As you know, if you've been following my life's circumstances here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I recently spent some time in hospital.
Since I wasn't able to write and publish entries on a daily basis, while in hospital, I am not only writing a daily entry once again, but also an entry for each day I wasn't able to do so, previously.
The entry I am posting entitled, Mother's Day Blessings! was published today, but is showing a date of May 16th. Here is a LINK so you can easily access it, to read.
In yesterday's LwL entry, I wrote about how blessed I felt that my daughter P, had insisted and pressured me into allowing her to help me, by driving me to my surgeon/doctor's appointment.
To be honest, I was grateful she did this, because it is rather dangerous for me to be driving at this time. Especially, with a tube coming from my gut, which sits directly behind the steering wheel in my van.
Of course, I am grateful my children showed me love on Mother's Day. But, there is something else I am grateful for.
I am grateful for all the prayer support I've been receiving.
Hearing from friends by mail and/or e-mail, and having telephone conversations with some friends who contacted me regularly, even while I was in hospital, truly blessed me. I felt loved.
Hearing from Facebook (FB) friends was wonderful, also. Especially, from those who let me know they were truly worried and praying for me.
Believe me when I say I expected to hear from some friends, but was shocked to hear from so many. And, to hear from some that they truly love me and pray for me.
Wow! It's amazing how one can feel love even from a written word.
While I cannot list all who contacted me, because I haven't gotten permission from them all, I can say that I am grateful for all the prayer I've received from those friends in countries from all over the world.
Australia, various countries in Africa, India, Pakistan, and many other places are just a few of the locations where friends (and some of their ministry groups, if they have them) have been praying for me. Thank you. May God bless you.
One friend, Thomas Mathunny, who lives in India with his wife Susan (and his elderly mom), has his own FB page. In addition, he has a prayer page Thomas Mathunny Prayer Ministry, plus Prayer Ministry established 6/6/11. He chats with me, almost daily on FB, and he and his family pray for me, regularly. In addition, he's encouraged me to post on his pages. I've done so, for quite a while, now.
Thomas is a great brother in the Lord, who is a blessing to many and not just me. For sure, he's blessed by God, for all the work he does for Him.
And, I'm grateful for other friends, who pray for me, and chat with me, regularly.
There's Dave Roberts, of Partaker's Wow Ministry. He's an Australian fellow, who lives currently in England. He has his online site; here's a LINK for you to check out. On one of his FB ministry pages, I am an administrator; I make postings, daily.
Knowing that he's scheduled to visit USA and possibly Canada (hopefully with his wife), this fall, I'm looking forward to meeting him/them.
Then, there's a supportive brother in the Lord, who is also a fellow blogger. Alvin Rauh lives in USA, and writes Views of My Life, a blog that I have listed on LwL's blog reading list; click on this LINK to be blessed by reading.
He's been a real blessing to me, in many ways, especially being supportive on FB concerning many controversial issues. For this, I am truly thankful.
There's no way I could possibly list each and every person who have been so supportive of me, praying for my recovery. You know who you are. May God bless each and every one of you!
Just so you know, I pray for each and every one of my friends and relatives. I pray for them, their families, their ministries (if they have them) and for all the efforts they make for God.
I appreciate their Christian love and I praise God for them. After all, God did tell us to love others.
Many Bible verses tell us this, but one in particular came to mind. 1 John 4:7, "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God."
How grateful I am for the love given to me by brothers and sisters in the Lord. How grateful I am for love shown me by friends and family.
The love I am most grateful for, is the love that Jesus had for me. And, for all who would believe upon Him. Love so generous and loving that He gave His life for us, to save us from an eternity in hell.
A love that can never be duplicated.
After all, we are all born dead. We are only made alive, once we come to Christ, believe upon Him, and become saved.
If you are not yet trusting in Jesus for your salvation, please do so, today. We are not guaranteed tomorrow. Now is the time of salvation. Tomorrow, may be too late...
Happy Lord's Day!
Until next time...
