Memorial Fellowship...

Did you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday?  If you didn't, maybe you should, now.

If you read yesterday's LwL entry, then you'll be aware that I attended a funeral/memorial service at Walkerville Evangelical Baptist Church (WEBC).  As you probably know, Tom Perry is the pastor there.  And, it was his mom who had died.

As I let you know yesterday, the memorial service was truly a blessing.

Afterwards, we went downstairs to the fellowship area.  This is where we all enjoyed a meal, together.  Thank you, dear church family!  It was delicious!

I must admit, I was truly blessed being there. 

Not just because of the wonderful meal we shared together.  But, also because I was able to see and speak with other church family members who I hadn't seen in a while.

In fact, a couple of sisters in the Lord, invited me to sit with them and another family member of theirs.  So, I did.

We had a wonderful time, together! 

I should let you know that while everyone was together, Tom Perry and his wife, Lynda... let everyone know about a problem that occurred.

What was the problem?

Well, our City of Windsor had created a rule that no one can park on grass.  But, may people had to park on grass, when they attended the funeral/memorial service.

Apparently, everyone who had parked on the grass received a ticket for parking on the grass.  I must admit, I was glad I hadn't, but was really upset for everyone who had.  And, I prayed.  Why?  I'll tell you another time.

Before the meal time was over, another announcement was made.

Apparently, elder Wasi had called someone from the City of Windsor.  Due to the need of parking for the funeral/memorial service, the City of Windsor agreed to cancel each and every ticket that was posted on vehicles.

Praise God!  Thank you, Lord!

What a blessing!

Not just what was done for those attending the funeral/memorial service.

However, whoever works for the City of Windsor who was approached by phone, regarding the tickets issued for parking on the grass, I feel must have been Christian.

Why do I think this?

I believe that if that City of Windsor representative wasn't Christian, he wouldn't have cared if people who needed to park there so they could attend the funeral/memorial service received a parking ticket.  Then, everyone parked there would have received a ticket that wasn't cancelled, even though they needed to park on the property owned by WEBC, even though it's not yet paved.  You see, there was no street parking available.

Being Christian, I believe that City of Windsor representative will be blessed.  For he removed the tickets and allowed people who needed to park there, do it.

I believe that person will be blessed.

Why do I think this?

It made me think 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 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.

Had the representative of the City of Windsor not done what he did, then people would have been hurt for attending the funeral/memorial service.

But, since he didn't act ungodly, and didn't hurt people, he will be blessed.

All I can say, is... thank you!  Hallelujah!

And... thank You, Lord!

Until next time...
