Provided!

If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, you'll be aware that I felt blessed.

It was wonderful being able to go worship with my church family. 

Plus, it was truly a blessing being helped and being treated lovingly by my sisters in the Lord!  Thank you, so much!

I should let you know that several people commented to me about how I have lost weight.  Yes, I have.  :)

It was shocking to me, when a couple of people told me I look really nice.  Including my pastor.  :)

Please don't think I have lost weight because of not being well.  That's not the case.

In fact, had I been able to exercise in the pool, or done more physically, I probably would have lost even more weight than I have.

The fact is, I have done everything I can to reduce my weight.  And, God has helped me!  Thank You!

After our worship service, we all shared a pot-luck lunch, together.

To me, this was really great!  Even though I didn't eat as much as I have done in the past.  :(  :)

It gave me time to sit and talk with some sisters in the Lord.  People that I hadn't seen in a few months.

For this, I was also thankful.

Wow!  What a day!

It seemed that everything that happened, was truly a blessing to me.  And, I was thankful.

I truly felt like I received gifts.  Like I mentioned yesterday, here on LwL.

Thinking about gifts, brought to mind, James 1:17, "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."

Hopefully, you understand that I felt like I had received good gifts.  And, had received them from my brothers and sisters in the Lord!

This made me realize that just like we read in today's Bible verse, every good gift and ever perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

All I can say, is... thank You, Lord!

Thank You, for providing for me, in so many ways. 

Thank You, for helping me to improve my body weight.

Thank You, for showing me that there are actually people who care for/about me.

Thank You, for Your Word, the Bible... that shows me and others, that all these good things/gifts come ultimately from you.  For you provided the love and caring feelings that my church family felt for me.  And, showed me.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
