Prayer For A Nursing-Home Grandma
"My purpose is to give life in all
its fullness." (John 10:10 NLT)
Once again footfalls from family members
travel well-worn halls, past wheel-chairs
lined against walls, past aged cheeks
and haunting eyes; not so many years ago
grandma baby-sat me, danced at my
graduation, and reminded me to recite
daily prayers. Her life is a garden
of joyful noise; she is my scented rose.
Sometimes I wish it was more the way it
was. Not to be since this is her new home.
During our visit we listen, as her own
memories come whispering. God love her.
