Before I begin today's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I'd like to wish my grandson N, a very Happy Birthday! If you were still here in town, I'd be so happy to see you, and celebrate your birthday. However, that's not possible. Even so, just know that I'm praying for you and wishing you again, Happy Birthday! I love you! xoxo
If you read yesterday's LwL entry, you'll know that I mentioned about how a mom was arrested. All because her son left the place they lived, and was found outside, and undressed.
She may or may not deserve being charged by the police. Truly, at this time... only God knows.
However, thinking about this made me recall something terrible happening to a woman I met, years ago. Just after I began living here, in Windsor.
R had also lived in Brampton for a while, before she returned to Windsor, where she was originally from. Unlike me, R lived in Brampton, in a different way.
She had lived in prison.
When R first told me about how she had been arrested, I felt badly for her. Especially, since she had been charged after her infant daughter had died. Died, in her crib. At home.
As a result, her other daughter lived with relatives. Not with her mom.
R's life with filled with suffering.
Especially, after it was found out that a doctor who had made sure many mom's had been arrested and convicted of not taking proper care of their children, had made a mistake. Or, had lied.
Only God knows for sure.
No matter what the case, the truth is that in that era, there had been many moms, who had experienced Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). And, paid consequences, even though they did not do anything to deserve it.
Here's a link so you can read about SIDS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudden_infant_death_syndrome
Can you imagine, how some of those moms suffered?
Can you imagine, having your infant lose their life. And, then paying the price, even though it was undeserved?
Talk about suffering...
I must say that I thank God for being there for every person on this earth.
I thank Him, for letting us know that the sufferings we sometimes experience here on earth, are horrible. And, very different than what shall happen, once we go to Heaven, with Him.
Thinking of this, reminded me, of Romans 8:18, "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."
Yes, we may suffer here on earth.
Maybe not like some moms do or have done. But, in many ways.
The wonderful thing is, that none of the sufferings of this world, are worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us.
Glory? Revealed? In us?
How does this happen?
It will only happen, if we have come to Christ. And, gained salvation, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.
So, if you have not yet come to Christ to gain salvation, I would suggest you do so.
Don't wait. It may be too late.
Until next time...
