Working at the care home

I've been fortunate in the summer job hunting and have managed to find work at a care home that employed me last summer. I enjoyed working there last year and learnt a great deal - thanks to the chefs I can now do basic cookery! The residents there gave me much to think about, including how conditions such as dementia could affect a Christian's belief in God/Jesus and decision or even ability to live as a follower of Christ.

This morning I went to the wrong building to start off with; thankfully a new colleague drove me to the right place. My first day wasn't too hectic - highlight has to be one of the residents praising the Lord that she was allowed to have a piece of birthday cake. The shifts are quite long and tiring, but offer me many opportunities to honour God through humbling myself, working hard and serving others!

Try something new today!

Weeeell the end of exams came, so I thought what the heck - lets try something new today! So I did. My chin is now seeing light after seven years of darkness (and my head after 21 years...). Am intrigued to see what the comments will be!

The other new thing I've tried is to read about Jesus' life through Luke. I'd never read it before and am discovering lots of things about Jesus - I challenge you to do the same! Luke part 1, part 2, part 3 . In the words Dr Pepper "what's the worst that could happen"! Lol, at the very least it'll be useful for pub quizzes.

Ps If anyone would like a nice gold leaf covered bible for free (courtesy of the Gideons) please let me know, and I will gladly pass one on to you. My email is Aaron.Poppleton@gmail.com. Am happy to do postal orders too.
