I am glad you called! This was my response when a lady called to ask me some questions regarding the care of a family member. She shared the many situations of the illness and the frustration with making fragile (delicate) decisions as a caregiver. This is one of the struggles of serving. When we finished talking , I realized the importance of listening in order to be involved on the art of caring and serving. My role as a minister and Faith Community nurse as well as a caregiver helps me through the journey. This is the delicate balance of caring
Fifty I am determined to write a short post about experiences that made my last fifty hours unforgettable. I participated in a “I Am My Sister’s Keeper” Prayer Breakfast and heard some awesome testimonies from women who stepped out of some difficult situations into positions of shining lights to purpose.
I chose this picture of my friend speaking about how God brings us through all the trials and tribulations of life. I am in amazement when I see the way the Lord picks us up, wipes away the tears and provides balm for our many different kind of wounds. In this picture there are sisters of all ages, colors and all gifts and Fruit of the Spirit as is described by the sign on the Church walls. In this span of three hours , situations were described and we heard the words, “He is a Constant Keeper and Praise the Lord.”
I am reading these words as a prayer from Proverbs 31. The words are my wake-up for wellness as I sit here on this new day. I looked into the eyes of a mother who had recently found herself in a valley after the death of her son. It was a really a mirror to me because I felt her soul and spirit. We smiled as I spoke words that I hoped comforted her and me. Wisdom sometimes hides behind the hurt of missing someone who has left this earthly life. Lord let me give your faithful instructions.
I discovered that when I wake up at 01:30 am CST and have the urge to pray, read and write, I am missing a great opportunity to participate in Blogging A to Z Challenge. I still don’t think I have the Ping Back routine so if you can tell me how to properly pull it off, please do so. I am pursuing a picture as a close to my goal of seven or more Ps in one post. #Peace, Wy
