Today I lost a dear friend after a long battle with cancer. The sadness that I have at knowing I can no longer pick up the phone or get in the car to see Maria is strong. But stronger still is the peace which I have knowing she is in the throne room of grace and in the presence of Jesus. I have found over the years that at moments when words no longer come God has given us music and songs that can connect us to heaven. How I need that connection today. If you also are in that place I pray this short video will be a comfort and blessing to you.
Do you sometimes feel lonely? Think about the fact that last year less than 40% of residents in full time nursing care received a single visit from a family member or a friend. What could you do to make that different in 2017?
Here are just some simple insights gained from over twenty years ministering at nursing homes. I hope these will be a help, an encouragement and a blessing for anyone wishing to serve better where they are called!
