Likewise, I'm sure!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I haven't yet told you much about my weekend.  Hmmm... in fact, nothing, at all!

On Saturday, I had some company!

Yay!  Thank You, Lord!  It's always nice to have someone to visit with, especially when you're not well.  And, living by yourself.

My friend Mary-Ann Lehmann had told me she had frozen a dish for me, to have for a supper meal. 

This was such a nice thing for her to do.  Even though it wasn't necessary, I wasn't going to turn it down.  :)

You may recall reading Mary-Ann's name in the past.  She's my mortgage broker friend, who is trustworthy and dedicated to her work.  Here's a link in case you would like to contact her:  http://invis.ca/brokers/Mary-Ann-Lehmann

She let me know that after her husband arrived home from work, she planned to do some shopping.  Then, she would make it across town to visit with me, and bring me the meal she had frozen for me.

When Mary-Ann arrived, I was thankful that I had been wearing my housecoat!

You see, when I am here alone, and sometimes if a female friend is due to arrive, I'll just be in my nightgown.  I truly do not like to be too warm.

However, the Lord put it on my heart to wear one of my lighter-weight housecoats.  Thank You, Lord!

Right behind my friend, was her husband, R.  Wow!  I almost had heart failure!  lol :)

Then, the shocking part happened.

A large grocery bag, filled with goodies, was placed on my counter top.  Inside was the meal M had promised me.  But, there was more!

It turned out that every time she cooked something that week, she had frozen some, for me!

The shock didn't end, there!  Then, she unloaded a bunch of grocery items they thought I might need, like fresh fruit and vegetables.

Be still my heart! 

I was overwhelmed with the feeling of being loved and cared for.  After all, these born-again Christian friends blessed me, beyond belief!  Thank you, both!  May God bless you.

Thinking of what they did for me, reminded me of a Bible verse almost everyone has heard at some point in their life, whether or not they realize it.  Most people say, 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you'.

But, in Luke 6:31, we are told, "And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise."

Same thing.  Just different wording in the King James Version of the Bible.

When I asked my generous friends why they did all this, their reply was that they knew I needed it.  And, they knew I would do it for them, if they were in need. 

No, I'm not perfect, but I felt like a perfect person that Saturday afternoon.  Who wouldn't?  After all, I had just received this loving gesture from my brother and sister in the Lord!

To say I felt blessed, is an understatement.  Again, I thank you, friends.  May God bless you!

Until next time...
