Shocked! But, Thankful!

I'll be letting you know, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) about something shocking that happened to me, on Thursday, March 17th.

I must admit, we've had a much nicer winter, during this El Nino year.

Yes, I realize that my friends and family who live in the south western part of USA, don't agree.  After all, they have had a colder and less nice, winter.  But, we've enjoyed our warmer and less snowy winter that we've had, in my area.

With the temperature being warm, like spring weather, I decided to open my balcony sliding door.

Yes, I've done it before.  Especially, since we've had nice days.

I unlocked the door.  And, went to slide it open.

Instead of that happening, the handle exited the upper and lower parts that are screwed into the door.  :'(

At first, I felt truly shocked. 

I prayed.  Lord, help me!

He did help me. 

Just as we read, in Hebrews 4:16, "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."

By praying, it was like I came boldly unto the throne of grace.  I obtained mercy.  And, grace to help me in my time of need.

For this, I was truly thankful!  Thank You, Lord!

How did He help me?  He let me know what I needed to do, to repair the problem!

And, He let me feel that I could repair the problem, without having to hire someone to do it.

You see, I looked at the upper and lower parts that are screwed into the door, again.  I noticed that the lower part, wasn't in place.  It was slightly turned.

I got out the screwdriver that was needed. 

Then, I placed the handle that goes between the upper and lower screwed in parts, back into place.  And, I tightened the screw on that lower portion that had not been secure.

Thank You, Lord! 

You helped me repair what needed repairing.  Even though I am not a strong, nor talented person who can do repair work.

I'll be forever grateful. 

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
