As I was sitting for my friend Margaret,s mom, I thought of the daily trials she has to go through caring for her mom. Constantly busy running back and forth serving and ministering to her dear mom, who is now at the age of 92. How blessed is that. God has surely given her long life.
I’ve never known Mrs. Rose to be very sick, but now she does have dementia. She is not able to remember a lot, but Margaret always takes the time with her to listen and remind her who she is and cares for her with thorough concern.
What a wonderful job she is doing at this time God has given. She may not see that but from what I see she is doing her best.
I believe that’s what God would want, is our best. I know our Lord gives that special grace to do the things that is needed of us.
I love sitting with Mrs Rose when I’m able.
I know my sister cared for our dad many days. She would stop and see him a few times a week, sometimes daily after he was in a retirement home then a nursing home before he passed away.
I lived out of town and was not able to give the time as she gave, but I am sure the Lord will bless her for what she did. When he lived nearby, she would make him a big breakfast on Saturdays and he always looked forward to that. Many mornings she would stop and talk with him before she had to go to work, going out of her way to be there for him.
Sure loved and miss my dad.
Several come to mind of those who care for others. I am sure there are daily trials they go through, but no doubt God’s blessings will be upon those that has given of themselves to care for their loved ones.
May I commend you and encourage you by his sweet grace to continue on as the Lord leads and guides you daily.
I’m sure your reward will be great, and it’s all for God’s glory.
