All...

In the past, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I've discussed movies I've watched.

You may be wondering if I sit down and just watch television (TV).  And, relax.

The only answer I can give, is... yes... and, no.

In the past, I often wondered why I did this.  For a while, I didn't really know. 

It didn't matter what day it was.  If I was home, my TV was on.

Well, unless it's first thing in the morning, and I'm reading my Bible.

After that, even now... my TV is turned on.

Do I watch it, and just relax?

Absolutely, not!

I listen and watch a bit, as I am doing other things. 

Like housework.  Like paperwork.  Like accounting.  Like computer work.  Or, like spending time on Facebook (FB).  Like writing LwL entries, even!

Even when I make phone calls, my TV is on.  But, it's silent.

There have been times when I wondered why I do this.

After praying about it for quite a while, I finally came to a conclusion. 

It's because I don't want complete silence.  At least, not for every moment that I'm awake and at home.

Living alone, isn't easy.  Especially, when you've been used to having a loved one, with you in the past.

But, God knows how I feel.  And, He knows my heart's desire to not feel like I'm alone, all the time at home.

Thinking about this, brought to mind, Psalm 38:9, "Lord, all my desire is before thee; and my groaning is not hid from thee."

He knows everything in my heart.  Including my heart's desires. 

And, nothing is hidden from Him.  Not even my groaning. 

With all my heart, I believe that God provides for me.  Each and every day.

And, has given me the desire to listen and watch TV throughout my time alone at home. 

This way, I can think of various things, even if there is no discussion.  And, comment aloud, even if no one in the world can hear me.

I thank You, Lord. 

Thank You for providing for me.  Always.

Even in the smallest ways.


Until next time...
