Improving, But Still in Need of Prayer...

As you would know if you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL), I have been sick.

Once again, I thank each and every one of you, for praying for me.  May God bless you...

Yesterday, I wrote about how I hadn't eaten since Saturday. 

Well, last night, after I posted that LwL entry, I went to sleep.  And, did exactly what I did as in time past.  I spent some time in bed, then went to my recliner chair.  Then, back to bed.

I had a dream.

In the dream, someone told me I needed to eat some Lipton's Chicken Noodle Soup (LCNS).  Who told me this?  I don't recall.

However, just as I was dreaming that I was making some, I awoke.  So, I recalled the dream.

At first, I thought... well, it's only a dream.

Then, I realized that I hadn't eaten in three (3) days.  And, wondered if it was God telling me I needed to eat.

So, when I felt I had enough strength about lunch time, I made some LCNS.

At first, I didn't think I would be able to enjoy it.  But, I found it to be refreshing.

Yes, it gave me some strength.

I normally wouldn't have made a comment like that, but I feel it was true.  I was able to stay awake longer than I had during all of Monday.

I praised God for this!

My coughing isn't as severe as it was, because whatever is ailing me seems to have left my head (yes, I still have a headache), and has gone to my lungs.  Even so, when I cough I feel like my abdomen will burst open.

Just so you know, I was supposed to see my newest Windsor surgeon, today.  However, being sick, I had to cancel and rebook.

After all, if I was hurting with weak stomach muscles, each and every time I cough, I would hate to see someone recovering from surgery, with possible stitches, hurt like this.  Or worse.

After all, God tell us to care for others.

Just as He told us, in Philippians 2:1-5, "If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.
Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:"

Even though I am feeling slightly improved, I am still glad I rebooked my medical appointment.  I wouldn't have wanted to hurt someone else.

I'm so grateful God loves me.  I'm so grateful God loves you, too.

I'm so grateful that He sent His only begotten Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, to earth, to die on a wooden cross for my sin.  For your sin.  And, for the sin of the world... of all who will believe.

I'm so thankful that He has provided me with supportive friends, who have called me, showing me they care.  Or, who have messaged/e-mailed me.  Or, who have prayed for me, on Facebook... or wherever you are.

Again, I must thank you for prayer.  And, let you know that even though I am improving, I still need continued prayer.  Thank you...

May God bless each and every one of you.


Until next time...
