Special!

As I've mentioned here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), Sunday was a very special day.

Not completely due to having missionaries speak, worshipping, and enjoying a celebration of a pot-luck luncheon.  Just like we do usually once a month, after our worship service.

After doing all I needed to do and after seeing my daughter, P for a short time, I did some shopping.  Then, arrived home.

After putting away the things I bought for me, I decided to have a nap.

Boy... was I grateful!  I truly needed some sleep.  I was so very tired, after not having a full night's sleep! 

After waking up, I spent some time on Facebook (FB).  Something rare was there for me to enjoy. 

One of my relatives had a special birthday.  So, some of my Irish family posted photos of their celebration with, R.  I should let you know that I took the time to call R... and wish him... Happy Birthday!

It touched my heart that R celebrated his special birthday.  But, it also touched my heart that his family members who live near him and love him, did everything they could to encourage him.  :)

Praise God!

Later, I received a long-distance call.  At first, I thought it might be my friend from Germany who sometimes calls me more than once per day!

It wasn't.

It was my aunt, N! 

Over many years, I hadn't heard from her.  But, over the past few months, we've spoken several times.

N, wanted to be reminded of when my daughter, B is having her upcoming surgery.  I let her know.

Plus, we spoke about other things.

To me, it has been a blessing to be able to speak with my mom's sister, my aunt, N!  She's my mom's only sibling still alive.  Thank You, Lord!

While talking, I reminded her that I pray for her.  Every day.  And, have done so, for many, many years.

Just like I've done for many other people.

Thinking about this, reminded me of Ephesians 6, 18:  "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;"

Yes, I pray in the spirit.  For all saints.  Meaning, all who are brothers and sisters in the Lord.

Plus, I pray for family.  And, friends.  Whether or not they are yet saved.

The same applies for friends from my past, who are either strangers now, or who have unfriended me.

In addition, I pray for all unbelievers of our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Yes, including Muslims, and other unbelievers.  And, more people, including government officials.

Why?

All need to be saved.

Are you saved?

Have you gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ?

Hopefully, you have.

If not, you'll suffer for eternity, with no chance of ever changing the suffering you'll endure.

If you have, you'll be happy to be with God, in Heaven... for eternity.  Forever!

My friend, the choice is yours.


Until next time...
