If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (Lwl), you'll know that I found a photo of something I never knew existed.
The photo showed what my now deceased husband, Gordon had written on a covered bridge, in Pennsylvania, USA.
Where this bridge is located, I have no idea. In my heart, I wish I knew where it is.
If you know where this covered bridge is located, I would appreciate if you took a photo and e-mailed me information. For this, I would thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
If I knew where this covered bridge is located, I would probably drive there. Look at it. And, cry.
By doing this, I would be able to not only see the love Gordon had for me. But, I would also be able to feel the love.
Please don't misunderstand.
I realize Gordon was not perfect. But, neither am I. Nor, you. Or, anyone.
Gordon accepted the fact that he was a sinner, saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
He understood that God loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son, to die for us.
Just as we read, in Romans 5:8, "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Christ died for us. For us, who trust in/believe upon Him.
We, who belong to Him, will spend eternity in Heaven, with Him.
The unfortunate thing in this world, is the fact that there are many people who do not belong to Him. Anyone who fits into this situation are there, because they do not trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Some people do not even believe in God. At all.
It can be shocking when you realize that someone you know doesn't believe God exists. And, loved us so much that He made a plan of redemption become fulfilled, so that we can be saved from spending eternity in Hell, with no chance of escape. Or, receive God's wrath, because we belong to Him.
They will suffer. Unfortunately. Maybe not much, here on earth. But, they will after their final breath happens, here on this earth.
Then, there are other people who consider themselves religious. Yet, they don't believe in Christ.
There are some religious groups, who do not accept and/or recognize that Jesus Christ is God's only begotten Son.
Some, are peaceful. Some, are not.
In my mind, I feel badly for these people. I pray for them, that they will gain salvation.
And, I pray that God will help me, and all who belong to Him, continue to plant those seeds for Christ, that God commanded us to do.
I pray you are like this. I pray you plant seeds for Christ.
If you do, I'll either meet you here on this earth, or in Heaven. And, will praise God... always.
Until next time...
