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...
