In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I mentioned about how my friends M and D not only joined me for dinner, but also blessed me with fresh fruits and vegetables so assist me with other meals, and snacks.

And, I discussed how blessed I felt.  Because, I truly felt blessed.

By me telling you this, I realized that there was something I hadn't yet told you.  Something that happened on February 8th, the Saturday after I returned home from having been opened up once again, at the hospital at the beginning of this month.

My friend M visited me. 

I appreciated her coming to see me, to be sure.  But, she didn't come empty-handed.

With her, she brought a few prepared meals so I wouldn't have to do anything other than reheat food, in order to enjoy a meal.  For this, I was thankful.  Absolutely thankful, beyond belief!

After all, I had surgery only days earlier, and was not stitched up.  It would have been difficult for me to have cooked anything.

She also brought fresh foods.  Foods that made it simple for me to create a tasty salad.

At the time when she did this, I was truly thankful.  And now, I apologize for not letting others know how blessed I felt.

After all, at that time, I felt burdened.   Burdened with health problems, shock, and more.  And, truly needed help from others.

My friend did what God told us to do in Galatians 6:2, "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ."

Yes, my friend and her family took on my burdens.  By doing so, they made me feel not just blessed, but loved.

In the past, we had helped each other.  Especially, since both M and I had experienced surgeries.

And, here she was, once again. 

At my home.  Visiting me.  Encouraging me.  Lifting me up in prayer.  And, providing for me, in my time of need.

Of course, I appreciated what she did for me.  Thank you, M (and your family, too)!

I praise God for her!  And, believe that she will be blessed for being obedient to God's calling. 

If you've been praying for healing for me, I thank you.  May God bless you, my friend.

Until next time...
