#7 = #2...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be telling you about something I did.  Actually, I did it Saturday, May 27th

I should let you know that my friend, D had invited me to attend a Trivia night with some adults from her church.  In the past, I've attended women's group meetings there.  And, have sung there, just as you may have read in the past.

To be honest, I was a little bit nervous thinking about attending.  But, I truly wanted to.  So, I did.

When I arrived, I found out I was in group #7.  To be honest, I didn't even count the tables to know how many there were, but there had to be many more than 7.

Four (4) of us were seated at each group table.  It was shocking to me that I didn't know any of the other three (3) people, who were part of our table group. 

I have to admit that we did get to know each other fairly well!

We participated in four (4) games.  The basis for each game was different. 

The first game was based on the Bible.  Of course this didn't shock me.  :)

The other games were based on other items like entertainment, sports and then, history/geography.

Each game had 10 questions.  Together, we decided on what to use as an answer, and our answer was written on the paper page given to us.

After the paper pages were collected from every group, then we were all told what the answers were.

Sometimes, we were shocked.  Shocked because we got the answer correct... or, because we answered incorrectly!  :)

Since we all brought types of food that were nice to share with everyone, we also enjoyed eating, together.

In any case, I must say that we definitely got to know each other.  And, enjoyed participating in the evening of fellowship.

Thinking how positive and enjoyable it was to participate in the evening of fun and fellowship, made me think of Proverbs 17:22, " A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones."

Yes, a merry heart does good like medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones.  Just as we read in today's Bible verse.

Knowing that everyone not just our table, but in the whole fellowship room, enjoyed spending the evening together, I realize that no one had a broken spirit.  Even though not everyone or every group did well participating in the trivia event.

It seemed that everyone had a merry heart.  To me, it seemed everyone enjoyed their time, there.  Just like I did.

So, I believe that everyone felt like I did.  Blessed.

Yes, I enjoyed my time with the whole group that evening.  But, I must say I also enjoyed being with the group of us seated at table #7.


We found out that we who were of table #7, didn't win as the top/best knowledge group.  But, we found out we were in 2nd place!  :)

For all the enjoyment, I'm grateful for participating in the group event. 

I'm also thankful my friend invited me.  Thank you, D!

However, I'm also grateful that I felt truly blessed.

Thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
