Happy American Thanksgiving!


Hopefully, you've followed Life with Lynnie (LwL) long enough to know that I am Canadian.  And, I live in Canada.

On October 14th, I discussed how we in Canada were celebrating our Thanksgiving.  If you'd like to read about it, please click on this link:  http://www.lifewithlynnie.com/2013/10/happy-canadian-thanksgiving.html.

Today though, is the day when my American friends and family are celebrating Thanksgiving.  So, I would like to wish all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

As I've mentioned in the past, as a child I lived in USA for a few years.  This resulted in me having affinity for the country and all those who live there.

The other evening I had a telephone call from my cousin E, who lives in Lake Havasu City (LHC), Arizona, USA.  During our conversation, she let me know she would be celebrating Thanksgiving with family. 

It did my heart good to hear this.  Especially, since not all her family lives in her city.

I was so-o very happy for her, and for her family.  And, I told her so.  Of course, I praised God!

E said something to me that was rather shocking.  She suggested I move from my residence, and go live in LHC.

Her saying this, threw me for a loop.  E went on to say how grateful she would be, if we could spend more time, together.  Especially, since she loves me.

I let her know that I love her, too!

At first, I couldn't see myself making a long-distance move, like that.  But, after thinking about the idea, I have decided that I need to pray about it.

After all, prayer is very important to those of us, who are God's children!

Just as He told us in Philippians 4:6, "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."

Just as the verse tells us, I have begun to pray about the possibility of moving to be close to my cousin.  Whether or not this will happen, will depend upon how God answers the request in prayer I've been speaking with Him about.

In the meanwhile, I will continue to pray.  And, be thankful for all things in my life.  The good.  The not so good.  And, the terrible.


To all who are celebrating Thanksgiving today, I wish each of you, a very Happy Thanksgiving!  May God bless you!


Until next time...
