Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I would like to thank people.
I'm not sure if I would thank you, but if I should, I will.
For wishing me Happy Birthday!... on Saturday, November 24, 2018!
It was LwL's 9th birthday, since I began writing LwL. However, it was also my birthday.
Early in the morning, I received texts on my cellphone and phone calls, from relatives and friends who do not live anywhere near me. Yes, they wished me... Happy Birthday! I was thankful! :)
All through the day, the evening and even on Sunday, I received comments/messages on Facebook (FB) from my FB friends who wished me... Happy Birthday!
Plus, I received e-mails from friends and relatives who wished me... Happy Birthday!
Around lunchtime, I got a text from a daughter of mine, to wish me... Happy Birthday, and to have a great day.
Later in the afternoon, I got a phone call from my other daughter, who was out driving and spending time with a friend of hers. She wished me... Happy Birthday!
Did my family members come to see me? No.
Someone thought my family would take me out to dinner. Did they? No.
Even though my grandchildren are old enough to call me, or text me... they didn't. Why? I believe it is because my daughters never taught them to contact me and wish me... Happy Birthday!
I know that I'm not important. Not to some people in this world.
But, I am important to God. And, He loves me.
Just as Jesus said, in John 15:9-14, "As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.".
Amen! As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.
Yes, I not perfect. But, I do what He commands me. And, I read the entire Bible, every year. In fact, I read the Bible, daily.
By reading His Word, the Bible, I have come to realize what life can be like for people. It won't always be the same for everyone. But, God lets us know what could happen.
For this, I'm thankful! Especially, since I love Him.
After all, He also tells us over and over again, about how He loves us. And, how we need to love, others... and Him!
For this, I'm thankful. And, always will be.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
