American family radio this is a family caregiver 65 currently serving what is available. Somebody who takes care of global low blood with a chronic some kind, whether there dealing with Alzheimer's, autism, addiction may be they have some type of trauma that is happened to them that is calls a chronic impairment, chronic pain, mental illness, there's all kinds of chronic impairments. There's always a caregiver.

Some of them do it up close and personal everyday 24 seven and some of them are doing it from a distance. Some of them are partnering with other family members, but there's always a kick and maybe that you and if so, you're in the right place. This is the show for family caregivers that you're not caregiver you can get something on the show.

If your pastor if your counselor if you want to even if even know what character which we all do you go to get something out of this. The show was specifically for the family caregiver and I speak fluent caregiver here on the show doing it now for 35+ years through a medical nightmare and along the way have learned a few things I think all of it the hard way. I don't think of everyone anything the easy life.

I think I have printed to the heart and in those insights that we talk about of the show sustain us through the craziness and what I have found in my experience is that this thing can go out of control very quick. Actually, it's always out of control, but it can really start coming at us very quickly and sometimes it's just relentless and in that moment when you are struggling to find solid ground. What did you do how do you anchor yourself.

How do you reorient your thinking so that you're not swept away by this this is this is the crux of the whole program is the crux of everything I do with my books and everything is how do we anchor ourselves to stand firm when it gets really really gnarly and a lot of people talk about caregiving. I see that a lot across the media and so forth through about caregiving. I don't do that on the show we will swerve into it. If you have a specific question about something, but if it what this shows about is the caregiver. That's why ask every audience member every bit of it every every color to show how are you feeling. It's not that we want to start talking about our feelings and that's the you know everything subject to our feelings. If this now we have a real conversation about how you're doing because caregiver struggle to speak in first person singular.

We struggled to speak in our own voice, for whatever reason there are a lot of but the point is for you to start speaking in your voice me to start speaking in my voice so that we can then start on the path to healthiness. Okay I feel miserable today. Fearful day, resentful, and whatever it doesn't matter is no wrong answer now have an honest conversation. We want to get out of the God talk. Where would you say well I'm just blessed but I hate my mom actually had that call to the show you don't. We don't talk in the God talk. We want to be honest with what's going on with us. So then we can go and look at it in the light of Scripture soaking was going to say, but this and if you go into Psalms particular you'll see an enormous passages of Scripture that does passage of Scripture that are talking about. The author weathers David or us of the others struggling with very very serious problems in their being candid about to go back and look in Jeremiah you see the same thing in virtually anyone who was ever walked with God. That is, spotlighted Scripture struggles on some level, and they get pretty good level honest about and then we see what God's response to that is so that's the point of the show if you will be a part of the show. If you're struggling something today.

Whatever is going on in your life. 888-589-8840 888-589-8840.

We don't give answers because I don't think there are answers that we can process here for a lot of things that we deal with on this earth but what we did was we put it back to look at what Scott it that brings us to our song for today and I'll go to the caregiver keyboard very quickly see if this is almost embarrassingly easy. But there's a reason I'm doing it so see if you embarrassingly easy. Yes, but we don't want when we're in the middle of the craziness in our life is caregivers. We need embarrassingly and if you don't think you do give it some time you'll realize that that's exactly the case we cannot on our own fight this.

We cannot white knuckle this we cannot some housecleaner eyes real tight and were just going to just muscle our way through it.

We can't do it tomato for day or two. Maimed over a week or two, I met this for 3 1/2 decades, political intake, you can't do it. It's only a matter of time to you crash and burn and you got to hang on something that is much stronger than you through this and that's why you play the songs. That's why I have the these these hymns. These courses that everything is because sometimes in the middle of all the noise in all the confusion is going on her life. These familiar phrases and melodies and so forth. Stand apart and in just kind of burst through the confusion and give us clarity for the moment and it doesn't necessarily make us feel better but that's not the goal was to feel better understand the goal is not to feel better. My wife is had, now 81 surgeries that I can count. She is recovering from the surgery.

She hurts all the time.

She's not going to feel better and I'm certain not to feel better about watching her do it. But that's not the goal.

The goal is to be better to be stronger to be wise, to be calm her to be more focused on what God is doing in this as we travel through this journey that he sees fit to allow us to go through. We don't have to like it. And I'm certainly not a consultant, you know, to the Almighty here.

God doesn't. You know start out each day and say hey Peter what you what you think about this is my father father's loan to minister. She's got to get this probably thinks he's God. That's the journey we have is caregivers is understanding okay where not God in this and I used to be what I started on this journey. I was so demanding I wanted to know why. Why was God doing this and then over time that changed and I became comfortable saying I don't know now as I'm getting little bit older and thinking I'm really letting other places. I can't know not until I'm with you cannot know what I'm learning to make light here in this is this is the silvery who is a family care regimen 880-589-8888 589-8040 885-8980 848-885-8988 40 or so for the data display just the course of it because will get some the culture. I know that some 888-589-8840 888-589-8840.

