If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) last week, then you'll know I mentioned that I was going to move my van out of the parking lot, across the street from where I live.
Did I do it? Yes!
I actually drove away about 3:45 a.m. on Monday, May 15th, 2017.
Getting on Highway (Hwy) 401, I thought it would be good at that time of day. It was.
Well, at least just for a short time.
On Hwy 401, I entered a construction zone.
This meant instead of having two or three (2 or 3) driving lanes in each direction, we only had one (1) in each direction. And, we had to drive at a reduced speed.
Because there were several construction zones, with some were hugely long... and others that were shorter, this took so very long, to even arrive in London, Ontario.
Of course, when I arrived, I got some gas. Then, I actually had about a half (1/2) hour sleep.
Why? Well, at home, I wasn't able to sleep long before leaving. In fact, I had only one half (1/2) hour sleep, at home!
Back on Hwy 401, I hoped things would be different. But, there were several construction zones.
Then, as I arrived near Milton, Ontario, the traffic on Hwy 401... stopped. Sigh...
Once traffic began to move slowly, I exited onto Hwy 25 and headed down to Steeles Ave. As I drove along there heading towards Brampton and Mississauga, I found a Canadian Tire store.
Canadian Tire did some work for me, in less than another half (1/2) hour. Thank you! Blessings...
Then, I headed down to Derry Rd., and headed to Mississauga, Ontario, where I needed to go to take my van.
After arriving and dropping off my van, I took a taxi cab to the Via Rail/Go Train station.
I requested to purchase a train ticket, so I could travel back to Windsor, Ontario, where I live.
Instead of getting the ticket, the woman working there let me know that they no longer sell Via Rail train tickets at this location... even though the train stops there when people are waiting to board. Nor, at any other cities could anyone purchase a train ticket at the train stations, except the main ones in the province. She let me know that I would have to take a Go train to the Union Station, in downtown Toronto to purchase a rail ticket.
This was so shocking to me, I let her know this.
Plus, I let her know that it was really upsetting. Especially, since she had a computer screen that we both could see.
She had gone onto the Via Rail site, and confirmed what I told her, about how the system online didn't say that you needed to purchase tickets online, or at main cities.
At that time, I asked my Lord to help me. Even though I wasn't afraid.
Thinking of this, made me think of Deuteronomy 31:6, "Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."
Yes, I was strong and of a good courage, didn't fear, for I knew the Lord, my God didn't fail me.
I believed He would help me.
Believe me when I say I am grateful.
And, always will be.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
