Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

A Day at The Nursing Home

Yesterday we went to the nursng home to do little skit for the residents. We focused on God being Love and all the children got to dress up and do a little fashion show. Then we talked about all the different pieces of clothing and how they represent God's Love. It was so neat to see the smiles on all of the resident's faces. We have been taking the children their every month for about nine months and I can see how the children are beginning to feel more comfortable with everyone. At the end of the skit we sang songs and the residents joined in and sang along.

What a wonderful day we had spreading God's love to a generation of people who I really believe are sometimes forgotten. We all need to remember that we are going to be their age someday and I pray that I am not forgotten. It is so easy to just love someone. It makes them feel so important and needed. I think sometimes I feel more blessed than they do when I walk out those doors. The saying is so true "you are blessed to be a blessing"

This is so true! We are blessed to be a blessing! Ali loves to visit the elderly, she has a real heart for them and when she leaves, she feels like she has truly given, from her heart, the way God has commanded her to do.
Good post!
