This year we are supporting one of our favorite nurses as she works in the skilled Nursing Unit at our local Hospital Most of these patients are there for a month or more and have no family to bring them the extras they might need.
We are going to put together “Baskets of Fun!” We will put together baskets with simple items to meet their needs and give them some encouragement; lip balm, lotion, comb/brush, deck of cards, crossword or word puzzles, blank cards, to name a few.
John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
We try and carry this throughout the year, but Christmas is especially hard on those spending it in the hospital.
