National Caregivers Month

November is National Family Caregivers Month

May we give thanks to those who care and comfort their family members and close friends who are sick, homebound, chronically ill, and/or grieving loss. May we hold them close in our hearts.

A Prayer for the Caregiver

Unknown and often unnoticed,

you are a hero nonetheless.

For your love, sacrificial, is God at His best.

You walk by faith in the darkness

of the great unknown,

and your courage, even in weakness,

gives life to your beloved.

You hold shaking hands

and provide the ultimate care:

Your presence, the knowing,

that you are simply there.

You rise to face the giant

of disease and despair.

It is our finest hour,

though you may be unaware.

You are resilient, amazing,

and beauty unexcelled,

You are the caregiver

and you have done well!
