Every day is Saturday....

Theologically speaking, we all know that today, the Saturday between the Cross and the Resurrection, is the longest day of the year.

And, it pictures where we are in life. While we have a certain and fixed hope, we still wait for the return of Christ.

Nowhere is this felt more keenly than in the nursing home.

What a powerful reminder...I remember my Granddaddy...when he knew his end was near...after he had said his goodbyes to everyone...was so disappointed when he would wake up and still be here and not in glory...

Some very moving material. Thanks for sharing it :)

Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

Believe those words and surf on over to Click on a link or two. It costs nothing but it sure will help a fellow brother out so he can continue helping others.

Spread the word to other brothers and sisters. Be blessed.

What a great point! As a mother of four young children and a husband who desires more, the idea of relatives living with me sounds helpful. :)

Have you read M. Scott Peck's novel about a nursing home? Very good.

When my father was in his nursing home before his death he commented that religious issues took on a special clarity he had never before experienced.
