Personal perspectives ministering to those in nursing and assisted care facilities
Tuesday, November 27, 2018
As I entered the nursing care facility this morning I was immediately met by a residents who, in just the past few days, tried to commit suicide. Loneliness can set in especially this time of the year. I started some music for everyone to listen to but then we didn't start singing right away because it was time for the two of us to have a talk. It is very important to know we are loved. It's not just the love of God but it's the love of God through a person. He works through people. We all need to know that someone cares! After a few minutes we started the service. The joy of the Lord was present and we all know, it's the joy of the Lord that is our strength.
