On caregivers, faith, family, and writing…

You are serving Christ

Caregiving is often a lonely and thankless job. While a caregiver is sometimes left without help or support, he or she suffers no shortage of critics who are more than willing to point out how the job could be done better. In those frustrating moments, it would be all to easy to lash out and say, “If you think you can do a better job, I’ll pack Grandma’s things and bring her to your house this afternoon.” However, the Apostle Paul reminds us who we’re really working for–not for those critics or even for our loved one. Instead, we are working for the Lord, and He will give you the love and grace you need just when you need it the most.

Blessings,

Linda

  1. What a wonderful reminder…but can I please still offer to pack mom’s things and drop her off at my friends who “know better”? 🙂
