Issues in Life...

There's something I've mentioned, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), that is still an issue in my life. The balcony repairs, on my apartment building.

Earlier in the spring, for several weeks, scaffolding ran up and down all the units similar to mine, on all 26 floors.  That is literally what they did, and still do.

The workers do not work specifically on one (1) balcony at a time.  No.  Instead, they use a certain tool or tools, and use them on various floors, literally going up and down all day long.

This issue may not seem important to you, but it is to me. 

This means that every single day, I had to have my balcony door shut.  Same with my bedroom window.  And, I was not able to use the air-conditioning system.

Was this only in effect this last spring?  No.  Even though the workers were working previously on other units, the grinding and other work they did, meant that I couldn't have any air into my unit, from any source, either.

Now, we are in year three (3).  And, as of a couple of weeks ago, they are once again working on my balcony, and on all above and below mine, as I previously mentioned.

So, once again... no air can enter my unit.  At least, not during the day.  Even if it is at the hottest temperature of the day!

I'm truly unhappy that this has dragged out, for so long.  After all, I when it is very hot outside, I feel like I'm suffering, even though I am indoors!

Even though it is not easy for me, I must say that compared to other times, when I wasn't healed enough to be able to go and use the pool, or go out to either visit friends, have lunch, or do some shopping, etc., it's been much easier to deal with the problem, lately.  Like today.

Today, I was able to go out and do some errands.  And, some shopping, too.

Upon arriving home, I quickly got things sorted, then changed into my bathing suit, and went to the pool.

Ahhh... what a blessing it was to be able to relax in the pool.

Well, maybe not just relax, considering that I do exercise in the pool, once again.  Even though it is not as extensive as what I did in the past, I'm grateful that I am able to do some of the warm-up exercises.

How grateful I am that God has provided a way for me to deal with this awful balcony repair situation.  And, not be stuck inside my unit, the way I had been, in the past while dealing with health problems!

How grateful I am that He has provided a way for me to even spread knowledge about Him.  Not just to people I am familiar with, but also to those who I may have not yet met, all around the world.

Thinking about this, brought to mind Psalm 105:1, "O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people."

Yes, I give thanks to my Lord.  Always.

I call upon His name.  Always.  In everything I do.

And, I make known His deeds among the people.  Just as we read in today's Bible verse.

He has certainly blessed me, by making me able to write and post entries here on LwL.  One thing I pray for, is that you will be blessed by reading my work for Him, here on LwL.

I realize that possibly not everyone feels that way.  However, as I mentioned previously, many people bless me, and let me know that I bless them, in various ways.

For this, I will always be thankful, for we need to bless each other.  And, encourage each other, too.


Until next time...
