Someone...

Off and on, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I've written about how I've been encouraged by friends.  Real life friends, plus cyber-friends (mainly from Facebook (FB), but some met through commenting on LwL).

One FB friend has been so kind towards me.  Postings of encouraging pics and comments from her have been wonderful.  Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

"May God bless and keep you Lynn; know you are in many prayers of numerous people and we love you. God will bring you through this thing. You have definitely set a Christian example. He is with you and will carry you through this storm. Love you much!"

I truly never thought I would ever hear anything so loving.  Especially, since we have never met in person.  I thank you, my friend.  Hopefully, through our many conversations, you realize that I love you, too!  May God bless you...

For some reason, there has been a couple of songs that have resonated in my mind.  One (1) of them is by Ella Fitzgerald entitled, Someone to Watch Over Mehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDhF-PsDuCw  Here's the lyrics:

Someone to Watch Over Me by Barrington Somers Pheloung & George Gershwin

There's a saying old, says that love is blind
Still we're often told, "seek and ye shall find"
So I'm going to seek a certain lad I've had in mind

Looking everywhere, haven't found him yet
He's the big affair I cannot forget
Only man I ever think of with regret

I'd like to add his initial to my monogram
Tell me, where is the shepherd for this lost lamb?

There's a somebody I'm longin' to see
I hope that he, turns out to be
Someone who'll watch over me

I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood
I know I could, always be good
To one who'll watch over me

Although he may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome
To my heart he carries the key

Won't you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me

(bridge)

Won't you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me

Someone to watch over me

Why this is a song on my heart, I cannot figure out.  But, it is.

Of course, reality is in my heart.  Jesus, is the person I have to watch over me. 

He provides for all my needs and helps me, daily.  Just as God told us in Psalm 121:2, "My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth."

There are times when I wonder what I would do without Him in my life.  After all, life isn't easy.  And, it's not kind. 

But, God loves us.  He loves us so much that even before we were born, He provided for us. 

He knows the end from the beginning.  And, He alone, knows the plans He has for us.  Plans to help us, and not harm us... to give us hope and a future.

I praise God for His promises to us!


Until next time...
