In yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, I discussed about how I drove to Guelph, Ontario, to meet with a Facebook (FB) friend from England, and her friends who she had been staying with while in Canada.
As I said previously, I truly enjoyed meeting with C and her Canadian friends, D & G! I'm looking forward to seeing them, again.
After we left Tim Hortons, they headed to Niagara Falls. Just as they had planned to do.
I made my way to where my brother, B lives.
It was nice being able to visit B. And his girlfriend, P who was visiting him that day.
Together, we talked and talked. And, celebrated B's birthday that was happening the following week.
Our tea time was nice, too!
While at B's apartment, it was rather disturbing that he had gotten rid of some of his furniture. Not due to financial reasons.
Because B had both his kidneys removed a few years ago, and has not yet received a kidney transplant, he has to take dialysis, daily.
B doesn't go to the hospital to have this done, as he used to do. He actually has a unit at home, similar to what is used at the hospital.
In order to use the equipment, he has to use liquids and other items to make everything function well.
Where was all this stored? In his livingroom, bedroom and bathroom!
Seeing all those boxes taking up space in his apartment made me realize how disturbing it was for my brother to have to live like this. After all, his living accommodation looked more like a storage unit.
Yes, I had been there in the past. But, never before had I seen this.
I felt badly for my brother.
After all, he needs a kidney.
For, if he is able to have a transplant done, then he may be able to live a more normal life. And, not have to be on dialysis... daily.
Please know that I love and have prayed for my brother.
Just so you know, he has come to know and worship our Lord. For this, I praise God!
After all, God's will is always done. And, His will is His will. Not ours.
Yet, He has told us that we can pray, and whatever we pray for, if it is His will, He will give us the desire of our heart.
Just like we read in various Bible verses. Like, Psalm 37:4, "Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart."
Delighting ourselves in our Lord, is so very important. Just as we read, in today's Bible verse.
I believe He will give us the desire of our hearts. The desire of all... including my brother's, his family and friends, and mine.
Of course, everything is done in His time. Not ours. So, until it happens, we must continue in prayer.
My friend... please join me in prayer for my brother, B. He truly needs all the prayer he can get.
Thank you. May God bless you.
Until next time...
