National Day of Mourning - Part 2 - Ending...

I feel badly that I hadn't yet finished posting, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), regarding The National Day of Mourning.

You may want to refresh your mind, about what The Nation Day of Mourning was about.  If so, please click on this link:  http://www.lifewithlynnie.com/2015/05/national-day-of-mourning-part-1.html.

As I mentioned on part 1, I attended the meeting.  But, didn't participate in the walk to the monument where the ceremony took place.

You may be wondering why. 

The truth is, you may or may not have known this about me, but I have been partially disabled, for many years.  Ever since that tractor-trailer driver hit the school bus, I was driving.

In any case, I had been told to go directly to the legion on Wyandotte St. E., in the part of Windsor, known as... Riverside.  So, I made my way there.

Believe it or not, I took a seat at a table, and actually read my Bible, while I waited for the other people to arrive, who were planning to meet at the legion.

What happened there, was shocking to me.  I had been told that there was going to be beverages available for us, sponsored by the City of Windsor.

However, this wasn't the case.  Instead, anyone wanting a beverage had to purchase it. 

But, dinner was provided for us... free!

I had no idea this was to happen.  Nor, did many others who attended.

Together, we chatted with each other, while we enjoyed a fabulous meal, of penne (pasta) with a delicious meat sauce, salad, sandwiches and of course, sweet and tasty desserts.

I had never before experienced this.  Nor, had some other people.  I must admit, I never heard of anyone who didn't enjoy the meal. 

Thank you, to whoever it was, who truly provided it for us.  May God bless you!

Yes, we enjoyed time and that delicious meal, together.  But there was still heartbreak felt by many, over the reason for the meeting that day.

After all, The National Day of Mourning, is meant to remember workers who were injured on the job, and died... and, is meant to support workers who were injured on the job, and lived. 

Many with pain and suffering.  Like me.  And, others.

I must admit, I truly hate focusing upon the pain and suffering I have experienced, since becoming not just what is called... an injured worker, but in truth... a partially-disabled person.

I hate thinking about how many other people have suffered this way.

Thinking about the suffering that many people have experienced by being injured on the job, reminded me of Revelation 21:4, "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."

Life on earth, is not easy.  Especially, if you live the life of someone disabled, or partially-disabled.

But, God is good.

He has provided for us.  Us, meaning those who belong to Him.

He shall wipe away all tears, and there shall be no more death, sorrow, crying, pain or anything else that complicates life, here on earth.  For, the former things are passed away... once our life here on earth ends, and we spend eternity in Heaven with God.

Now, please don't think this will be for everyone.  For, it won't be.

As I said, this is for those who belong to God.

If someone doesn't belong to Him, they will not experience this.  Instead, they will suffer for eternity, in Hell, separated from God... with no chance of changing this.  No chance of escape.

So, what must you do to belong to God? 

All you need to do, is to trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  And, you shall be saved.

Saved from sin.  Saved from being in Hell... f o r e v e r. 

If you haven't yet come to Christ, please think about this.  And, do it, today.  Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...
