Today, I want to say something else here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), that touches my heart.
I want to wish my grandson, S Happy Birthday! S, I'm looking forward to seeing you, later today! Love, Grandma. xoxo
After spending time together with S, and our family, I believe I will go and spend time in the evening with a church group I recently heard about. Apparently, the group is new to my city, and meets at a hotel.
A Facebook (FB) friend invited me to attend their church event for New Year's Eve!
After hearing about the event, I also told my friend, C about it. Hopefully, she'll be joining me, there.
C and I spent some time together this past Monday. We did something we haven't done in a while.
After meeting up, C drove us to Detroit, Michigan, USA!
Once we crossed the border through the tunnel, we made our way to the post office, on Fort St. You see, there was no point in me mailing something from Canada, to a friend in USA, since we were going there for a couple hours.
Then, we made our way to a Mexican restaurant that I enjoy!
While there, we talked and enjoyed every bite of food we could eat. Then, took our leftovers home with us!
I have to thank C for doing this with me. Plus, I thank her for our meal and the gifts I received from her, for Christmas, and for my birthday!
Yes, it had been a while since we spent time having fun, together!
I must admit, I truly feel loved. And, blessed.
Thinking about being loved by my friend C, reminded me of Proverbs 17:17, "A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity."
Some people might think it strange for me to think of this Bible verse. But, it truly came to my mind.
After all, C is definitely a friend of mine. A friend who is Christian, and who loves me.
Yes, the verse tells us that a brother is born for adversity.
Think of it, this way... my friend C, who is Christian, has chosen to love me. She didn't need to. But, she did, and does, always. Just as God expects of her.
Just as I love her.
Yes, I love my brother. And, others probably do, also.
But, think of this verse in this way... when we have a brother (and/or sister), they are not yet always brothers or sisters... in Christ. Sometimes, they are just a sibling. At least, through part of their life.
Not all siblings love our Lord, and have gained salvation. Hopefully, at some point, they will!
However, with a situation where they may have not yet gained salvation, adversity could and probably is an issue that is dealt with throughout part of their lives.
How grateful I am that God has shown us and told us, what to expect in life.
Thank You, Lord!
I truly feel blessed.
By the way, I want to wish you Happy New Year, my friend!
May God bless you!
Until next time...
