If you are caring for a loved one or friend, some day that will end. It may end with your loved one being cured of his or her disease. It may also end in the death of that loved one. When this happens it will begin a process of picking up the pieces of your life and finding new purpose in your life. This is something we do not wish to talk about, but it is often a part of the care-giving process. Hence, we need to discuss it.
Today I would like to link to an article in the recent October/ November Guideposts magazine. It features a a man who after 76 years of marriage lost his wife to Alzheimer's. It also touchingly portrays his ability to give all his grief and emotions to the Lord. Although he struggled at first after his wife's death, he seemed to eventually have found a place of peace. When his granddaughter asked him about the reason for the changes he said, "I give it all up to God. He takes care of me. I just gotta trust Him." Read his story by clicking the link below:
