Between working in Facebook a lot as I'm learning more about it and connecting with other caregivers for the #eldercarechat at Twitter, my heart has been touched several times by the pain different friends are experiencing this week while caring for elderly parents. This is one of the many comforting Bible verses that has blessed me so much over the years and I wanted to share it with them and with you to fill you with HIs comfort.
This is my comfort in my affliction, that Your word has revived me. Ps. 119:50 (NASB)
These words hold me up in bad times; yes, Your promises rejuvenate me. Ps. 119:50 (MESSAGE)
I have seen this proved out in my life over and over and I cling to the awesome Word of God. I pray it will bless each of you, in and out of the Sandwich Generation.
I am caring for my elderly mum and it has been particularly difficult this week. Your post came at the right time. I’ll check out the hastag on Twitter too.
Thanks Kaye. It is a very trying time. I decided that she would live with me 20 years ago, in preparation for her latter years as I did not want her to go into a home. Now I am just hoping I can cope.
Oh Liz, I’m so glad to hear that. Please know I’m praying for you right now! 🙂 The #eldercarechat itself is every other Wednesday, and the next one is scheduled for July 27 @ 1 pm ET. You can also catch up on the last one dealing with depression at AARP where they have the recap! Just click here. 🙂
Hi Liz, That’s how I felt about my parents – I watched them help senior parents and other relatives and friends, and knew that I wanted to give them the same gift. It’s definitely full of challenges but, like you, I’m trusting God moment by moment, step by step. I will encourage you with the fact that I am so grateful for the time I gave my senior dad, even in the most difficult moments. As hard as it was, it’s definitely a blessing to look back and be grateful to God that i was able to give him that precious gift. Praying for you! 🙂
