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!

My Hope For America

https://wouldyoudoitforone.wordpress.com/2022/06/11/my-hope-for-america/

As we met this Friday at Life Care Center the news continues to be filled with mass shootings, the January 6th fiasco and the war in Ukraine. There aren’t a lot of happy stories out there, and yet as we sang you can hear both the unfaltering faith and hope for our nation. I pray you would be blessed as you listen, not to the professional quality of the recording but the sound of voices who still ask God to bless America with His grace from sea to shining sea!

This post originated on my other blog, Walking With Lambs. That site is created as a forum and a place of refreshing for those of the long term care community. I will continue reposting from there for a while longer, but if you would like to join us and comment respond or contribute please subscribe there. Have a blessed weekend all!

Master There’s Still More

This is Easter Sunday – the day that we Christians base our entire faith upon. Some of us are having some big dinners together with family and the scene in Bethany, where they were honoring Jesus with a feast is very much like that. John’s gospel tells us that his disciples and closest friends were all there. Everyone was talking and enjoying the great food when Mary quietly entered. At first no one noticed her, but then she took an alabaster jar filled with perfumed oil, broke it open and began to pour the oil on the head of Jesus. The Bible says that fragrance filled the air and one by one people fell silent and turned their heads to see what was going on. John tells us that Mary anointed the feet of Jesus while in Matthew says she poured it on His head. In this song which I wrote for an Easter play a few years ago I imagine that she did both, because after pouring some on the head of Jesus, she saw that she still had more. Do you still have more for the Master this Easter? It doesn’t matter what others say or think. he is quietly waiting for us to share all we have, even if it seems a waste to others. Not one drop of the fragrance of our worship will be too much for Him!

If you would like to use my song, please just let me know. I will be glad to send you song sheets and give permission to use it without charge. You can contact me at Revpete51@gmail.com – God bless and Happy Easter all!
