Daily Living Made Easier

The Sandwich Generation grandkids have been learning about the pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving - as this cute country clipart reminds usThanksgiving is only two weeks away. Christmas is oh-so-close behind it. And many of us in the Sandwich Generation are already making plans for family get-togethers all through the season.

Others, though, may be deep in the throes of dealing with the difficult family issues of life full of illness, grief, hospice, and death. That was my family several years ago at the end stage of my senior dad's Parkinson Disease and I still have such vivid memories of that all-consuming time. 

Still others may have a foot in both sides – trying to enjoy some sweet holiday cheer while caring for beloved elderly parents and/or your dear spouse or others suffering from long-term illnesses that can range from Alzheimer's Disease to stroke recovery to cancer to…

One of my goals at SandwichINK is to encourage you with comforting Bible verses and sweet praise and worship music while providing some simple and enjoyable holiday cheer. Then, even if you can't get out to the festivities you can still enjoy them a bit right at home. A simple way of "caring for the caregiver."

Yesterday I shared about an excellent book, full of great resources for the Sandwich Generation caring for a loved one at the end of their life. Today is Spiritual Sunday, full of sweet Christian encouragement, and I wanted to reshare one of my favorite Bible verses full of words of encouragement and comfort:

If the LORD had not been my help, My soul would soon have dwelt in the abode of silence. If I should say, "My foot has slipped," Your lovingkindness, O LORD, will hold me up. When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul…the LORD has been my stronghold, And my God the rock of my refuge. Psalm 94:17-29, 22

Enjoy one of my Smilebox eCards Creations with the lovely old Christian hymn song, Praise to the Lord, The Almighty, the King of Creation, sung by Christy Nockels on the Passion hymn album, Hymns: Ancient & Modern. Just click the arrow. 🙂

Don't you think the encouraging words from that lovely hymn go well with Psalm 94 as well as being delightful for the Thanksgiving season? I pray it was as much an encouragement for you as it was for me.

Keep checking back regularly for more holiday encouragement, comfort, and inspiration for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, to brighten your day, lighten your load, and bring some holiday joy right to your computer!
