Sad...

There is something I will let you know about, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL).

Here is a link for an article by toronto.ctvnews.ca that was published February 20, 2020, and is entitled, Canadian stranded in Cuba dies suddenly at airport waiting for flight homehttps://toronto.ctvnews.ca/mobile/canadian-stranded-in-cuba-dies-suddenly-at-airport-waiting-for-flight-home-1.4820940.

Please click on that link and read that aricle.  I will share a bit (I copied/pasted):

A Canadian man who was stranded on a small island in Cuba has died while waiting for his flight home.
Travellers have been stranded on Cayo Largo del Sur for several days after a runway at the island's only airport was damaged earlier this week. 
On Wednesday, passengers flying back to Toronto were taken to the closed airport to be processed before they took a ferry to Cuba's mainland. They were then flown out of Havana and arrived in Toronto around 5 a.m. on Thursday. 
Ontario woman Chantalle Menchions said she was waiting for the ferry, along with other Air Transat passengers, when a man suddenly dropped to the floor. 
The 24-year-old nurse said she ran over to the man but he didn't have a pulse.
"People started screaming. It was chaos," Menchions told CTV News Toronto on Thursday. She, along with four other people, immediately began to administer CPR. 
"People were yelling and freaking out. I started yelling at people to get out of the way."
"We checked for a pulse but there wasn't one. He wasn't responsive."
Menchions said about 15 minutes later, a medical team arrived at the airport and took the man away. She said she was never given an update about the man's condition.
It also stated (I copied/pasted):

The airport is scheduled to reopen on Feb. 26.

Wow!

It was sad reading about how that man collapsed and died while he was waiting to fly home to Toronto, Ontario, Canada... and how the Cuba airport was closed for a while.

Obviously, other people were upset when that happened.

After all, they seemed afraid... since they yelled and freaked out.

Thinking about that, made me think about Psalm 56:3, "What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.".

Amen!  What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

I have no way of knowing if that man who died, had been a believer... or... not.

Please realize that I pray for his family and friends.

But, because I AM a believer, who belongs to God... I trust in Him.

After all... life isn't easy... but, God IS good.

And He helps me... every day of my life, since my life isn't always good.

So, all I can say... is... thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
