Bringing People Into The Caring Community Of Christ
July 28, 2014 - "Treasured Memories" Edition
Good morning, everyone! Our daughters are on vacation in BC with Terry's parents this week and next week. What a great opportunity for them to experience some special times with their 89 and 83 year old grandparents (as well as numerous cousins/aunts/uncles) that they can remember and treasure forever.
As we get older (yes, I'm up a year too now!), we realize how fleeting life truly is, and are more aware that life can change or even terminate at any moment. My dear mom passed away seven years ago, and my sweet dad has been in long-term care for more than two years. My dad who was so full of vitality and strength is lying in a nursing home bed, frail, weary, and waiting for his call to heaven. It breaks my heart to see him this way, but I know God will, at the right time, release Dad into his healing and the launching of his brand new life.
This coming weekend, Terry and I are planning to attend a Swanson family reunion in Calgary. I am so grateful for my heritage and thankful for many fond memories with my family. Let's be intentional about spending quality time with those around us (family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, and even strangers) and showing them the love of God.
"We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us towards that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love." (I Corinthians 13:12-13)
