Twice... and Twice!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be letting you know about something I did, on Wednesday, September 13th.

It's not something I've done in a while.  Plus, it's only something that can happen once a month.

I attended a Legion in Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada, for what is called a seniors' dinner.

The legion is not far from where I live.  It only takes me about 10 minutes to drive there, even though it is not located in the city where I live.

You need to know that legion is not the only legion who offers seniors' dinners.  It seems that all do, no matter where their locations are.  It may not be so, in other areas, but it is in the area where I live.

Please know that legions support veterans.

Please know that you do not need to be a veteran, in order to attend. 

Nor, do you have to be a senior.  As long as you're an adult, who attends without bringing children, then you are welcome to attend.

Just as I did!

People I know, who attended, were happy to see me.  And, I was happy to see them!

We all enjoyed the dinner we paid for.  Plus, we all enjoyed the music, as well.

Of course, I enjoyed the fact that I was asked to dance... twice!  Plus, I did some line-dancing, for fun!

It seemed that many people enjoyed the fact that I sang... twice!

Yes, I need to say it was truly a blessing when I attended.

Thinking of that, reminded me of Psalm 1:1, "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful."

Amen!  Blessed are anyone... who walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

Believe me when I let you know that the majority of people I know who attend the seniors' dinners at that legion, in addition to legions in other areas, are Christians.

Okay.  Not everyone is.  But, the majority of people I've seen, are.

For this, I am thankful.

Especially, since attending allows us to support veterans, as well.  Even if we are not alcohol drinkers.

If you've never done this, you may want to see if it is available where you live.

For if you do, you may be able to help support and bless those who did military work for you... and your family.

And, be blessed, as well.


Until next time...

Need To? Yes!

There's something I'd like to tell you about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It's something that happened last SONday!

While I was on my way to worship, I realized that I was running late.  No, it wasn't after when the worship service would begin.  I realized that I just would arrive a few minutes late, while music was being sung.

You see, I was dropping things off to some people, and it had taken more time than I thought would happen.

When I decided I had to head towards where I thought I would attend the worship service, I found myself on a street I hadn't been on in many years.  And, I saw something that I hadn't seen before.  Ever!

What was it?

It was a church building where people worshipped.  And, I had never seen it, before, just as I said previously.

Knowing that I was actually early for the worship service, I decided that I would stay there and worship with those fellow Christians, who are actually my church family.

Here's a link for you to check out Calvary Baptist Church, here in Windsor, Ontario, Canadahttp://calvarybaptistwindsor.com/.

Yes, it's important to worship.

Just as we read in John 4:23, "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him."

Yes, I worship God... in spirit and in truth.  After all, He seeks worshippers to worship Him, just as we read in today's Bible verse.

I worship.

Why?  Because I know that as a child of God, I need to.

Do you worship?

Hopefully, so.

If you do, you'll be blessed.


Until next time...

Mom & More...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I feel I need to say something, regarding my mom.  If she were alive, I would wish her... Happy Birthday

Since my mom is not alive, there's no way I could wish her Happy Birthday!

Of course, it is sad when the life of someone we love, ends. 

Much like you would have noticed if you read yesterday's LwL entry.  After all, many people are grieving the loss of those they love, whose lives were lost.

It's not easy dealing with grief.

However, when we are born again Christians, we realize that we need to rely upon what God will do for us.  And, what will happen at any time in our lives.

Our Lord doesn't hurt us.

He's there to help us.  And, does.  Especially, through grief.

Just as we read in Psalm 147:3, " He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds."

He heals the broken in heart and binds up their wounds.

He's done this for me.  Even though I still miss those I love who are no longer alive.

Has He done this for you?

He will, if you belong to Him.

Do you?

All you need to do is trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Then, you'll gain salvation.  And, become part of His family.

If you haven't yet done this, do it today.

Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...

Mike Pence... re: Flight 93 on 9/11 2001

Today, I'm sharing something with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's an article posted by westernjournalism.com that I hope you will take time to read. 

The article is entitled, Emotional Mike Pence Reveals Why Flight 93 Passengers' Heroism Is Personal For Himhttps://www.westernjournalism.com/emotional-mike-pence-reveals-why-flight-93-passengers-heroism-is-personal-for-him/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=PostSideSharingButtons&utm_content=2017-09-12&utm_campaign=websitesharingbuttons.

Hopefully, you read the whole article. 

In case you didn't, I am sharing some of what was stated:

After learning about the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and on the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, passengers of Flight 93 banded together within minutes and devised a plan to charge the cockpit, likely using the plane’s food cart try to ram into the plane’s cockpit, where the knife-wielding hijackers had barricaded themselves.

“They not only planned, but history records that they prayed,” Pence said. “Together with Lisa Jefferson, a phone operator on the ground below, we’re told they prayed the Lord’s Prayer, and recited those ancient words (from Psalm 23), ‘Though I walk through valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me.’”

Only 29 minutes after the terrorists took over the plane, passenger “Todd Beamer spoke those words that America and the world we never forget, ‘Let’s roll,’” Pence said.

After six minutes of struggle, Flight 93 plummeted to the earth into a farm field outside of Shanksville.

Echoing former President Abraham Lincoln’s famous words at Gettysburg, Pence said, “We cannot hallow this place beyond what the heroes of Flight 93 have already done.”

I also like what Mike Pence said at the end of the article:

“As long as America endures, we will tell their story, and generations of Americans will ever be inspired by the faithful and courageous words and deeds of the heroes of Flight 93,” he said. “May God bless our beloved fallen. May God bless and comfort the families gathered here and all those who suffered loss on this day 16 years ago. And may God continue to bless the United States of America.”

Hopefully, you watched the YouTube video on the article, entitled:  Mike Pence Delivers Moving Speech In Shanksville, PA.  Flight 93. 

Yes, if you hadn't watched it, please... watch it, by clicking on this link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=890&v=YPdZ0p_nlmk.

If you watched the video, you'll know that Mike Pence spoke about what was said in the Bible, even though he didn't quote where the verse was located, and didn't use exactly all that I am quoting, here on today's LwL entry.

I'm referring to John 15:12-13, "This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

Hopefully, you realize that Jesus loved us, and laid down His life for those of us who trust in/believe upon Him, our Lord, Jesus Christ.  By doing this, He paid the price for our sin.

However, Mike Pence let everyone know that on 9/11 in 2001, the 40 passengers on Flight 93 loved others and their country enough to realize that even though their lives were going to end, they could love people, and do what they could to help protect others.  Which, they did.

For this, I am also truly thankful.

Thankful to those 40 people.

But, of course, I am extremely thankful for my Lord, Jesus Christ, for what He did for us, to provide us with everlasting life.

Hopefully, you feel the same. 

If so, you'll be blessed.

Because...

Every now and then, I share something with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). 

