Do not cast me away.....

....when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone. ~ Psalm 71:9

We're hearing a lot these days about "health care reform". I'm not a political person...I never have been...never was interested one bit in politics...and, am very sorry to admit....didn't even vote for years

(yes, I matured and realized how important it is!).

I keep hearing how this new health care plan that our President wants to implement will just pretty much cast us aside as we grow older. He's got so many people helping him try to get this plan passed...but it's also met with a lot of opposition. I read that he met with AARP officials to reassure them that it's not his intention to leave us out as we get older!!!
Whether it is, or probably yet to be seen.

For my enemies speak against me; those who wait to kill me conspire together. ~ Psalm 71:10

All of this debate got me to thinking about Dr. Kevorkian....remember him? He was the doctor who would fly all the way across the country to give drugs to someone who had a terminal illness to "put them out of their misery", so to speak....and didn't consider what he was doing "murder".

Deliver me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of evil and cruel men. ~ Psalm 71:4

I have a sweet, precious Mamaw still living who just turned NINETY-EIGHT. I would never want to think that just because she's aged would mean she wouldn't always get the best care possible.

There's so much in the news about nursing home abuse. Now, don't get me wrong...there are people in nursing homes, or assisted living centers, who get the best of care from loving, tender-hearted, precious caregivers who think of their profession as their "calling". But...sometimes....there are those who take advantage of people just because they're elderly and aren't able to defend themselves.

“Stand up in the presence of the elderly, and show respect for the aged. Fear your God. I am the Lord. ~ Leviticus 19:32

I know it seems that the world we live in is just getting worse and worse....but we have to realize that's what every single generation before us has thought. I can't even begin to imagine what's in store for our grandsons when they reach our age. But....I hold onto the fact that God is so very good...and He's still on His throne...and...whether anybody wants to admit it...

But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. ~ Psalm 71:14

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!


  1. This does really concern me for our children and grandchildren.

  2. My dad has done a lot of lobbing for political agendas and has been at the front lines of getting things stopped. Now he's concern for the health care stuff. Mom has to get some kind of shots that run about $200. Well because of this mess, the Dr's now tell them they can't give those shots and have to give these other kind that run $2000. I know God is in control and all the signs foretell of things getting worse before His amazing return. He'll take care of us the Believers just like He takes care of His creation the earth and animals. But Satan is roaming and using people to try and get his way and make us suffer. As long as we have Jesus, spiritually we won't suffer but physically may be a different story. That's why I plan on trying to build my immune system and maybe start some easy work outs to hopefully take care of self physically as much as HE allows. Do wish He would return soon!!!!! At least I can hope and dream of that until that day!!!!


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
