I opened the show with a hymn from my CD, Songs for the Caregiver ...and shared i offered the message of this hymn to a listener struggling to care for the parents who abused her.

A line from the hymn:  There is a place of quiet rest, near to the heart of God. A place where sin cannot molest ...near to the heart of God.

And love of America for this is caregiver. This is Roseburg. This is show you as a family caregiver. Those of you who are putting yourself knowingly and voluntarily between the vulnerable love one.

And even worse disaster home schooled on how you stand strong her, you rest. Are you staying healthy while you take care of someone who is not the show is all about. 888-589-8840 888-589-8843 will be a part of the show. Also, you follow along and hopefully caregiver.calm website or our street, we stream the show live.

When we do it here on American family radio or Facebook page. Hopefully caregiver on Facebook. So sometimes I have a love-hate relationship with Facebook when they get it wrong or something goes squarely so we we keep going back with optimism that we can get it right so you will follow hope for the caregiver.com. I like to start off with a him because I feel like that we have lost something as a country and those views the show regularly know that this is important to what we do here. The show was to take these films and also those he was rightly know how important hymns are to you because you've expressed this to more and more and we got away from him, which has a amazing wealth of things that can help us as caregivers in the reason I do this because some of these hymns are so will structured musically and text wise that when we are going through the craziness of our life as caregivers, we can recall may be just one line 1 Frese little melody to help us reorient ourselves as we get blown off course on any given day as a caregiver, and this one today is one that was this incredibly meaningful to me. It was it was is the first song on my CD and I put this out themselves for the caregiver and I love this. I've been playing it for a lifetime.

But there's a reason I did this because I shared the song somebody called me this week that we have phone call go through some pretty rough times and will talk about that just a minute but I will set the table you with this particular him so I will walk over here to the caregiver keyboard and just to let you know that I cannot play this in the key of D flat. Some people get all worked up about. But I put a capo on the piano now, but I love the CMC.

If you notice him him him him him him him him him him him him him him him him him him him him hello it is a great human. I shared this with the woman who called me. She resets me a text we have a phone conversation this week is going through a very difficult time and I want to explain something on the front in here this show is never meant to be a commentary on the political world and everything else the show was meant to sit down either at the kitchen table with a fellow caregiver or at the piano with a fellow caregiver and help us calm down a little bit so that we can make better decisions.

I don't have any pretext of trying to be anything other than what I am is just a caregiver who has watched someone suffer for 35 years and has lived to play a song about it, has lived to laugh about it, has lived to rejoice about it is live to live through it.

And sometimes we we have a a lot of fun on here with get.

I love comedy more than most and frustrated standup comedian. But I also understand the journey of tears that so many caregivers have and I want to speak to that with clarity in a way that a fellow caregivers understates if you're not a caregiver.

If you're not walking through anything like that, you're probably not get a lot of the show. That's okay because I know the audience that is struggling that wants to be able to have some kind of solid ground. Is there watching somebody they love spiral and and suffer and struggle and act out and in all the things that go on with watching somebody with a chronic impairment. Whether it's chronic pain, whether it's autism, whether it's Alzheimer's, whether it's addiction it there so many different kinds of chronic impairments, but there's always a caregiver.

How do you help that caregiver. What use states that caregiver to to speak to them in the midst of their distress and that brings me to a bubble if you know that some 888-589-8840 888-589-8840 that brings you to let her get from woman after the show last week and she's going through a brutal journey of caring for both parents with Alzheimer's. But she was sexually molested by her father and and she intimated her mother and now she's taking care of with Alzheimer's and these are painful realities and edits more common than you realize you have the child I was grown up. That is been abused by parents, whether sexually, verbally or physically, or all three. And they're in a position where they're taking care of this aging love one with unresolved issues and and deep deep wounds and their struggling with this journey and I encounter this sadly all too regularly and I know that when.when I speak this and I'm not a counselor I'm not a trained mental health professional. I'm not a pastor I have great here, but I'm not a preacher and I I'd know that I have to be very careful in what I say and what I what I speak into the situations and all I can do is point people to the Savior. I look at this. My job here on the show is very akin to the paramedics who helped save my wife when she was laying bleeding by the side of the road back in 1983 I wasn't there. I didn't know her.

At the time I met her cup couple years later and they did not. I've heard all the stores with affect.

