While being seen by my Cardiologist a couple of months back he starts in telling me what I need to eat..., and not eat..., and what lifestyle I should lead and what to stay away from such as, the ills of tobacco, fried foods, etc., only to finally bring to a conclusion of his instructional time by mentioning I should be concerned about my "Quality of Life" as I grow older. ...this doctor of mine is a couple three years older than me making him probably about 73. I couldn't resist asking him if he's ever visited a Nursing Home. I was shocked at his answer when he honestly replied that, "No, I've never been to one". I responded by telling him he should visit one and then talk to me about the Quality of Life. I've sense found another doctor. I was shocked. How many of you have visited a Nursing Home? Wow..., talk about a mission field. Elderly people are pushed into those cubicles and while the owners of said home are really only interested in counting their money those cast away family members are stuck counting the days until they die. Many of these Nursing Home INMATES would give anything to attend a church service. They are at the end of their lives and desperate. Nobody wants them around anymore and often, no one from their family even takes the time to visit. Have you a bus ministry? If so use it. Bring those who "can and will" under the gospel before it's too late for them. If you haven't visited a Nursing Home (ever) just go one time and witness first hand the hopelessness these people face on a daily basis and remember this, you might find yourself in the same situation some day real soon. Go.
