Since posting on Thursday about the ladies making and giving out Easter cards at the Sunshine Memory Wing, three ladies came today to Life Care Center. I was so excited to have helpers that I put them right to work! So, this morning they not only helped to sing hymns and give out Easter cards they also to the time to serve communion. If you get communion every time you go to church like we do, you may think that is not a big deal. But at a nursing home with covid protocols in place as well as the special needs of residents it is a tremendous blessing! The cups are each individually sealed with a separate layer for the wafer and are difficult to open. (You might be nodding your head in agreement if you have used these!) To serve just the 15-20 residents who came today took the three ladies 10 minutes of our 30-minute meeting time. But no one cared that it took a while and as you can see the folks were all smiles! So just remember that you may not realize the value of small things you do for others on this side of heaven. But as Mother Teresa says, “Do them anyway!”
And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded. Matthew 10:42 NLT

I love that you were able to share communion with the folks at the care center today!
Yes it has been 3 months or more. Since the Omicron variant they reverted to a very strict protocol and it took a while to get both the supplies of the individual servers and the extra volunteers to open them(using latex gloves!) It was an amazing blessing.
God is so honored and happy with this service you give to those He loves. May He richly bless each of you!
It has been a privilege and one of the greatest blessings to serve. In this chapter of life, I am praying for more people to get involved because it is His work and not mine.
Such a good reminder of what has been lost to those in care these two years. And, oh, what celebration to share in communion!
