Overview

Endorsements:
""This is a book of mature wisdom--straightforward, lucid, inspiring. Richard Morgan has grasped two essential realities: that people live as well as die in nursing homes and that God meets people here with unyielding love.""
--Henry C. Simmons, former Director of Center on Aging, Union Presbyterian Seminary

""Dick Morgan has creatively and insightfully reflected the struggles of aging as lived in the never failing presence of God. The reader is provided an image of the human spirit strengthened by God to give life perspective and purpose, even when the body becomes more frail. The Scripture readings, devotions, and prayers will resonate with each caregiver, care receiver, and family member as they face together the adventures and challenges of a rich new phase of life.""
--W. Ray Inscoe, Director of Pastoral Care, Westminster Canterbury, Richmond, VA

""As a chaplain in a long care facility, I often discover that residents are without devotional reading to nourish their faith. This work will be a source of inspiration and comfort to older people who are struggling with what meaning their life has in a nursing home, when 'someone else takes [them] where they do not want to go.' It makes them aware that God still has a plan for their lives.""
--Philip Jamison, Chaplain, Redstone Highlands, North Huntingdon, PA
