Strengthened...

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.

Strengthened…

If you read yesterday’s Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you’ll know that I enjoyed my instant French Vanilla Cappuccino (FVC), for the first time in over six (6) weeks! Mmmm… it was good!

Today, I made a pot of tea. This was also something I hadn’t had in close to a month, since I couldn’t drink any, while taking the antibiotics prescribed to me.

Afterwards, I couldn’t resist. I made myself another FVC! I wish you could see the smile on my face!!

A couple other things made me happy, today.

My friend M and I had a long telephone conversation. Almost two and a half (2 1/2) hours in length.

Are you cringing? lol I was shocked! But, the reality is that we don’t speak often, so when we do, we never seem to run out of things to discuss.

By the time we hung up, my ear felt like it might fall off! Still, I enjoyed every minute.

Later, I forced myself to sit at my computer and do something I had been putting off. I had been procrastinating, because I knew how difficult it would be for me to sit up straight for the length of time I needed to complete the first (1st) of the three (3) online courses I need to complete.

As a realtor, I must complete 24 credit hours of education. In a classroom, or online, doesn’t matter. Except to me, at the moment.

With my partly-opened and infected incision, I feel I couldn’t really spend an entire day seated for a classroom environment. But, spending all that time on the computer isn’t easy, either.

I must explain that before I got sick early in September, I had already signed up for the online courses. So, that’s what I began working on, today. One (1) down; two (2) to go!

Before I began working online, I prayed. For God’s help.

This reminded me of Nehemiah 6:9, “For they all made us afraid, saying, Their hands shall be weakened from the work, that it be not done. Now therefore, O God, strengthen my hands.”

Truthfully, I was concerned, prior to praying. But, I trust God, with every part of my life. I knew that if there was a way for me to complete the work I needed done, He would make a way for me.

And, He did. Thank you, Lord!


Until next time…
