An Afternoon of Sharing

Friday afternoon, we had the privilege of sharing through music and testimony at a nursing home about an hour from home. The activities’ director used to be the activities’ director at the nursing home we currently have church services at. It was a joy and blessing to see her again and share with their home! We were warmly received and welcomed. It was a delightful time of ministering. It felt so good to be back in Uriah for the drive–climbing into the bus just feels like home away from home!

Setting up!
Shadow, was the "resident" dog, and much loved, from all appearances.
America, the beautiful. How I wish America would turn back to God!

(For those who may have noticed the absence of Mom, she stayed back at home to help with Melanie and Abby :-)). ..


“The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness” (Proverbs 16:31).

  1. Looks like you all had fun ! And I agree, I wish America would turn back to God. People wonder why we are having so many problems lately, when the answer is so clear, atleast to Christians. If God is not in it, then nothing will be as it should.

  2. How is Melanie and the baby doing? I think about and pray for them both throughout the day.
    Thank you for praying; they’re both doing great! Melanie is still staying down and keeping her activity level low… The baby appears to be doing well so far :-). Sarah

  3. Elderly people are such a blessing…especially when they love the Lord! I wish that more people would visit them and show them love.

    I, too, wish America would turn back to God but I do not think at this point they will. I am looking forward to the Lord returning to take us Home to be with Him. All the more reason to be harvesting for Him and witnessing where-ever we go.

    Many blessings to you and your family!!!

  4. What a blessing your family surely is to those precious folks at the nursing homes! I am so glad you all minister to the elderly (I’ve always had a special place in my heart for older folks). Viewing the sweet pictures does bring tears, though–because it reminds me of when my precious Mama lived in one her last six months on earth (she went to Heaven five years ago this month). ~ Thank you for sharing this post, and continued prayers for Melanie, Baby Max, and ALL the Maxwells. Love in Christ, Patti M.

  5. What a blessing for you to be able to do the for the nursing homes. We sing once a month at a local nursing home. The older people just love it and enjoy seeing the children. It is a small group, but I feel so blessed afterwards just knowing we helped brighten an afternoon for them.

    So happy to hear Melanie and baby Max are doing well, will continue to keep praying! All things are possible with God! 🙂

  6. So good to see others reaching out to the elderly! We live in Canada, and also hope and pray that the Lord would turn both Canada and America to Himself. And that He would turn men in the government back to Himself. Best wishes for the whole family!

  7. I know you are a blessing to the folks at the home. What a joy for them to be able to spend an afternoon with you all in music and fellowship.

    I am back among the blogging 🙂 I can’t thank you enough for all your prayers these past two months–they have been appreciated.

    It is so good to catching up with you and seeing all your pictures. You are good friends.

    blessings, Mari

    —– We’re glad to have you back, Mrs. Mari. We’ve missed you :-). Sarah—–

  8. I forgot to add something. We recieved a beautiful card and photo from Melanie this week, and I am so excited to learn of the pregnancy. I am, of course, adding this to my prayer book and will share the news at Bible study tomorrow night for prayers.

    blessings, Mrs. Mari

  9. Sarah, your latest book is great! I just bought it. Thank-you for writing such great series of books for all of us to enjoy 🙂 Are you going to write anymore of them?

    Blessings, Erin
    Thanks for your note. Yes, Lord willing, there will be more. I’ve begun working on the Autumn Days outline :-). Sarah

  10. I’m commenting on a comment-I’m glad you’re writing more Moody books. My little brother and I have enjoyed reading them every afternoon for our “read time”. Sometimes he’ll say, “Read me a Moody book!” We are reading Summer Days right now, and our mom enjoys listening to the book when we read, as well. Praying for Melanie.
    Thanks, Sara! I appreciate your enthusiasm. If you and your brother have any ideas on what you’d like to see in a Moody book, I’d love to hear them. Just e-mail me at [email protected] if you think of some things! Sarah
