Love... & Congratulations!

Hopefully, you've read Life with Lynnie (LwL) in the past and realize that I am a widow.

This month, February, has been a tough month for me.  Being love month, it is never easy for those who do not have a soul mate in their lives.  At least, not for me.

God has helped me, though.  Just as He does, always.  For this, I am thankful.

On Facebook (FB), I've been approached by many men.  I've mentioned in the past that for a time, I felt bombarded.  In an effort to have this stop, I removed my status as a widow. 

Doing this, seemed to cut down on the number of men, approaching me.  But, it didn't end it.  In fact, this month alone, has been a time where I've been approached by several men.

The biggest problem I have seen, with regards to being approached by men on FB, is the fact that they are not all on the level.  Some are scammers.  Men looking to take advantage of women.

How do I know this?  Because, I've met a few.  Okay, only online.  But, the truth has come out.

Am I open to a new relationship?  Yes, I am. 

I realize that my husband, Gordon has died.  He's gone.  And, he'll never be back.

For a very long time, I couldn't even think about having another relationship, but God has helped me to see that I need to try and move forward with my life.  Especially, if I do not want to live the rest of my life, alone.

Besides, everyone wants to be loved.  I've never met anyone, who truly didn't want to be loved. 

Men want to be loved by their women.  And, women want to be loved by their men.

Speaking about love, a relative of mine, just recently remarried.  Congratulations to you, E & E!  May God bless you both, and be the third (3rd) person in your marriage.

A friend recently sent me this video.  It's from Kerry Shook Ministries.  Kerry speaks with regards to being 'Gourmet'.  Yes, he's doing a little bit of cooking, but what he says about understanding women, is very good.  At least, in my opinion!  Enjoy:

While the video was made for married couples, the fact remains that even single people need to understand how to love someone, so that their lives can be the best it can be, with a future spouse.

Thinking about being loved as a woman, I was reminded of Ephesians 5:25, "Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;"

The greatest love of all, was shown to us by Jesus Christ.  Nothing anyone could ever say or do, could be greater than the love Jesus showed us.

I know He loves me.  And, always will.  For this I am thankful.

Of course, I am thankful for the promise that He gave us, that for believers, for those who are trusting in Him, to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. 

One day, I'll be with Him.  In heaven.  Hopefully, I'll see you, there.

Until next time...
