Praise for special people God puts in our lives....
I work in a care facility and work with dememtia residents. One of my residents is a man who taught seminary for many years, is an author of a couple of books and lived his life as an expamle of a very Godly loving husband and father. I met he and his wife when he was addmitted into my facility almost three years ago now and yesterday was their 51st anniversary. This couple has been such an inspiration to me. I just want to thank God for bringing them into my life and allowing me to be a person to help take care of him and make a differece in their lives. These are the people who make my job the wonderful job it is. So many people ask me how I do my job day in and day out and all I can say is that it is a blessing to me!
A couple of years ago his wife gave me a copy of one of his books that he had signed before Parkinsons disease took over his mind and body completely. Yesterday I was able to get a card and help him sign it for her in his own hand writing. (something he hasn't done in several years) I layed it on his dresser in his room so when she came in for one of her twice daily visits she found it. So now we both have a treasure.
I lift up my eyes to the hills-
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
