Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I would like to let you know that today is my grandson Z's birthday. Happy Birthday, Z! I'm looking forward to spending time with you, your mom and family members, later today...
Like normal on our Lord's Days, I went to worship with my church family, yesterday.
While I was able to participate in yesterday's Bible study class, I once again arrived, a few minutes late. :( I apologized for this. :) To be honest, attending slightly late, is better than... never!
Our pastor was on holidays, so he didn't preach. Normally, when he's on vacation time, he and his wife are away.
However, yesterday was very different.
Not just because a brother in the Lord, preached a wonderful sermon, yesterday (thank you, brother J!). But, also because our pastor came to worship with our church family! :)
All in all, yesterday's worship time, was absolutely wonderful!
Arriving home, I once again felt extremely exhausted. So, I laid down for a quick 40-wink nap. Well, okay... it was more like a 20-wink nap, since it was only about 20 minutes!
Even so, it helped give me some energy to keep moving on, throughout the rest of the day.
Knowing that about a week ago, I had installed wreaths on both my now deceased husband Gordon's grave site, and on his parents' grave site, I stopped by, at the cemetary. I wanted to make sure that the stands and the floral arrangements were secured, properly.
I must admit, I was happy they were. :) Even if it is sad to have to place such things, at all. After all, life would be very different, if all my loved ones who are no longer alive, were still breathing, and living, here on the earth. With me.
Thinking about how I managed to get through the whole day, even though I was totally exhausted, made me think about how God takes care of me. Always.
Just as we read, in Luke 12:22-24, "And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?"
Yes, He takes care of me. And, of all who are trusting in/believing upon Him, our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Just as we read in today's Bible verses, Jesus spoke to those who belonged to Him. His disciples.
And, what He said, is truly a blessing to remember, whenever we as people, suffer in various ways in life.
For He knew and explained to His disciples, and to all who read the Bible even in this era, that we, His children... are even better than birds, and more.
Are you trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ?
Hopefully, so. I'd be really happy to meet up with you, in Heaven, some day.
If you have not yet gained salvation, through Jesus Christ, then I would suggest you come to Christ, today. Tomorrow, might be too late.
Until next time...
