Alzheimer’s and Mom

It has been just two years since my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, and she does not know me anymore. Her disease keeps her in perpetual motion, walking and “cleaning” continuously in the nursing facility where she resides. A couple of the Faith Bible Church deacons visited her recently and read Scripture with her. She was completing the verses as they read them. What a joy for me to hear that! Her life has not been easy here on earth. Her father died when she was twelve, and her mother withdrew into emotional immobility. As I was a child my parents were in a bad car accident, and she spent years in continual pain. She outlived two husbands. It is so encouraging that the one thing that she can recall is God’s Word!

Psalm 119.11.2

    I have prayed for you regarding your Mom since you visited. I’ve heard a song on the radio station that is called “she still remembers Jesus”. I’ve wanted to share this with you for a while and not I have the opportunity. What a delightful lady she was and I have always treasured her friendship. But heaven is a wonderful Hope that we have when all this will be over and Jesus with His Grace and Love will give us a new body. Praise the Lord. It’s what helps me with missing Ken and others.Praying for you because this must be a hard time for you too.
