Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be discussing something.
It's regarding something that happened here, in the city where I live... Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
Here is a link to an article from a while ago, by windsor.ctvnews.ca that is entitled, UWindsor to launch full internet investigation after woman suffers serious burns on campus: https://windsor.ctvnews.ca/uwindsor-to-launch-full-internal-investigation-after-woman-suffers-serious-burns-on-campus-1.3842935#_gus&_gucid=&_gup=twitter&_gsc=y1Q9GzL.
Hopefully, you clicked on the link and read the article. In case you didn't, I'm sharing some of what was stated in the article (I copied/pasted):
University of Windsor president Alan Wildeman says there were many witnesses around at the Odette School of Business when a woman suffered serious burns Tuesday afternoon.
Police were called to the fourth floor of the Odette building shortly after noon on March 13.
A 34-year-old woman’s injuries are considered very serious and she has been shipped to a Hamilton hospital for further care, said police. Sources confirm to CTV News the woman intentionally lit herself on fire.
Another man, a 46-year-old faculty member, also suffered minor burns while attempting to extinguish the fire, Wildeman said.
It also stated (I copied/pasted):
Because of the number of witnesses to the incident, the university has made additional counselling services available through Student Counselling Services and the University’s Employee Assistance Program.
Ooooeee! My goodness...
Hopefully, you also watched the video that was on the article page. If you did, then you must know that the woman is alive. And, the man that helped save her life, was injured.
Talk about it being something horrible that happened.
At this time, we can't understand why the woman set fire to herself. But, anyone like me, is thankful that the man who suffered burns did what he could to extinguish the fire.
Talk about good and not good!
It obviously wasn't good what the woman did to herself. Why she did this, I have no idea. Anyone wo read the article also wouldn't be aware of why this woman set fire to herself.
Obviously, she needs prayer.
So does the man who did what he could to save her life. After all, he was also injured.
I praise God that the man didn't think of only himself. For if he had, he wouldn't have helped save that woman's life.
Thinking of this situation, 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! Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
That's exactly what that man did!
If he had thought only about himself, then I believe he wouldn't have done what he could to help the woman from being burned to death. He absolutely did think of things of others... of the woman who needed the help he gave her.
Talk about a blessing! That man was truly a blessing!
Are either of these people Christian?
I have no idea. But, knowing that the man did what he could to help the woman, even though it risked his life, makes me think that possibly he is Christian.
Please, pray for these people. They both need healing.
And, if they don't belong to God, they need to. Just as all of us need to.
Hopefully, you've joined me in prayer.
If you have, then I believe God will bless you.
Until next time...