Some came to visit her in the hospital later many times later, but they didn't try to tell her how to live her life. They didn't shame her from what being out there the road. What I would you do what was met with you. This is middle the date she fell asleep at the wheels and tires study and everything else and that she just drove off the road and they just kept saying over and over to hang on to get you to help you were here were here to show that's what the song is about 80 5898. This is the show the family caregiver. That is, my wife said he'll give you hope for your sorrow. Talk about today. This is a woman who understands that as she is facing a yet another very difficult journey for her surgically speaking that I can Canada be your 81st and this is what she sings and she's singing this to you in choosing this to me and we can draw strength from that because that's that's how we do that we comfort one another with the same comfort that we ourselves have been comforted by the God of all comfort and today I wanted this song to play for you in the last segment.

If you know it. 888-589-8840 888-5898 40 it was the song that came to mind when I'm talking to this woman who reached out to me who was struggling so mightily take taking care of her parents.

For with Alzheimer's and she was sexually abused and by these parents and that she's taking care of and you can't you can't counter somebody with that level of trauma and just say what God loves you and pat him on the back and sit them on and there there now. None of this is this is a gaping devastating series of ones this will mistake and now she's taking care of these people and so I quoted the lyrics from the see of this is probably the hips. Because these hymns have wrestled with these very painful things input in way that we can understand and recall to Armand you'll in limitations. Jeremiah the prophet was saying.

I remember the wormwood and the gall you could just yield the visceral angst and and heartache that Jeremiah was feeling it one point he said that he had to prophesy because it was too painful for him not to, but it was easy was just he was called the weeping prophet, but he sits in the limitation go back and read in chapter 3 to 7 of the wormwood and the gall. When these are very visceral words. He said, but this I recall the mind and therefore I have hope and he anchored himself in Scripture. Great is thy faithfulness before we get to him from, and so when we have these these moments of our lives and and then in these moments may last a long time. There is a point where we have to anchor ourselves in something or be anchored in something that will will help us back to the highway if you will.

When we get so bogged down and you think about those paramedics rescuing Gracie. There have that they get to use the they had it took about an hour and have to extracted from the car. Her legs were crushed and pushed so that her feet were over her shoulders and she's bleeding out that that the card caught on fire and and it was it was very very it what it was just as horrific wreck and to each one of these paramedics.

They all said the same thing to. We have the report of annual hang on what to get you to safety. Hang on, were here were here were here hang out. The lingo don't give up, do we say that to each other as believers when you're going through what you're going through is that something you regularly hear from believers. Hang on hang on is here to get to safety or do you here just go live Hallmark card type of catchphrases that we use in the church when I started doing the show, I knew that we had to do more on the show, and when I speak to people privately after the show, I knew that I cannot just that I want to receive. Things like that. I want to hear people say that to me platitudes and and pablum people offer. Well, God sovereign patch on the back and send you the Odyssey has a plan for Gracie.

She wouldn't be here.

I want to hear that.

I bet you don't either. I need to be anchored in something that's going to to still my soul and and help me make better decisions that this process a deed to be directed to safety.

Just like you'd so that's what I did these hymns and that's why did this particular him and if you know it.

I want you to call me and tell me about it and tell me what's important to you. 888-589-8840 those you missed it here just the course of action under the first lot because that's where you hear the title of you know that 1-888-589-8840 wouldn't go to the phone lines right now, this is Kelly in Arkansas, Kelly, good morning.

I AM STAINING WITH HELP THIS SHOW AS A FAMILY CAREGIVER ARE GLAD TO HAVE 89 8840 SOFTLY GRACE IN TEXAS.

WE ARE ABOUT THAT GRACE. THE LAST THOUGHT IS YOU KNOW YOU LIVE A WORLD AWAY FROM YOUR MOTHER AND I KNOW THIS IS A VERY TROUBLING SITUATION YOU GOT SIBLINGS WHO WERE NOT CARING FOR HER IN THE WAY THAT YOU WOULD LIKE AND YOU'RE NOT ABLE TO DO THINGS YOU GOTTA WORK HERE YOU CABLE HERE YOU GET MARRIED YOU CAME OVER HERE AND YOU'VE RAISED YOUR CHILDREN NOW, AND THE DECISION POINT YOU HAVE TO MAKE IS OKAY LIKE TO GO BACK TO NIGERIA AND TAKE CARE OF MY MOTHER MYSELF AND MY GOING TO COORDINATE WITH SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP HER IN MY STEAD AND MY GOING TO CONFRONT MY SIBLINGS. IF THEY'RE UNWILLING TO DO IT AND IF THEY'RE UNABLE TO DO IT IN MY GOING TO PROVIDE RESOURCES FOR THEM AND THAT THOSE OF THE DECISION POINT YOU HAVE TO MAKE. THEY'RE NOT EASY.

