Fruitful Heritage...

If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, you'll know that in addition to the day being our Lord's Day, it was also Mother's Day.  And, my granddaughter A's birthday!

Since both my daughters have children, each one usually spends Mother's Day with their family.  However, there have been times when I've been included in their celebrations.

Yesterday, I received a phone call from my daughter P.  In addition to both of us wishing each other Happy Mother's Day, P let me know she hadn't been feeling well.

In fact, she had been feeling badly for a couple of days.  And, was in much pain, yesterday.

I must admit, I feel badly for her.  Life's not easy for her, considering she has Lupus.

If you can find it in your heart to pray for healing for P, I would truly be grateful.  Thank you.  May God bless you.

On Facebook (FB), one (1) of my grandsons messaged me.  Yes, he wished me Happy Mother's Day.  And, we chatted for a bit.  :) 

About lunch time, my daughter B arrived to see me.

In addition to her coming to see me to wish me Happy Mother's Day, she brought with her, my granddaughter, A.  It was A's fourth (4th) birthday!  Once again, I wish A Happy Birthday!

We had a nice visit.

I made sure I had prepared lunch ahead of time, so we could enjoy a meal, together.  It seemed everyone enjoyed the food. 

One thing I felt badly about, was the fact that I did not have birthday cake to celebrate A's birthday with.  :( 

As I'm sure you're aware, I'm recovering from major surgery.  Since my abdominal muscles were stretched and used to reconstruct me, I am still in pain.

My pain is much less, thank God!  However, my surgeon confirmed that for a few weeks yet, I will probably still have pain.

This meant that I could not bake a cake, or anything else.  After all, I am not to bend, lift, stretch, carry or do anything that could bring on a situation of me developing a hernia, once again.

Still, I had donuts in the freezer.  So, we enjoyed them together, and sang Happy Birthday to A. 

It seemed that she liked her birthday gift.  And, couldn't wait to play!  :)

To me, family is very important.

In my life, I haven't always had family that was loving towards me.  Not in my younger years.  And, not always, even as an adult.

Still, God provided for me.

It did my heart good to be visited by some of my family.  Meaning, both my daughter and my daughter's daughter... my granddaughter.

After all, God told us that family is important.  Especially, children.

Just as we read in Psalm 127:3, "Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward."

I must admit, that when both my daughters were born, I thanked God for them. 

And, still do.  Even though none of our lives are perfect.

My daughters are far more important to me, than they probably even realize.

My love for my daughters, and indeed for all my family members and friends, exceeds any/all situations in life.  Positive situations, or negative, it doesn't matter.  My love for them will never end.

For this, I praise God.  And, always will!


Until next time...