While today is our day of worship, we need to worship in spirit and in truth.  Just as we always do when we meet up with church family, to worship.

However, music isn't always Christian.  Even so, much music relates to me in a Christian way, for I think of God while relating to some of the lyrics.

Especially, if I feel that it is something God has done for me.

Like in the past, I awoke to find some music on my heart and resonating within me.

The song was by Heart and is entitled, Crazy On You.  Here is a link for you to listen to and/or sing along: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADAeIokKKNs .  The lyrics are below.

Crazy On You

We may still have time
We might still get by
Every time I think about it I want to cry
With bombs and the devils
And the kids keep coming
Nowhere to breathe easy...no time to be young
But I tell myself that I'm doing alright
There's nothing left to do tonight but go crazy on you

Crazy on you,
Let me go crazy, crazy on you

My love is the evening breeze touching your skin
The gentle sweet singing of leaves in the wind
The whisper that calls, after you in the night
And kisses your ear in the early light
And you don't need to wonder, you're doing fine
My love, the pleasure's mine
Let me go crazy on you

Crazy on you,
Let me go crazy, crazy on you

Wild man's world is crying in pain
What you gonna do when everybody's insane
So afraid of fortune, so afraid of you
What you gonna do?

Crazy on you,
Crazy on you,
Let me go crazy, crazy on you 


I was a willow last night in my dream
I bent down over a clear running stream
I sang you the song that I heard up above
And you keep me alive with your sweet flowing love
Crazy on you,
Let me go crazy, crazy on you

Crazy on you,
Crazy on you,
Let me go crazy, crazy on you

Crazy on you,
Crazy on you,
Let me go crazy, crazy on you

I believe God was speaking to me.

I believe He was letting me know that He knows I love Him.  Just as He loves me, and is going crazy on me, with His love.

Thinking of this, brought to mind, 1 John 4:19, "We love him, because he first loved us."

Yes, I love Him, because He first loved me.

Do you love Him?

Hopefully, you do.  Hopefully, you've gained salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

If you have, we'll spend eternity in Heaven together... and with Him!


Until next time...

To Him? No!

Today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be doing something I've done, before.

I'll tell you about movies!

Here's some movies I watched:

Jagged Edge, starring Glenn Close, Jeff Bridges and other actors.  To check out this American drama/thriller film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jagged_Edge_(film).  Even though this movie was filled with lies, I enjoyed watching it.

The Principal, starring James Belushi, Louis Gossett, Jr. and other actors.  If you'd like to check out this crime thriller action film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Principal. I watched this movie, even though it made me feel sick in my heart, for the sinfulness of some people.

Body Heat, starring William Hurt, Kathleen Turner and Richard Crenna.  Click on this link, if you'd like to check out this American neo-noir erotic thriller film:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_Heat.  This movie was truly sad to me, but I watched it.

Best Seller, starring James Woods, Brian Dennehy and Victoria Tennant.  If you want to check out this crime thriller film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Best_Seller.  I watched this movie, even though it was filled with sinfulness.

Owning Mahoney, starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Minnie Driver and other actors.  Would you like to check out this drama thriller film, regarding gambling addiction?  If so, please click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Owning_Mahowny.  Being based on a Canadian true story, I watched it, even though it didn't make me happy.

As I just mentioned, I wasn't happy watching these thriller movies.

Okay, I enjoyed the actors doing what they did, for they did well in their acting.  However, to me the stories were truly sinful.

I believe we need to not get involved in sin like what was shown in these movies. 

Why?

Because the devil was basically in charge of what was done.

Thinking of this, made me think of Ephesians 4:27, "Neither give place to the devil."

Amen!  We should neither give place to the devil!  Yes, we should neither give place to Satan!

I don't. 

Do you?

Do you know anyone who does?

Anyone who belongs to God, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ and have gained salvation, doesn't usually give place to the devil.  Instead, they want to do all, for God.

Do you belong to Him?

I do.

When your life ends here on earth, if you haven't belonged to Him, you will spend eternity in Hell, separated from God.  With... NO chance of escape.

Is this what you'd want?

Or, instead... if you belong to Him, you'll spend eternity in Heaven, with Him. 

Just as I'll be doing.

Hopefully, I'll see you, there!

Please...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), there's something I feel I need to tell you about.

You may know about it.  Or, you may not.

So, I decided to bring the information to you.

There's an article telling you what I'm referring to.  It's by torontosun.com entitled, Woman screaming 'Allahu Akbar' charged in Toronto store attack:  Sourceshttp://www.torontosun.com/2017/06/06/woman-screaming-allahu-akbar-charged-in-toronto-store-attack-sources?token=700d2a2e8b90a6e104b4ff4901675272&utm_source=addThis&utm_medium=addthis_button_facebook&utm_campaign=Woman+screaming+%27Allahu+Akbar%27+charged+in+Toronto+store+attack%3A+Sources+%7C+Toront#.WTdhPbcR4ac.facebook.

Please, click on the link, and read the entire article.  Well, if you couldn't, it wouldn't be good, so I decided to share the entire article (I copied/pasted):

TORONTO - A Scarborough woman swore allegiance to ISIS in a Scarborough courtroom where she appeared to face allegations that she swung a golf club at hardware store employees while screaming threats and Islamic chants.

Before Tuesday’s proceedings started, Justice of the Peace Alice Napier asked Rehab Dughmosh, 32, to identify herself in court — but the accused woman didn’t initially answer the question.

“ISIS — I pledge to the leader of the believers — Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,” blurted the woman through an interpreter.

Al-Baghdadi is the leader of the Sunni militant jihadist group known as the Islamic State of Iraq (ISIS) and the Levant.

Dughmosh, who wore a black niqab and a forest-green prison sweat suit, agreed to “stay in jail,” rather than have a bail hearing at College Park courts Tuesday.

Dughmosh was remanded in custody and will appear via video at Scarborough Court of Justice on June 21.

Sources told the Toronto Sun that a woman, wearing an ISIS bandana, allegedly entered Cedarbrae Mall in Scarborough Saturday afternoon and then the Canadian Tire store, where she walked to the paint section.

She allegedly ranted “Allahu Akbar” — God (Allah) is greater — before swinging a golf club at employees — at the same time of bloody terrorist attacks in London, sources said.

The woman was restrained by several employees, after she pulled out a large knife from under her clothing, according to police. The knife was pried from her hand and an employee suffered non-life-threatening injuries, said a police release.

Dughmosh is facing seven charges including two counts of assault with a weapon, assault, two counts of possession of a weapon, threaten death or bodily harm, and carrying a concealed weapon.

Wow!

What that Muslim woman did, was a form of terrorism.

I praise God that several employees restrained the Muslim woman, after she pulled out a large knife from under her clothing, according to police.  I praise God the knife was pried from her hand, and an employee suffered only non-life-threatening injuries, said a police release.

