Old Time Revival In Memory Care

Here is a peek into our fun singing session yesterday. I hope it puts a smile on your face and an attitude of praise in your heart no matter what you are facing this morning. I’ll continue reposting from my other blog “Walking With Lambs” for a While. But if you are interested in or would like to be involved in Nursing Home Ministry I suggest that you follow over on that site so we can become a network of people committed to the long term care community.

Walking With Lambs

Clap your hands, all peoples!
    Shout to God with loud songs of joy! Psalm 47:1 ESV

If you think we only sing some old slow hymns at our Thursday morning meeting, then you have never joined us. If we did that half my folks would fall asleep! So, I invite you to join us for this medley which I titled, “Country Hoedown at Sunshine Home. Get ready to clap, maybe stomp your feet and please feel free to sing along!

Love Like an Ocean

We are struggling a bit here with my wife being sick the last several days. She went for Covid testing and was negative but still is not feeling well and we have not been out much. This session was recorded a few weeks ago and gives you not just the music but a bit of what real ministry is like at nursing home. We have people walking through, folks coming in late (remember they are in wheelchairs). Taking the time to interrupt what we are doing and greeting them by name helps us remember that we are family and then we can worship together like a real family! I hope you enjoy this rendition of Peace Like a River and that God would pour out His blessings in your life today!

The old stories from the Bible are made new when we put our faith in God, and He gives us His Peace like a River!

A Closer Look at Martha and the Old Rugged Cross

 Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. John 11:21

Most people have loved Mary because of her humility and worship, but the Bible tells us that Jesus also loved Martha. I think of Martha as the female version of Peter. She was always saying something! But aren’t you secretly glad that Martha said all those things and asked all the questions that the rest of us were too afraid to voice? Today’s video takes a deeper dive into Martha’s cry for help and how we need that in our lives. This also will give those who follow this blog a peek into our nursing home outreach. I am so thankful that other volunteers have come alongside to help so that we were able to serve communion this Friday. Also included is the classic hymn, “The Old Rugged Cross”. If you would like to know more about nursing home ministry, why not follow our YouTube channel? I hope that you have a blessed weekend!
