A leson learned today.

It is kind of amazing when you think how a 99 year old lady can stop and make you think. But that is what happened to me today.
I was talking to one of our residents who was talking about the death of her husband and also a daughter. She had said how she was angry and did not want to be attending church. It was around Christmas and she remarked how she hated hearing Merry Christmas from people. She said what wa Merry about it after all she waw missing loved ones.
She went on to tell me how she made her self go to church that Sunday and that God truely spoke to her that day. She said the minister was praying and as he was she felt a presence of an Angel sitting next to her. She said she could smell the perfume.she did not say what the pastor was praying but she told me feeling the presence of that Angel she knew everything was going to be all right.
If you think about it how often is it true. We may not want to go worship or be in church for some eason but we make our self go.(Or God gives us an extra push). But as we sit there something some how God speaks to us through the minister.I know I've felt that the minister is looking right at me and speaking directly to me.Talk about squirming in the pew.I wanted to stand up and say OK you made your point!!!! I get it!!!!! It is amazing when we turn it over to God what a burden is lifted off of our chests, and how we know things will be OK.
I am so thankful to be able to take it to the Lord in prayer.He has been there for me always and I have had many struggles but without him at my side and the prayer and support of others I may not be here today.Never never be afraid to ask for prayer.
