Fellowship!

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.

Fellowship!

It’s been a while since I wrote in Life with Lynnie (LwL) about my comings and goings.

As you know, since I am still recovering from major surgery, I haven’t really done much, other than attend doctor’s appointments. At least until last Saturday.

The 10th of November was when the Women of Influence conference was held.

A few months ago, I was invited to work on the committee arranging the conference. And, I did. Until I got sick and had the surgery. Then, I had to step down.

Some women I knew were to be there. But, one (1) friend had a ticket and she didn’t know anyone attending.

Not wanting my friend M to go alone, for I didn’t think she would, I decided to take a chance, and join her. Besides, if we didn’t attend, it would have been a waste for both of us.

M agreed to pick me up and drive me to the conference, about a five (5) minute drive from where I live. We arrived at the centre, got signed in and took a seat at a rear table. This way, if we needed to leave early, we wouldn’t make any disturbance.

Along with me, I had a fold-up lawn chair. When I felt pain from being seated upright too long, I slightly reclined in the chair we brought.

Of course, I did have to take something for pain.

Truly, I was happy I had gone with M. Another friend C and a friend of hers joined us at our table. It seemed all had a wonderful time!

The speakers were great. So, was the music. And, the food.

But, to me, the fellowship was the best!

This reminded me of Philippians 2:1-2, “If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.”

God told us to have fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ. And, we certainly did, that day. And not just by having a fun time. Rather, by being consoled and supported by those whose messages offered encouragement.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time…
