There's something I haven't discussed for quite a while, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). It has to do with worship.
Before I got severely sick and went into hospital in June, I used to always mention about worshipping with my church family. I haven't done that, since about May, this year.
Of course, knowing I couldn't drive for quite a while, I'm sure you realize I didn't go to worship with my church family.
Yesterday, was different. Very different.
No, I didn't go to worship with my church family, at the church building where I normally have gone in the past. Instead, I went somewhere else.
Yes, this is the first time I have gone anywhere to worship, since spring this year!
Knowing I had been surgically cut open six (6) times over the past almost 4 years, another church group had me on their prayer list. At least, until a few months ago.
That was when I was told that their church family was going to have to find somewhere else to worship. You see, their church building is closing up at the end of August. This year.
Where was this?
St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. In downtown Windsor.

Knowing that yesterday was to be the last SONday where anyone could go to worship there, I decided to attend. Even though I haven't felt strong enough to attend worship services, anywhere.
Although I haven't worshipped there on a regular basis, I have done so, occasionally.
Yesterday, there was so very many people there. I was truly happy. Even though it could be considered a sad day.
This made me realize that many people's hearts were with this church group. After all, those who were there, assembled together.
Just as we read, in Hebrews 10:25, "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."
While seated among a large group of people, I realized that the assembly was filled with people who adored worshipping there. Or, for those who didn't really want to see this church group close down.
Exhorting one another, seemed to be exactly what was happening. People were encouraged.
For this, I am thankful.
After all, going through trials in our lives, isn't easy. But, God is good.
He always makes sure that those who belong to Him, can deal with life's issues. Even if it doesn't seem easy.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
