Tuesday, we went to an assisted care facility here in town and sang! It was such a thrill to see the joy on the elderly peopleâ€™s faces as they listened eagerly to what was being shared and sang. We also enjoyed seeing two of the residents that had been at the nursing home where we have church who are now living at the assisted care facility.
I got the privilege of talking to a 101 year old lady. She had such a sweet personality as she told me about her experiences when she grew up in Alaska by the Yukon. Her father was in the military, so they lived in the fort, and she also told me how the military men tamed a bear. She said that the bear especially liked candy! I cannot imagine how different society was 100 years ago than it is now. It is always a privilege getting a glimpse of what life was like back then, and ministering to the older saints.
Delighting in Jesus,
“The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow…” (Psalms 146:9)
