If you've been reading Life with Lynnie (LwL), you'll know that our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend was busy for me.

Monday, October 10th, was our Canadian Thanksgiving Day.

However, it was also the day of the 7th anniversary of my husband, Gordon's death.

I had prayed about what to do on that day.

I must admit, I truly didn't want to be at home, alone.  I felt that maybe I wouldn't be able to be happy about it being our Thanksgiving Day.

After praying, I arranged to take a fairly 'new' friend, M to the Legion, for dinner.

You see, this lady was going to spend most, or possibly all of the weekend, alone.  So, in my heart, God provided for both of us.

Arriving at the Legion, we both thought that the dinner would be a turkey dinner.  But, it wasn't.

Instead, the dinner was a ham dinner.

To some this wasn't great.  But, to us... it was good.

And, it was absolutely, delicious!

While there, we listened to music.  And, talked.

Something happened that was a total surprise to me.

When I returned from the ladies' washroom, I saw another woman sitting next to, M.  They were talking.

It turned out that the lady sitting and talking with M, was her sister!  :)

A couple of times, M's sister came to speak with her.  Plus, her brother-in-law came and asked her to dance.  Although she didn't dance at that time, M did a bit later.

I didn't dance at all.  Especially, since I am not well physically, and have been experiencing pain.

However, the music man called me up to sing.  So, I did!

He fulfilled not just my heart's desire.  He also fulfilled some other people's desire, for I had been asked by some people to sing that day.

It seemed to me that God not only provided for me, but He also provided for, M.

Thinking about this, made me think of Philippians 4:20, "Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen."

Yes, now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever.  Amen.

Talk about glory!!

He provided for both M and my needs.

Plus, He opened the door for M, even more, regarding her family!

For this, I'll always be thankful.

Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
