Love...

In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed how I worshipped, on Sunday.  I realized that I haven't really gotten caught up telling you about what I've done over the past few days!

As I mentioned previously, last Saturday, November 9th, was my daughter B's birthday.  However, we didn't get together on her special day.

Knowing she had plans with friends and some other family members, she agreed to meet with me on the Friday evening, for dinner.  Actually, we were supposed to have lunch together, but it didn't work out that way.

So, we went to one of her favourite places to eat.  And, we both had one of the meals she likes best when she eats there, especially on a Friday.  We each enjoyed their halibut coated in a salt 'n vinegar batter.

Never before had I eaten this.  Wow!  Was it good!  It's made with salt 'n vinegar kettle chips.  Something I had never heard of, until that evening.

We finished up with birthday cake that I brought with me.  The rest, she took home with her, so she could share it with whoever she decided to eat with the next day, her birthday.

On Sunday, November 10th, I mentioned that it was my grandson Z's birthday.  His mom, my daughter P, invited me for supper.

We enjoyed a wonderful, homemade Mexican meal, together.  Thank you, P!

Of course, we followed up with a celebration of Z's birthday, including cake! 

It's amazing to me how much he's grown over the past year.  I believe he's going to be very tall!

I must admit, I felt extremely loved this past weekend.  Especially, after being able to celebrate with my family more than once!

Of course, this is what Jesus told us we must do.  Love one another, I mean.

He told us so, in John 13:34, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

How thankful I was to have been able to spend time with my family.  To show them love.  And, to feel loved, in return.

This is something that doesn't happen all the time.

After all, my daughters live busy lives.  And, both have children that keep them working hard at life.

Even so, I felt blessed.  And, not just because we were able to share time together eating birthday cake! 

It does my heart good to be able to show my family members, love. 

Of course, they know I love them, and pray for them.  And, always will.

Just so you know, I pray for you, also.  Each and every day.  May God bless you!


Until next time...
