Blessed...

If you read some of last week's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entries, you'll be aware that for a while, my life seemed to be on a roller coaster ride. 

There were days and times when I was treated poorly.  Then, there were other days and times when I was treated wonderfully.

As I wrote about on Saturday, a couple of Facebook (FB) friends, who are fellow bloggers and one even being a travel show host, were kind and/or supportive of me.  This happened last Sunday, and Monday.

Then, on last Monday evening, something else happened.

Just so you know, I try to do some walking exercise outside my apartment, in the hallway of my floor in the building.  Usually, I do some walking twice a day, if I can.  Morning, and evening.

After I did my evening walk, I returned to my apartment, and had a shower.  Shortly afterwards, my telephone rang.

The caller was one of my building's security people, L.  She wanted to come see me for a few minutes.  So, upstairs she came.

When she entered my apartment, I was absolutely floored.  And, almost began to cry.  But, didn't.

In L's arms, was a package of flowers.  They were a gift from her, for me.

She told me that she thought I could use some cheering up.

This shocked me.  After all, she had no idea that I'd experienced both happiness and sadness over the past couple of days, being treated well, and not so well, by people.  Including some I care for.

I must admit, I felt truly blessed receiving L's gift, and hug that came with it.

Thinking about being blessed, brought to mind Psalm 1:1, "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful."

Just like I wrote about the hymn At The Cross, yesterday, I feel blessed.  And, am happy.  Happy, due to the fact, of what my Lord, Jesus Christ did at the cross.  For me.  And, for all the world, of all who will believe.

As I've discussed previously, I try to not walk in the counsel of the ungodly.  Nor, do I stand in the way of sinners.  Nor, sit in the seat of the scornful. 

At least, not unless I am forced to.  But truly, not by choice.

Instead, I try to develop relationships with those who are fellow believers. 

Like L.  Who God placed on her heart and mind, to lift me up with encouragement.

Thank you, L.  May God bless you, always.


Until next time...
