If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) on SONday, I'm sure you're aware it was a rather happy, yet sad day for me.
I must admit, during the month of July, I don't just think about Gordon.
I also miss my brother, Glenn... who died on July 1st.
And, my cousin Audrey, who died on July 24th, that I believe had a closer relationship with me than other relatives think.
As I've said in the past, life isn't easy. And, it's not kind.
Definitely, for me. And, probably you, also.
Even though I think about and feel love for Gordon, Glenn and Audrey, it isn't easy losing those you care for.
There are times when I feel low in spirit, thinking about my loss.
However, after I accept the fact that I feel somewhat negative, God lifts me up.
I speak to my Lord, and let Him know how I feel. Then, I remind myself that I need to look to Him, for everything in my life.
I praise Him, for hearing me, when I've spoken to Him. Not just aloud, but sometimes... silently, through my mind.
What a blessing He is.
This brought to mind Psalm 28:6, "Blessed be the Lord, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications."
He hears the voice of my supplications. He hears what I say. And, He knows how I feel.
Then, He lifts me up, and encourages me.
For this, I will always be thankful.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
