Living life with a deep and longing desire to be with the Holy Trinity in heaven (when God's purpose for us here is complete) helps keep us grounded in the turmoil life on earth inevitably sends our way.
Let us pray for the elderly who are confined to their homes or in convalescent centers. Let us pray they have assurance God has them in this season of their lives for a purpose, even if it is as simple as showing kindness to their caretakers.
If you have time and feel the good Lord directing you, stop by an elder-care home and bring a smile to the forgotten ones in our midst.
