Mission

My mission is summed up by the words of Matthew 25:34-40 (ESV)

34 Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,

36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’

37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?

38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?

39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’

40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

A Tribute to Bailey

Bailey

Bailey was a very special dog, who touched the lives of so many seniors through her unique, sweet, intelligent, and caring personality. She was a beautiful dog, always happy to be brightening the day of the elderly.

Now that Bailey has gone to rest, Bernadette the little toy poodle puppy is learning to care for the elderly. As a young pup, Bernadette was privileged to have had Bailey for her mentor for four special months. With this privilege it makes sense that Bernadette will carry on with the good work Bailey did, bringing happiness to seniors and others with special needs for years to come.

The Lamb

Little lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
Gave thee life, and bid thee feed
By the stream and o’er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, woolly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice?
Little lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?

Little lamb, I’ll tell thee,
Little lamb, I’ll tell thee:
He is called by thy name,
For He calls Himself a lamb.
He is meek, and He is mild;
He became a little child.
I a child, and thou a lamb,
We are called by His name.
Little lamb, God bless thee!
Little lamb, God bless thee!

William Blake, 1789
