In The Midst...

If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that I went to worship with my church family.

However, before I went to do this, I did something else.

I made my way to the cemetery where my deceased husband Gordon, is buried.  Knowing that I had only been there once in the last few months, I brought some flowers with me.

This may have sounded like an easy thing to do.  And normally, it would be.  If I were stronger physically, that is.

I carried the flowers and a plastic container with some water in it.  I knew it wouldn't be enough water to fill the vase where I would place the flowers, so I laid them on the ground, along with the plastic container.

Believe it or not, I found it hard to bend down to lift the vase out from where it is stored.  It was heavy!

Yes, I know... they are heavy.  However, for me I normally can do this, without too much trouble.  But, not yesterday.

This was a very difficult thing for me to do physically, and was the first time I had attempted to do this, since my major surgery.  As I struggled to do this, I silently prayed.

God helped me. 

I managed to get the vase out, and carried it to where there was a water faucet, nearby.  I filled it with water, and made my way back to Gordon's grave.

After pouring some of the water into the plastic container that had a little bit of water already in it, I locked the vase into place on Gordon's grave.  Then, I placed the flowers in it.

I made my way to his parents' nearby grave and did the same for them.  Only this time, I didn't carry their vase to get water.  I used the water from the plastic container I had brought with me.

Afterwards, I returned to Gordon's grave for a few minutes.  There, I prayed.

Off I went, to join my church family.  And, my Lord.

Just as we read, Matthew 18:20, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

Yes, our Lord is with us, when we gather together.  For this I praise Him!

It was wonderful being able to worship Him, giving honour and glory.

Hopefully, this will be something I will be able to continue doing.  It is my prayer that I won't need any further surgery, or medical care.

Of course, I have no idea what the future will bring, for it is God's will that is done.  Not mine.

So, I am praying that it is His will to provide me with total healing. 

If you can find it in your heart to continue praying for total, restorative healing for me, I would truly appreciate it.  Thank you, my friend.  May God bless you.


Until next time...
