One of the highlights of our week is to go the care home next door to our church. We go once or twice a week depending on Raymond's schedule. Every time we do go I always enter the cafeteria with the greeting, "Good morning!". I get several responses from several people; but the most reliable and consistent one is from a gentleman who is about 50 years old and in a wheelchair. He never misses a reading (I read about four chapters from the Bible). Every time I have been there he has greeted me with, " Good morning, I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God!" It never fails, and he doesn't whisper it either! I always say Amen! then continue with the mornings activities. Then yesterday it dawned on me...I don't believe I have ever heard that man say anything else. I wonder how much he talks to others in the home or even his caretakers. If I should ever be in his situation I hope that I am sane enough to declare as he does that I do believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God...even if that is the only thing I can say.
Until next time,
