Ten...

There is something I want to discuss, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's something I have discussed on many occasions, in the past.  It has to do with what time of year, this is.

Last week, I thanked God for helping me through those last couple of days in August.  And, through the first few days in September.

You see, when my now deceased husband, Gordon was alive, we moved into the apartment where I now live alone.

We were due to move in on September 1, 2006.  Ten (10) years ago.

However, we received the keys a couple of days early.  So, we began moving in.  And, continued doing so, over the Labour Day weekend.

Yes, the Labour Day weekend.  Just like I'm experiencing, now.

As I mentioned previously, I thanked God for helping me through those last few days of August and the first few days of September.  However, on this past Friday, things seemed to change for me.

On Friday evening, I began feeling sad.  What I felt seemed like grief attacking me, again.

Even though I was tired, I didn't sleep through the night.  In fact, I only slept about two and a half (2 1/2) hours.

Saturday morning, I thought maybe I would feel better.  But, I didn't.

In fact, tears began.  And, didn't end.

Those tears kept on throughout Sunday.  Not every minute, but definitely off and on. 

Sunday night, I was truly exhausted.  But again, I didn't sleep well.

After having only about three (3) hours sleep, I got up.  And, felt horrible, once again.  At least, not every moment, but definitely off and on.

The thing that helps me through times like this, doesn't have anything to do with family or friends. 

Family and friends are there for me, from time to time.  However, on special weekends, like Labour Day weekend, they usually have things to do, themselves. 

So, I spend the time... alone. 

Well, not really alone, since our Lord is with me.

He reminds me about how He loves me, provides for me and encourages me.

Thinking of this, reminded me of Psalm 118:24, "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."

Yes, whenever I go through times like this, I am reminded about how this is the day the Lord hath made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it.

By looking to Him, He helps me through those grief-filled times. 

I thought about how God loves me.  And, how He provides for me, always.

I am thankful for today.  And, glad for it.

After all, He loves me.  And, always will.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
