In Their Shoes

Have you ever walked in their shoes... 
   the ones that are confined to a care facility and cannot worship corporately at church?


I don't understand completely what it is like to be in their shoes, but do understand the desire that some have to sing hymns, listen to godly music and hear the Word despite their physical needs.


It was a delight to see the ones gather for worship at the care home this week.  It was not the same home that we visited last Sunday, so we got to meet a different set of beautiful people.


Some dressed smartly, others in their housecoats, each came specifically to this room with a purpose.


We also brought a CBF student with us who loves the older generation.


One tried the guitar as his oxygen flow quietly helped him breathe.  Calling upon his skills of banjo and fiddle playing from his past, he did quite well.


Others were lost in their own thoughts.
                I wonder where her shoes have been?


"...Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, 
you have done it unto me. "
Matt 25:40

  1. I have been blessed by your last two posts about ministering to those who are in long term care facilities. Besides your love for your university kids, you are showing your love and the love of Christ to these lovely older folks also. Keep doing what you are doing--and may the Lord give you strength each day!

  2. Many blessings to you as you minister to those that we might so easily overlook. The compassion and love of Christ are evident in the words you have written here. :)

  3. A neat way to focus on those whose "shoes" are usually overlooked. Very nice photos sis! You should take a photo of your feet because "Beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!" Rom. 10:15
