Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be telling you about something else I did last week. Yes, like I said in the past, it was a busy week!
On Saturday, December 10th, I met with a friend at a church where her son worships.
The church is Parkwood Gospel Temple, here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Click on this link to check it out, if you like: http://pgt.on.ca/.
My friend, M's son plays trumpet, and is a member of the music group who plays his trumpet during the musical play their church group creates and offers to everyone. So, almost every year I try to attend, by joining my friend.
We sat together. We talked. And, we enjoyed the play that was entitled, Shepherds and Kings... a dramatic musical for CHRISTmas.
Because this year's musical play was shorter than other years, and since they have a coffee area, we went and sat there, talking... once it was finished.
We didn't just talk with each other.
Both my friend, M and I spoke with people we knew who had attended. It was truly nice to see them!
We also sat and spoke with M's son, and his wife. Plus, their son (my friend M's grandson) and daughter-in-law!
What a wonderful time this was! It truly touched my heart.
Not just because we saw and spoke with people we knew. But, also because we were able to be with fellow Christians, and enjoy our time, together.
Thinking of this, made me think of Proverbs 17:22, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones."
Being there, did not create a broken spirit. For this, I am truly thankful.
Being there, created a merry heart. This made me feel so good, like medicine would!
And, it made me feel so wonderful that there are so many people looking to honour our Lord, to celebrate His birth.
So, we all wished each other... Merry CHRISTmas!
Just as I will do with you, today.
Merry CHRISTmas, dear friend!
I pray you will look to our Lord, love Him, and celebrate His birth... even though no one truly knows what date it was when He was born.
May God bless you, for honouring Him.
Until next time...
