Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll tell you about this past weekend.  Our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend!

If you read LwL lately, or if you know me personally, you'll be aware that our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend isn't easy for me. 

Yes, it is a time when we give thanks to God.  However, it is also a time of sorrow for me, as you're aware if you realize that my husband Gordon, died seven (7) years ago, on our Thanksgiving weekend.

Even so, God provided for me. 

Not just this year.  But, also last year, when my great-grandson, E was born on October 9th, 2015.

With E being born, it made this year's Thanksgiving weekend easier for me to deal with.

On Saturday, E's parents had decided to have a special birthday party for E.  Yes, this was a special event, considering that E was only becoming one (1) year old!

They rented a room at a recreation centre, here in Windsor, Ontario.

I must admit, I was surprised at how many people attended E's birthday party.  Almost everyone there were relatives, including cousins for E.

It was truly a nice time.  And, I adored seeing E enjoying the celebration!

Of course, I enjoyed spending time with my daughter and the rest of her family, that's my family!

Even though it was E's 1st birthday party, I felt truly blessed.

Thinking of this, brought to mind Philippians 2:13, "For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure."

Yes, God works in us, both to will and to do of His good pleasure.

I believe this is why He allowed my great-grandson, E to be born on the weekend that was truly heart-breaking for me. 

E, being born was truly a blessing.  And, seeing him is always a blessing to me.

Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
