Love...

This entry was originally written and posted in Life with Lynnie (LwL) on blog.com on November 21/12, 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.

Love…

Here is the posting I tried to make, yesterday. For some reason… ‘blog.com’ wasn’t working properly, and I couldn’t post it.

If you’ve read Life with Lynnie (LwL) for a while, you’ll know that I often have trouble sleeping.

Last night, I barely slept. Less than four (4) hours!

It wasn’t because I slept during the day yesterday, because I didn’t. There are just times when I feel so very tired that I can hardly keep my eyes open. Until I climb into bed.

Then… boing! I am awake!

The longer I lay there unable to drift off, the more frustrated I get. Eventually, I get up!

Once out of bed last night, I watched a movie. Terms of Endearment, starring Jack Nicholson, Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger.

Believe it or not, I had never seen it, before! I found it to be a great movie.

But, it sure made tears flow down my cheeks.

I know. I know. It’s just a movie. Still, it is a reflection upon real life.

And, let’s face it. Life isn’t easy. It’s hard. Even for a Christian, like me. Once again, I must say that it bewilders me how anyone can make it through this life, without Jesus!

When my alarm rang this morning, I got up. Just after I read the paper and did the puzzles, I got a call from my daughter, B.

She made herself available to help me take some copies of my book to my friend W’s home.

Last year, W held an Avon Open House. She had invited me and a few others who baked or made items, to join her. I offered copies of my book for sale. And, was happy God had provided for me. I sold 10 copies, there! Thank you, W!

This year, W is doing this again this upcoming Saturday. And again, she invited me to join her.

Unfortunately, since I recently overdid it, sitting at the women’s conference, and since I still cannot drive, I let W know that I could not participate.

W, suggested I drop off signed copies of my book to her. This is what my daughter B helped me do, today. Thank you, B!

If you’re in the area, and would like to obtain a copy of Love Never Fails You… or, if you’d like to attend the Avon Open House, please drop by 10260 Eastcourt Dr., Windsor, ON between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 24th.

Just so you know, if you can’t attend, but would like information on how to obtain a copy of Love Never Fails You… click on the following links: www.lynniebooks.blogspot.com or http://www.amazon.com/Love-Never-Fails-You-McKenzie/dp/1613798105.

Throughout the day, I thought about the Christian love I have received from W. Thank you, W! She has been such a good friend, and supportive of me. I feel blessed.

This reminded me of 1 John 4:7-8, “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.”

I am truly thankful for the Christian love I have received from W and others. Including you, friend.

May God bless you.


Until next time…