Seriously, this isn't something that I never believed would happen.  As I've said in the past, I know that things like this will happen, here in Canada.

Why? 

Because even though every Muslim is not doing things like this, they are taught that they need to do it.  So, eventually... many will do what their god... Satan, wants them to do.

Yes, as I've said in the past, I believe we are definitely in end times.

And, we need to be prepared for the rapture.

Why do I think this?

You'll know and understand, if you read Matthew 24:42, "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come."

Knowing that we do not know what hour your Lord doth come, we need to watch, therefore.  In other words, we need to be prepared.

As I've said in the past,  we need to help any/all unbelievers, to trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, to gain salvation.  For if this happens for them, then they will be raptured, to spend time with Jesus.

Please, pray and do what you can for unbelievers, including Muslims, to gain salvation.

Teach people.  Speak up/out. 

And, help them realize they truly need salvation.

By doing this, they'll be blessed. 

And, so will you.


Until next time...

Turn Away!

There's something I feel I need to mention, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's truly upsetting to me.  But, then... you probably won't be surprised why I feel this way.

A while ago, I saw an article by lifesitenews.com entitled, Ontario passes 'totalitarian' bill allowing gov't to take kids from Christian homeshttps://www.lifesitenews.com/news/breaking-ontario-passes-totalitarian-bill-allowing-govt-to-take-kids-from-c.

If you read the article, you'll know it stated (I copied/pasted):

TORONTO, June 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne Liberals have passed what critics describe as “totalitarian” Bill 89 by a vote of 63 to 23 on the last day before Queen’s Park adjourns for the summer.

Pro-family advocates warn Bill 89 gives the state more power to seize children from families that oppose the LGBTQI and gender ideology agenda, and allows government agencies to effectively ban couples who disagree with that agenda from fostering or adopting children.

Sigh...

Was this the only article that told us about what our Canadian... Ontario provincial government was doing?

No.

Here's another article, by heatst.com entitled, Canada's New Law Lets Government Take Children Away If Parents Don't Accept Their Gender Identityhttps://heatst.com/culture-wars/canadas-new-law-lets-government-take-children-away-if-parents-dont-accept-their-gender-identity/?mod=sm_fb_post.

A Canadian province has passed a law that gives rights to the government to take away children from families that don’t accept their kid’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression”.
 
The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, also know as Bill 89, was passed in Ontario by a vote of 63 to 23, The Christian Times reported.

Sigh...

Talk about being sinful to people!  Christians!

Our Premier of Ontario, Kathleen Wynne, is lesbian.  And, since she has arranged this new law, to remove children from Christian families, for the reasons she quoted, it shows that she wants Christians to be hurt.

It also shows that she doesn't want Christian parents to have their children be taught from God's Word, the Bible, that there are a variety of sinful things that should not be done.

To me, this means that we are in end times.

Why do I think this?

I believe you need to read, 2 Timothy 3:1-5, "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

Amen!  In the last days (end times), perilous times shall come. 

We Christians are experiencing this, here in Canada... in many ways.

What did God tell us to do?

His Word tells us... from such turn away.

Turn away!

Please, pray.

Pray that Christians will prepare for the rapture, since we are in end times.

Pray that many people will gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.  By doing this, they will be taken to be with Jesus Christ, when the rapture happens.

Anyone who isn't raptured, will experience more and more disaster in this world.  And, anyone who isn't raptured, is because they haven't gained salvation, so they'll eventually spend eternity in Hell, separated from God, with no chance of escape... unless they come to Christ and gain salvation.

So please, turn away!


Until next time...

Love vs Hate...

There's something I feel I need to let you know, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's something that makes me feel I need to say, yet I'm nervous that people won't understand.  At least, not at first.

I feel I need to let you know that I do not love my life.

My life hasn't been easy.  Nor, has it been good.

My life has been difficult.  It's been filled with sadness, sorrow, pain and suffering.

So, I must admit that I truly hate my life.

Does this sound like something no one should feel?

Absolutely, not.

It's exactly how we all should feel.

Thinking of how I feel, made me think of John 12:25, "He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal."

Amen!  He that loves his life shall lose it; and he that hates his life in this world shall keep it, unto life eternal.

Hallelujah!

I realized a long time ago, that even though my life has been horrible in many ways, God wanted me to feel this way.  And, I do.

Even so, I look to Him, daily.  And, He is there for me, always.

He's there for me, every day.

He helps me through everything that is affecting my life.

For this, I am thankful.  And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

The World...

There's something I feel I need to say, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). 

To me, it's important.  To some other people, it may not be.  But, it truly is.

I do not love the world.  Or, anything happening in it, in this era.

Do you think this is a crazy thought?

I hope you don't feel this way.  I feel I am speaking truth.

Even though I haven't made a habit of speaking forth, regarding how I feel, I believe it is time for me to speak about it.

After all, I feel the way God wants me to.

Just as we read, in 1 John 2:15, "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him."

Amen!  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in them.

Obviously, I don't have to worry about not relating well to Him.  For, He is truly in me.  So, I do relate well to Him.

Do you feel the same way?

Hopefully, so.

For if you do, God will always be there for you.

All I can say, is thank You, Lord!

In Remembrance of 9/11...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL),
I'll be discussing
something that happened in the past.
 
What is it?
It's what happened back in 2001, on...
9/11.
 
If you want to read about September 11th attacks,
please click on this link:
 
Yes, September 11th, is a special day.
It's a day I'll never forget.
Especially, since I saw two (2) of the Muslims in a store
here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada
just a few days before they participated
in... murdering people on...
9/11.
Do you recognize any of those people?
 
Do you recall what they did?
 
 
 
 
Sigh...
 
I must admit,
I pray that anyone who lost
someone they love
on 9/11,
were either a Christian...
or later, became a Christian.
 
Why?
 
Because,
God provides for all who belong to Him;
those who suffer
and
experience grief.
 
Thinking of this,
made me think of
Matthew 5:4,
"Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted."
 
May God be blessing you,
if you are still mourning.
 
Please, pray.
 
If you do,
God will bless you.
 
 
Until next time...

By and By...

Like I've said before, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), today is a special day.  SONday!

It's the day when our church family meets up.  Together, we worship God.

Of course, we can also worship Him through music.  Just as I've said before.

So, I decided to share with you a hymn.

This hymn is sung by Elvis Presley, and is entitled, By and By.  Here is a link for you to listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyKU-xY-gYY.  The lyrics are below.

