After posting Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, I realized I should have posted something different.
After all, it was a year ago yesterday, when I had that very extensive surgery done, in London, Ontario, Canada.
If you weren't aware of this, you may want to read last year's LwL entry entitled, Today, Is The Day... Here is a link, if you'd like to check it out: http://www.lifewithlynnie.com/2014/03/today-is-day.html.
Of course, you may also want to read the next day's LwL entry entitled, Waking? Here is a link for that entry: http://www.lifewithlynnie.com/2014/03/waking.html.
In addition, here is another LwL entry that I'm sure you'd want to read entitled, Surprise!!: http://www.lifewithlynnie.com/2014/03/surprise.html.
I must admit, that both my daughter P and I had heard from so very many doctors, that the surgery I was scheduled to have, was so very dangerous. So much so, that many people do not live through it.
It was for this reason, that I made sure that I was ready for my life to end.
Some people commented as I was re-arranging my life, that I wasn't thinking positively, about what God would provide for me. But, this truly wasn't the case.
The truth is, I felt that if I didn't organize things in my life, even though I was trusting in my Lord, my family would have suffered immensely.
After all, if I didn't make sure I was legally set up, there would have been problems. Many problems, for them to deal with, had I died.
Whenever anyone made a comment that they felt I was being negative in my thinking, I would let them know that I was not afraid. God knew the plans He had/has for my life, and it would be up to Him what would happen to me.
Thinking of this, brought to mind Joshua 1:9, "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
No. I wasn't afraid. I set my life up, so that my children would be less stressed having to deal with legal issues.
I was strong and had good courage. Much like we read here, today.
I wasn't dismayed. After all, I know that God is with me. Always.
For this, I praise Him. And, always will.
He was merciful to me.
He provided for me.
In so many ways. Just as you may have read in the past.
The fact is, the way I believe He provided for me the most, was the fact that His plan for my life, was for me to continue living here on earth. And, not yet up in Heaven with Him. For eternity.
Even though I have not had a perfect life, I praise Him for this. And, always will.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
