Henry L.
My dear father

My dear father, whom Alzheimer has taken its toll on him. Now, exhausted and sick, rejecting food and water, obliged to have a feeding tube, we keep our Faith in Jesus Christ to help us through this difficult time.

One night a man had a dream that he was walking along the beach with the LORD.

Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.
For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the LORD.

He noticed that many times at the very lowest and saddest moments along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.

This really bothered him and he
questioned the LORD about it:

"LORD, you said that once I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way.
But I have noticed that at times, there is only one set of footprints. I don't understand why."

The LORD replied:

"My son, my precious child, I love you and I would never leave you.
During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

To Henry's child: My father passed away not so long ago, with Parkinson's, which carried with it many of the same mental issues as does Alzheimer's. I feel for you, and your family. Your dad is still your wonderful dad, and his time on earth gains great things for him in heaven, as a lesson in strength to all around him, as a lesson of faith for everyone. I gave the below prayer, which i came across on the web, to my mother to help her too, deal with the times when my dad was towards the end, difficult times, and for each of us even today. Bless you, keep faith, and keep loving.

Prayer for Comfort and Hope

Grant unto us, Almighty God, in all time of sore distress,
the comfort of the forgiveness of our sins.
In time of darkness give us blessed hope,
in time of sickness of body give us quiet courage;
and when the heart is bowed down, and the soul is very heavy,
and life is a burden, and pleasure a weariness,
and the sun is too bright, and life too mirthful,
then may that Spirit, the Spirit of the Comforter, come upon us,
and after our darkness may there be the clear shining of the heavenly light;
that so, being uplifted again by Thy mercy,
we may pass on through this our mortal life
with quiet courage, patient hope, and unshaken trust,
hoping through Thy loving-kindness and tender mercy
to be delivered from death into the large life of the eternal years.
Hear us of Thy mercy, through Jesus Christ our Lord – Amen.