By and By

Well children by and by, oh when the morning comes
All the saints of God together they come
We will tell the story how the Lord will come
And we'll understand Him better by and by

Trials dark on every hand and we cannot understand
All the ways God will lead us
To the blessed promised land
He will guide us with his eye
And we'll follow till we die
And we'll understand him better by and by

Well children by and by, oh when the morning comes
All the saints of God together they come
We will tell the story how the Lord will come
And we'll understand Him better by and by

Temptation's hidden snares often take the sun away
And our hearts are made to bleed
For some thoughtless word or deed
And we wonder why the test when we try to do our best
But we'll understand it better by and by

By and by when the morning comes
All the saints of God together they come
We will tell the story how the Lord will come
And we'll understand Him better by and by

And we'll understand Him better by and by


Amen...

Time goes by and by.

And, just as the lyrics say, we'll understand Him better, by and by.

Thinking of this, made me think of Psalm 119:100, " I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts."

Yes, I do understand more than the ancients, because I keep Thy precepts.

Am I perfect?

No.

God told us that no one is perfect here on earth.  Only our Lord, Jesus Christ was perfect, and is still perfect.

However, I understand more than the ancient people, because in this day and age, we have the entire Bible.  Unlike many years ago, when people didn't have a copy of a Bible, to read.

It's so important to read the Bible.  For when we read God's Word, the Bible, we learn about precepts. 

We learn about truth that God teaches us, and we learn about what He would have us do.

I read God's Word, the Bible.

Do you?

If not, please begin today.

If you've never before read the Bible, begin reading in the New Testament, in the Book of John.  Read it all, until the end.  Then later, you can read the entire Bible.

By doing this, you'll be educated.  And, blessed.


Until next time...

Enjoyed!

Today, is a day when I'll be sharing things with you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). 

What is it I'll be sharing?

Movies!

Here's some movies I watched:

The Road to Hong Kong, starring Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Joan Collins.  To check out this British comedy film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Road_to_Hong_Kong.  If you get a chance to see this movie, please... watch it!

The Mouse on the Moon, starring Margaret Rutherford, Bernard Cribbins and Terry-Thomas.  To check out this British comedy film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mouse_on_the_Moon.  Even though I don't always find stories like this funny, I enjoyed this movie.

Club Paradise, starring Robin Williams, Peter O'Toole and many other actors.  Please, click on this link to check out this American comedy filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Club_Paradise.  Even though this movie was nice, I was happy to see it, since it involved an injured worker.  :)

Deal of the Century, starring Chevy Chase, Sigourney Weaver and Gregory Hines.  Click on this link, if you'd like to check out this American comedy filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deal_of_the_Century.  Even though this movie contained some sinful things, I enjoyed watching it.

Pocketful of Miracles, starring Glenn Ford, Bette Davis and other actors.  Would you like to check out this American comedy film?  If so, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocketful_of_Miracles.  To be honest, I found this movie to be excellent!

 In the past, I haven't always enjoyed comedy films.  After all, even though they are meant to be comedy, they aren't always funny.

Still, I must say that I enjoyed these films.  For this, I'm thankful!

Especially, since a movie was about an injured worker, and another I found to be truly excellent, in addition to liking the rest.

Of course, in movies, sometimes things in the story fully change.

Just as they do sometimes in life.

Thinking about how God changes things, made me think of Psalm 107:35, "He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings."

Amen!  He changes things.  Sometimes in life. 

For He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and a dry ground into watersprings.

So, sometimes good things become bad.  But, sometimes bad things become good.

To me, this means that we must always trust God.

For He is in control.  He's in control of everything!

If you don't believe me, please... read God's Word, the Bible.

If you do, you'll find out the truth. 

And, you'll feel blessed.


Until next time...

Important Prayer Request...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing something relating to June 1st.

Yes, even though it will be the last time I mention it this week, I felt I needed to discuss it.  Especially, since Labour Day, when workers are supported, was a few days ago.

It's regarding Workplace Safety and Insurace Board (WSIB).

Please, pray for all who work there.

After all, that organization is NOT truly and completely helping injured workers.  In fact, it seems they are doing all they can, to help employers benefit by reducing their help to injured workers.

Sigh...

Talk about being sinful.

I should let you know that years ago, I spoke with a woman who said she was Christian.  Then, after much conversation, she let me know she worked for WSIB.

Sigh...

At first, I thought I shouldn't mention anything about how bad I thought it was that she worked at WSIB.  But, eventually, I did.

She never spoke to me.  Not ever again.

I must admit, I found this truly hurtful.  After all, I wonder how anyone who claims to be Christian could do any kind of work to hurt others.... in any way!

Thinking of this, made me think of 1 John 1:6, "If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:"

Amen!  If we say we have fellowship with Him... and walk in darkness, we lie... and do not the truth.

So, how can anyone who claims to be Christian want to work anywhere where people are hurt?  Are they really being truthful about being Christian?  Not according to today's Bible verse.

Please know that I pray that some day, WSIB will do what they need to do, to support injured workers in a better way, instead of making it worse and worse for injured workers.

Please join me in prayer.

Pray for injured workers.

Pray that WSIB will stop hurting injured workers, in some ways.

Pray that WSIB will help injured workers more than they have.

Pray that anyone/everyone who works for WSIB will truly become Christian and will gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ... and either convince WSIB to help injured workers, or will stop working for WSIB.

Why Do I feel this way?

I don't believe that anyone who truly belongs to God, would want to work anywhere hurting others.  To me, this is extremely sinful.

Thank you for praying.

May God bless you.

Glenn & CTV News Video!

Once again, I'll be discussing something here on Life with Lynnie (LwL). 

Before I do, I want to say that I feel badly that I can't wish my brother, Glenn... Happy Birthday!  If he were still alive, I would.  But, he's not, so I can't.  Even so, I love him... and always will.

I'll be discussing more about what happened on June 1st, Injured Workers Day!

Why?

Well, there's something else I need to tell you about.

CTV recorded what was done outside the building of Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) and later at Fogular Furlan, where the dinner meeting was held to honour Rolly Marentette

Then CTV showed it on the television station news.  Please click on this link, so you can see what was shown on the news broadcast:  http://windsor.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1137921.

I pray you took the time to see the video from CTV news. 

If you did, I know that you saw injured workers, and those who supported injured workers, in front of the WSIB building on June 1st. 

You'll have also seen many injured workers wearing those wonderful T-shirts that were given to us to support Ontario Network of Injured Workers Groups (ONIWG).  Plus, you'll see some signs that were shown to drivers and/or pedestrians.

Yes, you'll see a small amount of what was said/spoken, at Fogular Furlan, during the dinner meeting to honour Rolly Marentette.  It's a blessing, since it truly was in remembrance of Rolly.

For this, I am thankful. 

Thinking about being thankful, made me think about Psalm 107:1, "O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever."

Amen!  We need to give thanks to the Lord, for He is good: for His mercy endureth forever.

Yes, I'm thankful to Him.  For everything.

Including because His mercy endureth forever.

Thank You, Lord!  We all need your mercy.

I'm also thankful to those who participated on Injured Workers Day, June 1st. 

Please join me in being thankful in other ways as well.

