Thankful...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), there's something I feel I need to mention.  Just as I've done in the past.

Just as I mentioned in the past, I felt I should let you know that today is a sad and special day for me.

Why?

If my deceased husband was alive, today we would have celebrated our wedding anniversary.

Yes, I miss Gordon.  However, when my life ends, I'll see him, and we'll be with God.  For this, I'm thankful.

If you read the LwL entry on March 29, 2019, you'll know that what I just mentioned, was what I also stated back then, because it was the actual date of our wedding day anniversary.

However, as you may have read in the past, our wedding day was actually the Saturday, of the Easter weekend.

So, not just feeling sad on our anniversary day, I also feel sad, today.

Of course, I also feel sad when I think of other people who died... like my parents, my brother and/or other people I knew.

Sadness and/or grief doesn't truly end.  At least, that's how I feel.

However, if you read God's Word, the Bible, you'll know that we would have troubles in our lives.

Just as we read, in 1 Peter 4:12, "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:".

Amen!  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

It's not strange for me to experience fiery trials.  Like this one. And, many others that I've experienced.

Other people do, also.

Including a lady I met.  Her husband died on the Saturday of the Easter weekend.  So, I know she probably feels like me, on two (2) different dates.

Even so, I'm thankful that God helps me through each and every trial in my life.  And, will also help you.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
