Thankful Peace...

If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) on Saturday, April 19th, the Saturday of Easter weekend, you'll know that it was a rather melancholy day. 

Only when I thought of my now deceased husband Gordon.  I couldn't stop thinking of him that day, since it was the Saturday of Easter weekend, when we were married.  And, I miss him.

However, God sure provided for me.  In a different way.

In the mid-afternoon, I had a call from my daughter B, who I hadn't seen in a while.  She let me know that she wanted to come visit me. 

B arrived, along with her daughter... my granddaughter, A. 

My heart skipped a beat!  I was so happy, I wanted to cry.  But, I didn't.

Instead, I enjoyed every minute of our visit.  And, praised God, of course! 

I was truly thankful to Him.  And, felt peace in my heart.

Just as we read in Colossians 3:15, "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful."

God knew my sorrow.  He knew my pain.  Both physical, and emotional. 

And, He provided for me.

Not just because He placed it on my daughter's heart and mind, to come visit me with my granddaughter.  But, He did so, on a day when He knew I needed to be encouraged and lifted up.

For this, I'll always be thankful.


Until next time...
