After writing recently in Life with Lynnie (LwL) about being encouraged by a Facebook (FB) friend and fellow blogger of Views of My Life, other FB friends began to contact me, letting me know that they were supporting me.
I praised God for this! After all, the roller coaster feeling about my life and the problem of needing surgery, as soon as possible, by a surgeon specially trained and available to help me, has been a rather difficult problem to deal with.
Even though I do my best to stay positive. As I've said before, I have my moments where I feel rather low in spirit. Especially, since my surgeon/doctor has not yet found a qualified surgeon that can see me, soon.
It may sound like I'm carrying on like an unsaved person, but I must say that living alone, and rarely having anyone visit, isn't easy.
Especially being a widow, the four (4) walls I have been forced to look at 24 hours per day for the past 10 months, hasn't been easy. No one to pray with. No one to hold hands with. No one to look into my eyes and tell me they love me.
I'm grateful that my mortgage broker friend Mary Ann Lehmann, her husband R, and son R, came to visit me, recently.
It made me feel good to think that they weren't afraid of spending time with me. I'm grateful that I am not contagious, so there's nothing to worry about, in that respect. Thank you, my friends. You were the first visitors in a long time. May God bless you.
I am grateful for being able to go online.
More FB friends began lifting me up in prayer. And, providing encouragement in various ways.
One loving sister in the Lord posted a song on Youtube entitled, Meav: The Calling. It's a beautiful song. Here's a LINK so you can listen... and enjoy it!
In addition, I'm grateful for real life friends who have phoned me, regularly. Especially since some calls are long distance in nature.
For sure, I'm thankful for my family members who have been helpful to me, especially when I couldn't drive.
There's definitely someone I cannot leave out.
I am thankful for my Lord. Without Him in my life, I couldn't make it through life's struggles. Especially, this current trial.
As I'm sure you're aware, life hasn't been easy for me. Even though I have my times when I need encouragement, I do my best to focus on Jesus.
And, give thanks, just as God told us to in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
Even though I am experiencing the worst trial of my life, I know that God is with me. He's always provided for me in the past, and I am trusting for Him to provide for me, now.
Thank You, Lord! I know I couldn't get through this life, without You!
Until next time...
