A faithful man will abound with blessings. Proverbs 28:20 New King James Version
In the precious article I discussed The Gentle Persuasive Approach course I took. Today I will give examples of how it helped me interact with seniors that I visit at a local seniors home.
Yesterday I prayed for the Lord to bless me in my service to Him while doing volunteer work at a seniors home. We share an hour together singing Christian hymns on Sunday.
A resident was irritated and confused and I gently got him back to his room. He could have gotten violent.
I shared a video of traditional Korean songs I downloaded with an activity lady that works with her. She does not speak English and nobody speaks Korean.
There is a re resident who never talks that I got to sing hymns with me during the service.
I comforted an ailing woman who was a little depressed (tis the season) and bed ridden.
I brought out two residents in the final stages of Alzheimer’s Disease to listen to the hymns which they really enjoyed. Most times they refuse to leave their room.
The ice storm that threatened our area held off until I got home.
I did not lose my temper with mom watching TV (I hate the idiot box) while I had to break into the washroom. Mom closed the door behind her and for the first time in forty years it locked. I tried unsuccessfully to climb through the window to open the door but because of the type of window it would not open wide enough. I had to get a chisel and break the door knob without breaking the door it get it open.
I do not for one moment believe any of this was neither by chance nor by just my skills but were all a blessing from our Father in Heaven.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emanah (God is faithful) for so richly blessing me this day in order to bring glory and honour to Your most beautiful name. I extol You in the name of He who empowered His faithful disciples to be a blessing to others Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
