We are making a swap of our March and April serve projects. This month we will be focusing on serving the elderly. We have scheduled a visit to Wittenburg Lutheran Village, in Crown Point, Wednesday March 26 at 11am. We will be visiting on the dementia unit. We would like to present residents with a card of encouragement made by you and your children. That's right it's home work time! Cards can be brought to our March 11 meeting. Even if you can't make the visit please take some time this week and make a few cards with your kiddos. On March 26 we would like to give the cards and sing a song or two to the residents along with sharing a few smiles and laughs. I hope you can join us! This is very near and dear to my heart as I used to work with seniors. One of my biggest passions is working with seniors especially those who have dementia or alzheimers. They have such a special story to tell and one little comment from you can spike a great memory for them. There's many times I am surrounded by people and yet feel alone. For some they are alone I hope we can spread some joy and cheer! Feel free to write any special note, verse or quote. One of my favorite quotes is:
In the happy moments, praise God.
In difficult moments seek God.
In the quiet moments trust God.
In every moment thank God.
Let's also take this month and set some new goals for the elderly in our own lives. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles ect. May we find new ways to connect with and serve them.
Children’s children are a crown to the aged, and parents are the pride of their children. Proverbs 17:6