Be thankful to CTV.

Be thankful to all who provided in many ways for injured workers and for those who are in support of injured workers and Rolly Marentette, who will always been remembered.

Be thankful to Unifor, the union group who has provided our Windsor injured workers group to meet with a few of their union workers, at one of their buildings in Windsor.

Thank you.

I also thank God.

And, always will.

Thank You, Lord!

Remembrance...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be letting you know more about something that happened in the past.

Yes, it's regarding what happened on June 1st, Injured Workers Day!

Why am I discussing this now?  Well, a couple of days ago, it was Labour Day!

Labour Day, supports workers!

So, I thought it would be good to let you know more about what happened after injured workers and those who supported injured workers, met and protested Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), in front of their building, here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Not only did we hold signs and allow drivers to read them, some people also did speaking.  Most of those who did, spoke about how WSIB is truly not supporting injured workers, the way they should be.

One speaker, whose name I do not know, spoke about how WSIB will be rewarded by the province of Ontario increasing the value of minimum wage.  And, how injured workers will be affected.  Thank you, sir... for explaining it to everyone.

I also spoke.  Please know I didn't say a lot. 

However, I commented about how WSIB does NOT help injured workers, always.

I commented about how WSIB does NOT always provide medical care that injured workers need.

I also commented about how WSIB does NOT always provide medicines prescribed to injured workers.

Even though I didn't speak much, I spoke truth.  And, people there, were happy I said it.

When the meeting here in Windsor in front of WSIB ended, we met at Fogular Furlan.  It's a centre where people can meet for purposes.  Like how another group met there, that evening supporting firemen/women and other fire workers.

Who met with us?

Anyone/everyone who knew about the dinner being held to honour Rolly Marentette.  As you may have read in the past, Rolly was a truly wonderful worker, who supported health care in various ways, including helping and being in support of injured workers.

Even though Rolly's funeral was only a couple days before this dinner meeting to honour him, he was still honoured... in remembrance.

And, so were injured workers.

You see, anyone who was not an injured worker, who attended the dinner meeting, had to pay the price for their dinner tickets.

However, anyone who was an injured worker, didn't have to pay for their dinner ticket.  Not even me.

For this, I was truly thankful.  And, felt like I was also being honoured, in addition to Rolly.

Even so, I was happy that speakers honoured Rolly. 

Thinking about this, made me think of Philippians 2:4, "Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others."

Amen!  We need to not look only at our own things, but we need to look at the things of others.

Just as whoever set up that dinner meeting did.

Thank you... whoever it was who set up the dinner meeting.  I think I know, and thanked some of those people there, but since I truly am not sure, I don't want to quote who I think it was.

Please know that I pray that some day, WSIB will do what they need to do, to support injured workers in a better way, instead of making it worse and worse for injured workers.

Please join me in prayer.

Pray for injured workers.

Pray that WSIB will stop hurting injured worker, in some ways.

Pray that WSIB will help injured workers more than they have.

Pray that anyone/everyone who works for WSIB will truly become Christian and will gain salvation by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Why Do I feel this way?

I don't believe that anyone who truly belongs to God, would want to work anywhere hurting others.

Thank you for praying.

May God bless you.

Support...

I decided I should let you know about something, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It actually happened a while ago. On June 1st, Injured Workers Day!

As you probably read in the past, injured workers and people who support injured workers met and protested on Ouellette Ave., here in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.  In front of the building where Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB), is located.

We met at 4:00 p.m.  Many of us wore yellow T-shirts that advertised and promoted the Ontario Network of Injured Workers Groups (ONIWG).

ONIWG not only supports injured workers within our province of Ontario.  They also annually hold what they call, #JUSTICE BIKE RIDE, showing bicycles and bike-riders on the T-shirts. 

Also, the T-shirts say, In Unity There is Strength.

I must admit, I truly agree with what the T-shirts said.  And, appreciate what ONIWG members did this year, just like they've done in the past.

Every year, ONIWG has people who are bike riders meet in a city away from Toronto, Ontario.  In the past, they met in Windsor, but this year, they met in Ottawa, Ontario.

Those people rode their bikes along the way to Toronto, wearing those yellow T-shirts while supporting and promoting injured workers.  For this, I am truly thankful.

Of course, they arrived and met in Toronto at the Injured Workers Day meeting that was advertised and promoted to happen on June 1st.  Again, I must say I am truly thankful. 

Thank you!  May God bless you for all you have done for injured workers!

I'm also thankful that they provided us with those yellow T-shirts. 

Why? 

Because we do not have T-shirts of our own.  And, by wearing them, like the ONIWG members were doing, we were able to honour them, and other fellow injured workers.

Yes, we did that.  We met.  We did our protest in a quiet way. 

There were signs so drivers could read while driving by.  Or, read while they were stopped by the traffic light nearby.

We didn't do anything to hurt WSIB or any of their workers.

Thinking about all we did, made me think of Philippians 2:3, "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves."

Amen.  We need to do nothing through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness of mind, we need to esteem others better than ourselves. 

Just like we did, while supporting ONIWG members and other injured workers.

For this, I am truly thankful. 

Thankful to all who supported injured workers on Injured Workers Day.

Of course, I am thankful to God.

And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

Happy Labour Day!

I'll be letting you know how important today is,
here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).
 
Why is today important?
 
It's...
Labour Day!
 
On
Labour/Labor Day,
(spelling depending upon the country)
people who work
here in Canada, USA
or other countries,
are celebrated.
 
If you'd like to read about it,
click on this link:
 
Thinking about how people work
made me think of
Colossians 3:23,
"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily,
as to the Lord,
and not unto men;"
 
Yes, whatever we do,
we need to do it
heartily to
the Lord,
and not unto men.
 
Meaning,
even though we do work
with/for people,
we need to make sure
we work hard,
and do all for
our Lord.
 
Enjoy your special day
that you're able to share with
family and friends.
 
I will wish you...

Breathe...

Today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be sharing something with you.

Yes, today is a very special day.  For it's our day of worship!

We need to worshipping in spirit and in truth.  Hopefully, you do.

In addition, we can worship through music.  :)

The music I'm sharing with you today, is by Michael W. Smith and is entitled, Breathe.  Here is a link for you to listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-0EgzOWkvc&feature=youtu.be.  The lyrics are below.

Breathe

This is the air I breathe
This is the air I breathe
Your Holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread
This is my daily bread
Your very Word spoken to me

And I... I'm desperate for you
And I... I'm lost without you

This is the air I breathe
This is the air I breathe
Your Holy presence living in me

This is my daily bread
This is my daily bread
Your very Word spoken to me

And I... I'm desperate for you
And I...  I'm lost without you

And I... I'm desperate for you
And I... I'm lost without you.

I'm lost without you.

I'm lost without you.

I'm desperate for you.

(Cry out to live)


I'm desperate for you... 

