Love & Prayer Request...

Before I begin today's entry here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I would like to say that if my parents were still alive, today would be a special day. 

Today would have been my mom and dad's wedding anniversary. 

I'm grateful they loved each other, for love is so very important.  Even though they are no longer here on earth, I truly love them.

Now, I will let you know about what I did, yesterday.

I went to worship with my church family.  Just as I normally, do.

Once again, I was happy to pick up my granddaughter, A.

On our way to meet up with our church family, A asked me how come there wasn't as many railroad tracks as there has been in the past.  I let her know we were driving on a different street.

A asked me if we could drive on the other street, so that we could cross many more railroad tracks than we had, just then.  I let her know that we would do that on our way back home.  She smiled!  :)

Why this is important to her, I don't know.

However, she has always enjoyed crossing multiple railroad tracks.  Even in the past.  Yet, she's never been on a train!

On our way home, we did what she was hoping for.  

She laughed as we crossed over the many, many tracks holding trains that were parked there.  She truly enjoyed it!  :)  I think it may be due to the vehicle bouncing, but I'm not sure.

Hopefully, you can tell that I truly love, A.  And, enjoy time with her.

I should let you know that I also saw her much older brother, N... who I also love.  He's 19 years old.

N, had hernia surgery on Thursday, February 18th at the same hospital here in Windsor, where I had some hernia surgery.  He actually had the same surgeon do his surgery that did mine in 2012, and had to cut me open again, repeatedly.

Before N had his surgery, I spoke with his mom, my daughter, B.  At that time, I suggested they try to arrange N's needed hernia surgery at Shouldice, north of Toronto, Ontario.  They didn't.

When I saw N on Sunday, he told me he was nervous and upset, regarding how his surgery was done.  And, how he's still suffering in a way that affected him, before the surgery.

Of course, his hernia was in a different place than mine was.  But, he asked me about it when I saw him. 

From our conversation, I got the impression that he wasn't aware of everything he needed to know.  Maybe I'm wrong.  Only God knows.

In any case, my grandson needs prayer. 

I am asking you to please pray for N, for he truly needs prayer for healing.  Thank you, my friend.  May God bless you.

In fact, I need to ask you to pray for all my family.  Yes, I love them all.  And, much prayer is needed, at this time.  May God bless you for doing this, my friend.

Prayer is so very important.

Just as we read, in Philippians 4:6-7, "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

Yes, we need to let all our requests be made known unto God... even though He truly knows what our needs are. 

By doing this, we are being careful for nothing, for we are trusting Him... for everything.  And, we are being obedient, by doing what He would have us do.

Of course, the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep our hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

As you know, I trust in our Lord, for everything in my life.  And, everything in my family members lives.

I pray you do the same... for yours. 

May God bless you.


Until next time...
