In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed what I did Wednesday morning.
To be honest, Wednesday was a rather busy day.
It was also happy, yet sad. Frustrating, yet enjoyable.
After our real estate board meeting ended, I made my way home.
Both my daughters were to arrive to pick up some things that I decided I should give to them. But, as it turned out, they weren't able to make it.
While this was sad to me, I ended up enjoying resting a while by having a 40-wink nap. Well, since it was short, I should probably say it was a 20-wink nap! lol :)
By 4:30 p.m., I attended another meeting.
This one was for the Injured Workers Coalition group. Just as always, we meet on the third (3rd) Wednesday of the month.
I won't give details. But, I can honestly say that I found the meeting rather frustrating.
Upsetting to the point, that when I left there, I almost felt like I should not again attend. Even though I've been a member there, for many, many years.
While driving home, I cried out to God. And, prayed.
By the time I arrived home, I felt peace within me.
This brought to mind, Romans 5:1-5, "Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."
Yes, being justified by faith, we have peace with God, through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Through this, we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
Of course, like we read in today's Bible verses, we also glory in tribulations/troubles that worketh patience, experience and hope that doesn't make us ashamed.
Even though the day had been rather stressful, yet relaxing, I knew in my heart that the peace that I felt could only come from God!
His love is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost. Or, as we call Him today, the Holy Spirit. Who our Lord, Jesus Christ sent to us, after he gave himself for us, by suffering here on earth, and dying for the sin of the world... of all who will believe.
I must admit, I felt great!
And, even greater later. You see, my now deceased husband Gordon's friend W, who is known as B dropped by to see me.
This was another surprise to me, because I didn't know B would come to visit. After all, he lives in St. Thomas, and not here in Windsor.
Our visit was short, but lovely. And, a blessing to me.
He brought me some books to read, and I responded by giving B some books, to take with him., as he left for home.
Thank You, Lord.
For providing for me, in so very many ways. I'm truly blessed.
Until next time...
