So...Worship For Caregivers.
Caregivers gotta worship. They really, really need to attend church, and as much as possible be involved in the church community.
- Caregiving's too much for any mortal; God's got bigger shoulders. Let Him take the load when you can't
- It's all too easy to get wrapped up in the despairing now of caregiving. Worship offers perspective, and hope.
- A spiritual community offers resources in depth (usually, if it's a good one) that can give you everything from moral support to offers of competent and sincere respite care. Someone dropping by with a meal after a really bad day can be such a boost!
And my five minutes are up.
