GETTING OLD

O Lord, we moved to this retirement home,
as my husband says,
“for our three stages of decay.”
Here they call it “continuous care:
independent living, assisted living, and nursing care.”
Whatever we call it, we look forward
to being with you in new ways.
Give us courage, Lord.
Do not let us use physical decline
as an excuse for being grouchy and difficult.
Rather let us be conduits
for your Spirit of Love.

John 15:12
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”

Hymn:  Stand By Me
his is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.”foryour Srd.
Do not let physical decline
