Reflections...On Life

My husband recently had to spend time in a rehabilitation facility.
It is also a nursing home..a very nice one.
Our church visits nursing homes regularly, so I am familiar with them.
But,
while he was there, I started looking around at the different residents.
And I thought," every one of these people have a story to tell."
At one time they were young, and healthy and strong, with dreams and plans for a different life than they have now.
Old age and ill health has brought such a change in their lives.
There was one gentleman who came three times every day to stay with his wife while she was eating her meals. When he had to leave, she would follow him to the door in her wheelchair.
Another  sweet man and his wife were both there...hoping to be put in a room together.
Some never have a visitor.
None of us know what the future holds...let's pray for compassion for the ones who can't help themselves.
Those of us who are able can still spread a bit of the Love of God.
And God's Love can reach down, even in old age and sickness, and heal the heart... and touch a soul.
Love and Blessings,
Shirley
