In The Past...

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

It's something that many people would not really be focusing on.  But, I am.

What is it?

On Monday, March 13th, I heard on the news that Scotland is hoping to remain as part of Europe, even though the United Kingdom (UK) has not.  Just as I heard about last year.

Here is a link to an article by cnn.com entitled, Brexit:  Bill sent back to House of Lordshttp://www.cnn.com/2017/03/13/europe/brexit-article-50-parliament/.

If you read it, you'll have seen this (I copied/pasted):

"It will be Scotland's choice and I trust the people of Scotland to make that choice."

Sturgeon said she wanted the referendum to take place between late 2018 and early 2019, before Brexit negotiations are completed. That would enable her to argue that Scotland should stay in the EU as the rest of the UK left.

This may not affect many of you who read about this.  But, it does upset me.

I'm sure you think it is funny that it upsets me, since I am Canadian.  But, it does.

UK is three-quarters (3/4) of my heritage.  Yes, I don't live there, but I do have relatives who do.

My mom's parents were both from England.  My dad's mom was from Northern Ireland and his dad (my grandpa) was from Bukovina which is known today as Ukraine (and Romania). 

My granny from Northern Ireland's dad was from Glasgow, Scotland.  Even though I haven't met relatives there, I know there are some.

Of course, there's another person in my life that is very important. 

My friend, I... was from Glasgow, Scotland.  After her parents died, he older sister and brother-in-law who were newly married, brought her to Canada.

How long ago?  50 years ago!

They all became Canadian citizens.  However, like me, our heritage was mainly from the UK.

Things are truly changing in this world.

What am I referring to?

Well, it breaks my heart that Scotland wants to separate from being part of the UK.

Just as my heart has felt broken over and over again in the past, that our Canadian Province of Quebec, has wanted to separate from Canada.  Voting has almost made it happen in the past.  And, now that our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau is hurting Canada badly, I believe he's doing so to help make Quebec separate from Canada, just as he wanted it to, in the past.

What I can I do about any of this?

All I can do, is speak truth, pray, and seek God to help.

By speaking truth, being humble and praying, I am doing what God would have me do.  For He has told us to do this, in various Bible verses.

Just as we read, in 2 Chronicles 7:14, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Yes, He wants us... His people, which are called by His name to humble ourselves, pray and seek His face and turn from our wicked ways; then, He will hear from heaven and will forgive our sin, and will heal our land.

My friend, please do this, for Canada, Scotland/UK, and your country if it isn't them. 

We all need to do what God wants us to. 

I will.

Will you?

Hopefully, so.  Please, pray.

For if we all do, He will our lands.

For this I'll always be thankful!

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