I'm desperate for you... 

I'm lost without you now

I'm desperate for you


I'm desperate for you
 I'm lost, I'm lost, I'm lost without you..

I'm lost without you

I'm lost without you.

I'm lost without you.

I'm desperate for you.


(How many of you are hungry for God? Are you hungry for Him?)
Amen!  Amen!

This is the air we breathe!

Well, at least those of us who look to Him, for His presence.

Thinking of this, brought to mind Exodus 33:14, "And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest."

Just as today's Bible verse says, His presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.

Hallelujah!

It's exactly why the lyrics of today's music, refers to needing His presence.

We can be desperate and lost without Him.  But, when we come to Him, and gain his presence by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, He takes care of us.  And, gives us rest.

For this, I'm thankful.  And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

Become...

Today, is a day here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), when I'll do something like I've done in the past.

I'll tell you about movies I've watched!

Here are some movies I've watched:

Wee Willie Winkie, starring Shirley Temple, Victor McLaglen and other actors.  If you'd like to check out this American adventure film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wee_Willie_Winkie_(film).  Since I adore this extremely old movie, I've watched it many times and was happy to have seen it, again.

Baby, It's You, starring Rosanna Arquette, Vincent Spano and many other actors.  To check out this American film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_It%27s_You_(film).  Even though this film is about a young couple, it touched my heart.

A River Runs Through It, starring Craig Sheffer, Brad Pitt and many other actors.  Click on this link, to check out this American period coming-of-age drama filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_River_Runs_Through_It_(film).  Even though this movie was sad in some ways, I enjoyed watching it, since there were a couple brothers/family in the story.

For Keeps, starring Molly Ringwald, Randall Batinkoff and Kenneth Mars.  Would you like to check out this American coming-of-age drama film?  If so, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/For_Keeps_(film).  Even though this film involved a young couple with a stressful life, I enjoyed watching the movie.

In Country, starring Frank Pierson and Cynthia Cidre.  Please click on this link, to check out this American drama filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Country.  In some ways this movie made me sad, but also happy.  Especially, at the end of the movie, when the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. USA was attended.  It touched my heart seeing this in the movie, but also when I was there myself, years ago with my now deceased husband, Gordon and our children.

All these movies truly touched my heart.  After all, they all seemed to be based on young people's lives.

Thinking of this, I thought of 1 Corinthians 13:11, "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things."

Amen... When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became an adult (not a man, but a woman), I put away childish things.

We all need to do this.

We all need to put away childish things.

The best way to do it, is to read God's Word... the Bible.  This way we can become more educated, and knowledgeable.

When we read the Bible, we grow in our relationship with God. 

Childish things get put away.  We realize what God wants us to do.

And, what He'll do for us.

For this, I'm thankful.  And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord! 


Until next time...

Cannot!

There's something I need to show you, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

It's not something to hurt anyone by.  It's just something that will educate people on truth.

Here's what it is:

Did you read those verses from the Qur'an?

Were you amazed?

Are you wondering why I showed you this?

To be honest, I have tried to always speak truth.  Yet, so many people think that I'm not telling the truth regarding what the Qur'an teaches Muslims.

Please realize that EVERY Muslim is taught this through the Qur'an, and through teachings by their Imam's (Islamic pastors/ministers).  Yes... E...V...E...R...Y... Muslim.

So, are you thinking I'm putting down Muslims?

Hopefully, you don't think this, because I'm letting you know that not every Muslim does what their god wants them to do, just as these verses in the Qur'an state.  If they all did, they would all be what government officials would call terrorists.

After all, everything stated in that photo showing verses from the Qur'an are things that terrorists are doing.  Not just in one (1) country, but in many and various countries in the world.

So, as I heard someone else say, it is what terrorists do.

But, not all Muslims do it, even though they are taught that their god wants them to do it.

Is it different being Christian?

No. 

Not everyone who claims to be Christian is doing what our God wants us to do.

Many people who claim they are Christian do not read His Word, the Bible.  Many also do not worship.  Or, pray.

Some people decide that even though they love Jesus, our Lord, and have been forgiven by loving Him, they feel it is okay to sin.

But, it's not.

We all need a relationship with Jesus. 

If we truly trust Him and believe upon Him, we will begin to have a relationship with Jesus and will gain salvation.  Plus, as we do what God wants us to do, our relationship grows closer to Him, with less and less sin.

People who are truly born-again Christians don't want to sin.

Just as we read, in 1 John 3:9, "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God."

Amen!  Whoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Do you sin?

Do you lie?

Do you murder people?

Do you rape people?

Do you abuse people?

If so, you do not belong to God, for you are sinning.

Please, come to Christ.  Today.

Tomorrow may be too late.

20 Years...

Today, is a day that I would like to mention about someone, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  It's actually 20 years ago, when someone died.

Who was it?

Princess Diana!

Here is a link for you to read about Diana, Princess of Waleshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana,_Princess_of_Wales.

Diana, was someone I truly adored.  I must admit, I felt broken-hearted when she died.  :'(

An article regarding Diana, was posted a while ago.  I decided to not share it until today.

I found the article online by msn.com and it was entitled, Princess Diana crash limo was 'death trap' that had been written off and rebuilt according to shock new claimshttp://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/princess-diana-crash-limo-was-death-trap-that-had-been-written-off-and-rebuilt-according-to-shock-new-claims/ar-BBBKl0A?li=AAadgLE&ocid=ientp.

Please... click on that link, and read the entire article.  I can't share it all with you, but I will share a small amount of interesting information that was stated (I copied/pasted): 

The only survivor of the car crash was Trevor Rees-Jones, a former Parachute Regiment soldier turned bodyguard, now aged 49.

Mr. Rees-Jones, who was the only person sitting in the Mercedes wearing a seatbelt, was rushed to hospital and made a remarkable recovery.

Mr. al-Fayed has always been convinced that Diana’s death was the result of an MI6 plot ordered by the Royal Family.

They did not want to see the Princess marry Dodi following her divorce from Prince Charles, Mr. al-Fayed has alleged.

But in 2008 a British jury delivered an inquest verdict of ‘unlawful killing’ caused by the ‘grossly negligent’ Henri Paul, who was speeding away from the paparazzi’s mopeds.

Wow!

It's truly amazing how different people think, regarding the collision that ended Diana's life.

Did anyone truly know that her life would end at her age?  Not really.

We truly don't know what will happen in our lives.  Or, when our lives will end.

Thinking of this, made me think of James 4:14, "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away."

Amen... we have no idea what will happen tomorrow, regarding our lives.  Our life is even a vapour that only appears for a little time, and then vanishes away.

Knowing our lives will end, we need to be prepared.  And, we need to have gained salvation, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

For then, we won't spend eternity in Hell, separated from God, forever, with no chance of escape, as what will happen for those who do not gain salvation.

