Christmas in July! & Thoughts...

If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that yesterday was a hard day for me.  It was my deceased husband Gordon's birthday.

Was this the only day I felt sad?  No.

Last Monday, I did something I hadn't done in a while.  I went to the senior dinner, at the Legion on Howard Ave., here in Windsor, ON.

The table I sat at was almost full.  Friends, and family members of theirs sat with me.

I must admit, it was a fun time!

Had I realized it was a special dinner celebrating Christmas in July, I would have worn red or greed coloured clothing.  But, I didn't.

Even so, we had a wonderful time!

Like normal, the music was wonderful.  And, I enjoyed some line-dancing.

Santa showed up!

On every table, we received candy canes.  And together, we all enjoyed a delicious Christmas turkey dinner, with all the trimmings normally done on that special occasion!

Our music fellow had many people sing.  Including me.

When he called me up, I had no idea he wasn't going to do this.  Nor, did I know what he intended for me to sing. 

Still, I sang what he chose.  And, enjoyed it!

Like I mentioned yesterday, being not a member of a couple, I did have moments when I felt lonely.  Even though there was about 120 people in attendance.

After all, couples filled the dance floor.  And, I mainly sat with a friend who was like me.  Alone, without a spouse.

Something I never mentioned yesterday, was the fact that even though I miss my deceased husband Gordon, there are times when I wish God would provide someone for me to love and be loved by.

There are times, when I feel that the sorrow I feel missing Gordon, may decrease and possibly even dissolve itself, if I once again, had a loving relationship.  Would it heal me?  I don't know.

This hasn't happened.  So, it is obviously has not been part of God's plan for my life, thus far.

Will it ever happen?  I don't know.  Only God does.

Thinking of how God has His plan for my life, made me think of Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

Yes, He knows the plans He has for us, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give us an expected end.  Hope and a future.

For this, I am truly grateful. 

After all, He helps me through each and every day.  And, He always will, until He takes me home.

For this, I am truly thankful.  And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