NONE OF THEM ARE EASY DECISIONS AND I AND I I HURT WITH YOU ON THAT AND I'M SORRY THAT YOU'RE IN THE SITUATION WHERE THIS IS OCCURRING, BUT YOU YOU GOT THE BEST SHOT AT MAKING THE RIGHT AND HELP WITH THE HEALTHY TO SIT ON. OTHERS ARE RIGHT OR WRONG DECISION, BUT I THINK THERE'S A HEALTHIER PATH FOR YOU THROUGH THIS, BUT IT STARTS WITH YOU SETTLING DOWN AGAIN RECOGNIZING YOUR NAME IS GRACE, NOT GUILT AND LETTING GO OF THAT AND UNDERSTAND. OKAY, HERE'S WHERE I AM NOW. WHAT IS THE WAS THE PATH FORWARD AND YOU CAN SIT DOWN HERE WITH YOUR PASTOR INCIDENT WITH THE COUNSELOR SOMEBODY AND HELP SORT THIS THROUGH. LOOK AT YOUR RESOURCES. SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP YOUR MOTHER FROM A DISTANCE THEY HELP YOUR SIBLINGS TAKE CARE OF YOUR MOTHER FROM A DISTANCE. COORDINATE WITH PEOPLE THAT YOU KNOW THEY'RE IN NIGERIA WHO CAN HELP HER OR YOU CAN MAKE THE DECISION TO GO BACK TO NIGERIA FOR AN EXTENDED AMOUNT OF TIME TO HELP HER. NONE OF THESE ARE TO BE EASY AND SO IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU APPROACH THESE DECISIONS WITH AS MUCH CLARITY AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN TO MAKE A DECISION THAT'S GOING TO BE THE MOST EFFECTIVE FOR YOU AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO TO SPEND WITH YOUR RESOURCES AND SO FORTH.

IN THIS SITUATION. A LOT OF PEOPLE FIND THEMSELVES IN WITH HER CAREGIVING. FROM A DISTANCE WEATHERS ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE WORLD AND NIGERIA OR IF IT'S ACROSS THE COUNTRY OR WHATEVER AND YOU CAN'T JUST UPROOT YOUR JOB AND YOUR FAMILY. EVERYTHING BUT YOUR TORN BETWEEN THESE THESE RESPONSIBILITIES AND THESE OBLIGATIONS THAT YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE AND THESE ARE QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ASKED AND ANSWERED IN YOUR HEART AND THEN YOU MAKE THE DECISION TO THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITIES AND TRUST THAT GOD WILL GIVE YOU THE CLARITY AS YOU MOVE THROUGH THIS. THAT WORD IS A LAMP UNTO MY FEET, NOT A SEARCHLIGHT SO THERE'S NOT GOING TO BE UP HEY DO THIS THIS AND THIS AND THIS AND YOU'LL BE OKAY.

NO, THESE ARE THESE ARE YOUR PAST AND YOU GOING TO HAVE TO SIT DOWN WITH MAYBE SOME GOOD COUNSEL AROUND YOU TO HELP YOU GUIDE YOU AS YOU MAKE YOUR DECISION ON WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT MAY BE A MULTIPART DECISION MAY NOT BE SOMETHING YOU CAN DO THIS FINAL DECISION ONE MOMENT OKAY I'M GOING TO GO BACK TO NIGERIA WELL OKAY THAT'S A BIG DECISION SO THAT YOU CAN MAKE TO DO THIS IN STAGES OR PHASES GO BACK AND GET TO REMEMBER WHAT YOUR NAME IS YOUR NAME IS GRACE AND GIVE YOURSELF SOME GRACE. GIVE YOUR MOTHER GRACE. GIVE YOUR FAMILY GRACE AND RECOGNIZE OKAY THIS IS A VERY BIG SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES.

I BET YOU THERE ARE PEOPLE ALL OVER THIS LISTENING AUDIENCE RIGHT NOW AND THEN. LISTEN LATER ON WHO HAVE BIG TEARS IN THEIR EYES BECAUSE THEY'RE WALKING THE SAME PATH IN THEIR DRAWING STRENGTH FROM WHAT YOU'VE DONE.