Let's go to this is that Mike in Wisconsin having a hard time logging into this Mike hang on just a second.

All this hits a little brain you might good morning, how are you feeling tired Willis little early morning to be tired so you obviously didn't have a great night last night is that it accurate statement yeah I will what you got on your mother how you feeling well. I hear live. Why I felt my brother year that only mental illness and alcohol in 25 years and that bad Problem that all he Iraqi state all at other times very clear right hi, I'm very clear about that. Okay and not my mind may help them out. How old is your brother.

I for my dad at night and my brother. I 20 very difficult. The Army now third I ended up football out and I get back home. I actually think white light out of their home in United on many struggled to get trouble.

Alcohol separated light. I thought it is that yes is this what is the was the plan for your brother after your father passes away. Well that's up and we all get all I know I have a plan that come up with plan for either. I have a sister that youngest of all adopted the span of 29 year will we get before we get to Florida. We once what's next action steps that you can take to start having the plan because your father's 90. This is unsustainable and it's it's it's coming up quick, what's the next action step that you can take in order to develop a plan for your brother well my dad. Why well and bitterly. While will sounds like it sounds like your dad your dad at 90 years old is doing this is pulling way more than then he's able to do.

That's a lot to ask if throwing a 60-year-old man, much less a 90-year-old man so I want to listless back to this. What's the next step because your father is going to die within a short amount of time reasonably mean we don't want them to insert link but but it's but is not William Shatner showed that an audio going to space.

Most people can't do that so what what what needs to happen next with your family to look at these very tough issues you got us. Evidently a stepmother who's also infirmed. You've got a brother and and you don't the scenarios continue here.

What's the next action steps that don't have a real conversation about what we can do well there. I why white caregiver role.

I at that debating and she offered. That really need more care that they don't all you get a plan you get along with your sister.

I yet you all have a can you and your you and your sister and your father sit down over lunch one day and start having this conversation, you have that kind of relationship. Yeah, he that that water share more with him. I jerk off you know Holland you Mike Mike were were getting into the weeds of the of the background story. The immediate task at hand is to sit down with your dad and your sister and start droning you do if your to do it on the on a napkin and a waffle house which I have had many of those kinds of conversations with my dad and I still have some of the napkins, but sitting down and mapping out okay. What we need to do what's the next step. Let's have a conversation with have a real conversation about all these people that are in our circle that need care what's our next step and then you met next step may be to call in, you know, professionals.

There are people that can help with that sort of thing whether it's counselors, social workers, you know, home care teams of the VA there's all kinds of things the resources out there, but it starts with you three.

It sounds like sitting down and having a real conversation about this.

Can you schedule that conversation in the next several days I borrow and brought up you go to the VA, I pointed out well. They're going to have all kinds of people. There their chaplains in the military's of Monday was a chaplain military and in their nurse only people that can help, but it starts with you guys having a cohesive conversation plan type of event where you can say okay here's here's what what her options are. Because your father at 90. This is a this is a tall order to ask of your father and and so how about how my schedule that meeting and would you do me a favor after schedule that meeting and have that meeting. Would you mind calling back and tell me how it went about, you know I do that for two reasons that I would like to know personally how goes with you, but also their people in the audience when you listing to this bit of that also are in that place with they got to make a decision to have a conversation and so you know they need to know how how did this go at what what what what worked, what didn't work. What are some things we can incorporate in our life there.

This is how we do as caregivers, we come together on this weather still existed to have these conversations that are not very pleasant.

They're not very fun but it's gonna happen and and we we pulled together we learn from each other.

Okay, what did Mike do with his family.

You know what what what what went wrong but went right, what something I can incorporate from his journey and and so that's what's important. But it doesn't have to be. You don't have to fix everything at one sitting at one meal what you do is you start having the conversation ends okay what her options and okay you you call the VA or you call this person and then let's come back in a week and see the spooler resources and see what would we come up with but but that that the clock is ticking.

When you have a father. This 90 stepmother that's in her 90s, Brotherton's six classes. I bet it that your mother is okay. Yet there while will regard regardless of the of the specifics.

