Family Caring for Family – A Caregiver’s Prayer

Caring for a dying loved one

Takes such a heavy toll

On one’s mind, body, and yes, on one’s very soul

Some days are harder than others may be

Each day a question, wondering when God will set our loved one free

So surreal, so exhausting, like swimming against the tides in the sea

But turning to God helps ease the drain

In one’s heart, in one’s soul, and yes, in one’s tired and sleep-deprived brain

So know God is there every day and every night

(S)He may be unseen, but (S)He is there nonetheless, with His /Her loving light

Know that (S)He hears your prayers in the dark

Know that (S)He can be your igniter, your spirit spark

To help you manage those hard, difficult days

Shining upon you love, strength and courageous rays

Because what you are doing each and every day

Helping your loved one join Him in heaven’s cumulus displays

Means you’re a priceless human being, an amazing human gift

So keep on trucking. God is with you always giving you an unseen spiritual lift.