Instead, we will spend eternity in Heaven with Him.

For this, I'm thankful.  And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!

You Are!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), there's something I need to discuss.

What is it about?

1.cbn.com posted an article entitled, London Attack Came After Experts Warned to Brace for 'Holy Month of Jihad'http://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2017/june/experts-warn-to-prepare-for-holy-month-of-jihad-and-martydom-as-muslims-observe-Ramadan.

Please make sure you click on the link and read the entire article.

Yes, I will share with you what the article states.  Please realize that I could not share the video with you that is on that article page. 

So please... please... please... watch that video!  It's truly very important!

Here's what the article states (I copied/pasted):

Watch CBN News' George Thomas'  interview with Middle East expert Robert Spencer & former Muslim Isik Abla on why Islamic terrorists are commanded to kill during Ramadan

ISIS is calling on its followers to massacre civilians during Islam's holy month of Ramadan, saying violence is a 'beloved" act to Allah.

And it appears the bloodletting is underway.

Sigh...

Why my Canadian government would think I'm speaking against Islam truly makes me ill.

After all, I am not saying anything bad regarding Islam.  I'm only sharing truthful articles and videos from time to time, so that people can become educated and understand what Islam is truly about.

Thinking of this, made me think of John 8:44-45, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not."

Amen!  Amen!

Jesus said... Ye are of your father the devil (meaning Satan), and the lusts of your fall ye will do.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.  When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

This totally describes the Islamic prophet Muhammed. 

Don't believe me?  Read the Qur'an.  Or, other Islamic holy books.

A woman who converted from Islam, to Christianity, spoke truth on that video I asked you to make sure you watched.  Yes.  She spoke truth!

Of course, Jesus also said... and because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.

Which is exactly how I feel, since so many people don't want to believe that I speak truth.

Well, I speak truth.

And, always will.


Until next time...

P & R...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be sharing with you something I wrote a long, long time ago, and forgot to share with you.

What is it about?  I'll be discussing something that relates to people in general.

Some people don't believe in mixing politics and religion.

In fact, our legal rights in Canada and in USA allow us freedom of religion. 

I praise God for this!  After all, there are many countries in this world, that are dominated by groups who kill others, in order to maintain their dominance in religion.

On the surface, it sounds like a good thing to not mix politics and religion. 

However, the reality of such a statement is, at least in my mind, impossible.  Why?  Well, look at the reality of the statement and the situation that surrounds it.

Each of us have been brought up in one of many religious or non-religious environments. 

Some don't believe in God at all.  Where they get their opinions on right and wrong, are anyone's guess. 

Those considered to be religious in nature, get their opinions on right and wrong from their varied religious backgrounds.

True?  Hopefully, you agree.

As for me, I do not consider myself religious.  Although, I do believe in God.  And, in my Saviour, my Lord, Jesus Christ, who has saved me from an eternity in Hell, by providing a way of escape for me.  Yes, I will be spending eternity in heaven with God, forever.  For...e...v...e...r. 

That's a long time!

Because I trust in Jesus, I also believe God's Word, the Bible.  It teaches those who believe, not just what to believe upon, but also how to live their lives.

Okay, I'm not perfect.  I've had times in my life when I know God would be ashamed of me.  I've been ashamed of myself. 

But, Jesus said in Luke 5:32, "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."

So, okay.  We agree.  I'm not perfect.  But, neither are you.  In fact, no one is perfect. 

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

What I am leading up to, is the fact that because I believe in Jesus Christ, and have repented, plus because I believe God's Word, the Bible, I believe in what has been taught, concerning right from wrong.

In my opinion, this is the basis for political agenda. 

Hopefully, it's your opinion, as well.


Until next time...

H.B. J! & Missing Mom...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I want to wish my grandson, J... Happy Birthday!  I pray you'll have a wonderful, special day; I'll look forward to seeing you!  Happy Birthday!

Now, I'll address an issue that truly touches my heart.

It's regarding my mom's death.  August 27th, was the anniversary of my mom's death.

I must admit that I miss my mom.  And, it's now 15 years since her life ended.

Truly, I miss both my mom and dad.  :'(

Here is a photo of my mom and dad, when we celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, many years ago.
My mom and dad... February 22, 1972

It's possible that some people would say I am still feeling grief. 

It may be the case.  But, it seems to happen not just with my mom, but also with other people who I've loved, who died.

Yes, I miss her. 

Just as I miss other people.  I miss my deceased husband, my brother, my granddaughter and other relatives and friends.

Is this grief? 

Only God knows, to be sure.  I'm sometimes thinking it's grief, but sometimes just think that I miss those people I love.

Even so, God knows that we will feel this way when someone we love, dies.

Thinking about the loss we feel when someone we love dies, made me think of James 4:9, "Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness."

Yes, we can be afflicted.  And, usually are.

We mourn... and weep.

Just as we read in today's Bible verse, we need to let our laughter be turned into mourning and our joy into heaviness.

This tells us that God truly knows how we will feel, and how we truly need to feel.  Plus, He helps us... always.

For this, I'm thankful.  And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...

Cup Runneth Over!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I always mention that today is our day of worship, since it is Sunday!

Yes, we need to worship.  Always.

In addition to worshipping in spirit and in truth, we can also worship through music.  Just as I enjoy doing.

A Facebook (FB) friend of mine, shared another song that I had never before heard.  And, enjoyed.

It's by Jabez and is entitled, Am Drinking From My Saucer.  Here is a link on YouTube, for you to listen to and/or sing along:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg4AX8OZnng.  The lyrics are below.

Am Drinking From My Saucer

OOhhh yeah, we worship you Lord, yeah
Come on ..... yeah
I've never made a fortune
It's probably not too late
Oh but I don't worry about that much
'Cause I'm happy anyhow
 
As I go along life's journey
I'm reaping better than I sowed
I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed
 
Ain't got a lot of riches
Sometimes the going is rough
But I've got a friend in Jesus
And that makes me rich enough
I thank God for all His blessings on me
And the mercy He's bestowed
I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed
 
(((you know right now, you may be going through some rough times in your life, but I'm here to encourage you today, Not to give up!
I pronounce a blessing upon your life, upon your family, you must prosper and be good in health in the name of Jesus, I believe with all my heart)))
 
So Lord help me not to grumble and complain
Of the tough roads I have known
I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed

And if I should go on living
Should the way get steep and rough
May I ask for no other blessing, Jesus
'Cause I'm already blessed enough
May I never be too busy
To help a brother bear his load
I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed

Yes, I'm drinking from my saucer
'Cause my cup has overflowed
My cup has overflowed

Amen!  Our cups runneth over, if/when we belong to God.

Just as we read, in Psalm 23:5-6, "Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever."

He will prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies.  He will anoint our head with oil; our cup runneth over.

Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:  and I will dwell in the house of the Lord, forever.

This is truly how I feel, since I belong to Him.

Do you?

Hopefully, so.

For if you do, God will truly bless you.


Until next time...

He Is!

Do you have any idea what I'll do today, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).  Hopefully, you do!

If you think I'll share with you some movies I've watched, you're correct!  That's what I'll be doing.  :)

Here are some movies I've watched:

Survivor, starring Milla Jojovich, Pierce Brosnan and other actors.  Would you like to check out this British-American spy thriller film?  If so, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivor_(film).  Even though this movie was upsetting to me, I watched it.

Experiment in Terror, starring Glenn Ford, Lee Remick and other actors.  If you'd like to check out this suspense thriller film, click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiment_in_Terror.  Even though I found this movie stressful, I watched it.

Fanatic (also known as Die! Die! My Darling!), starring Donald Sutherland, Stephanie Powers and Tallulah Bankhead.  Click on this link, to check out this British thriller filmhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fanatic_(film).   I watched this movie, even though it was truly stressful.

Fail Safe, starring Henry Fonda, Walter Matthau and other actors.  To check out this Cold War thriller film, please click on this link:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fail_Safe_(1964_film).  I'm glad it was fictional, because it was scary.

Death Hunt, starring Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin and other actors.  Please, click on this link, to check out this action film (thriller)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Hunt.  Honestly, I didn't like what was involved in this movie, but I watched it.

Even though these movies all seemed to give anxiety, I watched them.  By watching them, I'd figure out if God worked things out.

After all, He's with us.

Just as we read, in Isaiah 43:5, "Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;"

Yes, more was begun to be discussed in today's Bible verse, but truly I wanted to focus on the beginning part of the Bible verse. 

Why?

Because just as we read in today's Bible verse, we need to fear not, for He is with us! 

Well, He is with us... if we belong to Him.

I do.

Do you?

All you need to do, to belong to Him, is to gain salvation, by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ.

If you haven't yet done it, please do it... today!  Now!

Tomorrow, may be too late.


Until next time...

Satan...

If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that I discussed Islam.  And, how it's god is the devil.  Satan.

Some people don't believe Satan exists.  But, I know the truth.  He does.

How do I know this?

After reading God's Word, the Bible many times, I know for certain he's here on earth.  In fact, he is basically god of this world... of those who are not yet born-again Christians.

Also, in the past, he has affected part of my life.  And, I've met people who worshipped him.

Someone shared an article that was upsetting to me.  It was about how a high school football coach, was put on paid leave, after being removed from doing his job.

Why?  Because he prayed with the football team high school students.

Check it out, by reading this link by nydailynews.com entitled, Washington high school football coach placed on leave for praying at games:  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/wash-high-school-football-coach-leave-praying-article-1.2416715.

Here is another link to the article I just mentioned.  To me, this one gives even more information.  It's by Sfgate.com and is entitled, The Latest:  Praying coach, Satanists attend gamehttp://www.sfgate.com/news/article/The-Latest-Satanists-still-plan-to-attend-high-6598684.php.Sat.

To me, it was upsetting that Satanists were able to do this.

I must admit that I had a problem with someone on Facebook (FB). 

Please know that I am not putting down FB.  I truly enjoy FB.  And, I am grateful to be able to use it to honour God!

Just so you know, I was a member of a group of women, who met from time to time. 

This group has pages of various sorts on FB.  This is mainly how the group passes along information.  And, is how contact can be easily made with other members.

It was shocking to me what happened.

After being a member of the group for about a year, I was removed from the majority of the group's pages.  And, even blocked from one.

Why?

There was a person, who didn't like me ending my FB comments, as I usually do.  Normally, at the end of each comment, I try to bless people. 

Instead of saying, God bless you... I usually say, Blessings... 

Okay, I type it.  But, you know what I mean, I'm sure.  After all, Blessings, is easier and quicker to type than the full statement of God bless you.

I got messaged from the person, who was upset seeing me 'blessing' people. 

I was told to stop typing the word... blessings at the end of my comments.

Sigh...

She also criticized me, and put me down for doing it.

I responded.  And, let her know that I do not do that to hurt anyone; I do it to bless people... to help them.

She replied that I was NOT to do it, ever again.

We had quite a discussion.

I let this woman know that as a Christian, it is the best thing I can do for people. 

I asked her, if we had a Muslim woman in our group, would she tell her  to not wear a hijab, or do anything that wasn't acceptable to her.  No response about that.

But, I was put down for blessing others... because, I am Christian.

In fact, not only was I put down, but as I said earlier, I was removed and blocked from most of our group pages.  There is only a page I can access for our group, where people can ask for help or offer help for items. 

Just so you know, I had also been not allowed to attend some of our group meetings, that happen from time to time, like I used to do.

At first, I thought the problem was that this and another person were not Christian.

However, even though I wasn't aware of it at the time, I found out later, that Satan is involved.

How did I find this out?

Wait 'til you hear what I have to say!  LOL  :)  and :'(  You'll probably be shocked.

Being that I am a member of this group, I received a special e-mail and was invited by someone else to attend a group meeting for all who are doing truly well

At the meeting, a woman sat next to me, who I had met a year before, and I seen at various places.  She is partially disabled.  And, so am I.  So, we related well to each other.

As conversations were taking place, I looked over at the woman I had trouble with on FB.  I almost had heart-failure.

She was wearing a ring. 

When I looked at it, I was shocked.  It had a star on it, surrounded with a circle.

A pentagram... the Satanic symbol.

In case you don't know what I am referring to, I will share with you a pic of what I am talking about.


There are other pics I could share, but don't really want to.  The other pics, use this for a basis, and add other images on with it.

While this woman's ring was a little more complicated, I admit that I realized that this woman was wearing a Satanic ring.

Then, I looked at her necklace.  And, it was similar!

I actually leaned over and whispered to the partially-disabled woman who was seated next to me, and who we had shared conversations.  I let her know, because she is also a born-again Christian.

Hopefully, she saw and understood.  I truly am not aware, because we didn't discuss it, further.  But still, I hope she understood.

Why?  Because I knew that I had been hurt by that woman, who was Satanic. 

After all, Satan destroys things in our lives, at times. 

Thinking of this, made me think of John 10:10, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."

Yes, the thief (Satan) cometh not, but for to steal, kill and destroy. 

Much like he did to me, in his evilness of robbing me from being able to access group pages on FB, plus attend the majority of group meetings.  And, about how he literally destroyed our relationship, between me and a couple of group members.

But as Jesus said,  "I am come that they might have life, and they might have it more abundantly".

How grateful I am that Jesus did this!  For me, and hopefully for you, also.

My friend, if you haven't yet come to Christ, please do so, today.  Tomorrow, may be too late.

Besides, Jesus loves you.

And, He will provide for you, always.


Until next time...
