I don’t want to…..but, I do it anyways.

I was feeding Jackie some oatmeal at the hospital today. In the recovery room. And I thought about whether I wanted to be doing this. And the short answer is no.

I do not want to be doing anything like this. Not because I don’t love her but because I do. You see, I will be there for her and all those that I love. I just wish she didn’t need this type of care. It pains me to watch anyone suffer least of all my wife. So if I can help her I will. I just don’t want her to be in this position.

I feel this way about the community we serve. I wish we were not needed. I wish there were no homeless people needing shelter. No hungry people needing food. No kids needing care. But there are. So we serve others. We provide a place where they matter.

I don’t have to help, I get to help.

God loves me, God Loves you. And so do I.

  1. I hope all went well today. There were many times during my marriage I didn’t know if I was the caregiver or the wife. I thank the lord he found me peace to care for Den until he passed away. God bless you both today and always!
