one (1) digital receiver and it’s located in the livingroom.
So, I’m hoping that my daughter B’s boyfriend S, will do this for me.
Nope; I’m not crossing my fingers. I’m trusting God for this!
Until next time…
