As I've been writing about a lot lately in Life with Lynnie (LwL), I haven't been feeling the greatest.
Since it wasn't clear to me if I was going to be able to drive before Christmas, I had sort of made up my mind, that I was not going to go visit my friends and past clients this year. lol Many past clients have become friends!!!
Usually, I have Christmas cards written, and visit each client/friend. Not for a lengthy visit, but just for short time, to wish them and their families Merry Christmas. After all, many of these people have become friends through our past experience!
With not knowing if I was going to be able to drive, before Christmas, I didn't think I would be doing any visitation. And, not being able to lift much of anything, just the thought of me doing what I normally do, made me cringe... thinking about what it would do to me, physically.
However, once my nurse told me she would be discharging me shortly, I thought differently. After all, even though I don't have clearance from the doctor, if she's discharging me because there isn't anything more she can do for me, I should be able to drive, then.
Knowing that I had in my possession some things I needed to use in this endeavour, I began to arrange my thoughts so that I would work on becoming better organized to do what I need to do. Even if I am really behind schedule!
And, I called a friend of mine who is wonderful at cooking and baking. Everything V makes is delicious!
A couple of years ago, V began baking banana breads in different varieties. Some with raisins, some with chocolate chips, and some with apple.
Knowing that I like to support friends like her, who make things and sell them, I ordered some from her, in the past. People who received them as gifts loved them. So, I decided to do this, once again.
After my nurse left this morning, for the final time, V called me. She let me know she would be bringing my order of breads to me, at my apartment. How wonderful of her! Thank you, V. May God bless you for doing this.
When V arrived, she let me know that in addition to what I had ordered from her, she brought me a banana bread for myself. Hmmm... yummy, I thought. Once again, I thank you, V. Not just for doing what you did, but for being such a good friend to me.
Talking about friends. It made me think about what a friend we have in Jesus. And, the song with the same title.
Of course, a Bible verse came to mind, also. John 15:15, "Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you."
Wow! There's no better friend, than Him! Jesus.
After all, He gave up His life to cleanse those who believe on Him, from their sin. Like me, from mine. And you, if you are believing/trusting upon Jesus and the work he did at the cross.
Hopefully, you are trusting in Jesus, for everything in your life. Please know that I pray for you.
Until next time...
