Every one of us have/has had parents. I have an 89 year old father who has not come to total dependence on me, thank God. As I watch him having difficulty remembering, clumsily feeding himself, hard of hearing, I think to myself.. will I be like that one day?
We could not choose our parents and the Lord chose them for us. They also could not choose us but gave of their best, no matter what. Even if they gave you away, it was for your best interest. Now in their senior years, we should thank God for them and remember them and bless them for all they have been to us. Some say not much but they were everything you had. So come on thank God and thank them for being there for you when you needed them directly or through their surrogates in your childhood. View the following and remember them and let them know that you remember them. Pick up that phone, go visit, have tea or coffee… just keep in touch.. God’s blessing be yours.
May the Lord help us treat them with love and respect till the Lord takes them home and if they do not know our loving heavenly Father, is it not time you shared with them the love of God for them? Do so as time is short for them and win them to the Lord.