It lets let's stay out of the exhibit regardless of the specifics you got a lot of people in your orbit who are dealing with significant life issues and the clock is ticking. So I thought I applaud you on taking the initiative to go ahead and setting that time to talk and in you know, go, go to a restaurant you guys like her something to just just sit down with a notepad and just start looking at it and then as you do that also ask God you spent time in prayer before him and ask God to give you some scriptures that would apply and bring those in because the principles of God will apply to the conversation you have promised you that I promise principles of God will apply but ask him to show you in Scripture to go in there with a couple of verses this. Okay, here's the wisdom that we believe the Scripture to make this decision. Let me know and I appreciate you calling on this like a really do this is that important. This is happening to families all around the country and you lighted addition we got this so this is the silver was acute this Peter Rosenberg at about 3 1/2 decades as a caregiver. I've spent my share of nights in the hospital sleeping and waiting rooms on foldout cot shares.

This Peter Rosenberg is the silver review as a family caregiver that the caregivers make Medicare part of being help learning to speak from your own voice and strengthen your own heart.

In this journey very much like to get you from receipt of hundred times on the show like David did cyclic with all of his possessions.

All of his family everything and his men were all carted away. They were out fight about looking back in.

Everything's gone by the Melkite and and David was distraught all his men were distraught of the picked up stones to stone him and David encouraged himself in the Lord makes all the men dropped the stones and then they went and got her stuff and they would lead them into battle, but he encouraged himself in the Lord in the midst of great hostility if he can do it then we can do it now and that's the point of what we talked about on the show but what does that look like to encourage yourself in the Lord.

If you listen to songs in a plate on the bumper music coming back.

You put this love in my heart Keith Green and and and I know that I can make it. I know that I can stand the matter what comes my life my life is in your hand gray. She sings that all he saw was under and in these these hymns and courses that only today I guarantee know this if you know this on going call me and tell me why that's important to you deleting 589-8840 but I guarantee for those do know the song that Solomon most of you probably do, you can spend various points of the day around the day you can remember that and that's how we do this caregivers it may sound simple, people may think this is just this is to elementary. I don't care when you been a caregiver for 35 years, you need simple and elementary. Okay I don't need complex. I need simple and that's why play the cells because they are ingrained in us in the they stay with us those melody, stay with us and then we can as we deal with whatever comes our way. So I would go to photos here. This is Geneva in Kansas. Good morning Julio how you feeling wonderful. I woke up to the song. I have my little radio on most of my woke up to admit that the Lord had made and it brought back many wonderful memories. I just came through taking care of my has been for about seven years with Alzheimer's.

I'm not 84 years old and God enabled me to good advice to the young man to speak the words pray and be in the word and it brought me through my precious husband went peacefully to be with the Lord just about a year ago. Not quite, and I'm still living in Geneva.

Silent, yet when this what is the anniversary of his past that no payment before month. What are you going to do all I I I will celebrate when he did go. My daughter managed to be written. She helped me in many many ways wonderful and when he passed. You have a plan for that day. You have a plan for that.

Hey, what you do.

Joy go ask my daughter probably go out and have a meal and just fellowship it. Talk over and so much good came from but it was the time of I didn't know what kind of make my make it fit. I would just he was and he was a prayer warrior hello he went hello.

You will married 71 years, and it was wonderful had some rough times and I with the caretaker for many of my relatives, my mother-in-law, my dad, my mother, you know, and so on and so forth. But what brought me to everything in you case it ignites to the young man my I can do all things through Christ to get me the link I would have to get my husband at that time and he was able to walk the last. He was a fighter and that we would quote Scripture and he would just melt when I click quote.

I can, Proverbs 3, five and six trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own hundred acknowledge him in all your ways and he will direct your paths need only say all I needed to hear that empathy when he really be gone through it and he would forget sometimes but I could bring him back just telling about the time how we met. Now we got married in the songs that were sung in our wedding and gave it all wonderfully. I remember Angelina living on that note Geneva, let me ask you question. Did you find did you find that that he was able to hang on to music to almost the end hanging article after it came out concrete but think of all time right and invite them and never thinking that Carol on the porch and they came in and Wednesday with singing.

Dong bang and it tears love and beautiful and that is remarkable though the songs stay with you in the, the, so many of them are able to punch through even Alzheimer's. That's the power of music and it's it's it's it never ceases to amaze me remember interviewing Glen Campbell's wife and Kim and his music was like one of the last things to go with his Alzheimer's and they lived. They just live down the road from us in Nashville about the rock at their house and when we lived in Nashville in and that was one of the most remarkable things that Glenn's music was was still with him even though he would forget sometimes and and so that's what that the how it is how important what I stress the importance of the songs because they will permeate even Alzheimer's and and that's that's something to be said you knew this song. This is the day that the Lord has made we will rejoice and be glad in it. Do you know by any chance this is a tough question though, but you know the Psalm that it comes from it when I'm reading jumped out at right now. No, and that my typing a little bit of that's all right it does and 94 Geneva, knocking a mugger hold that against you because I like you do that myself sometimes, but it's I think it's I think it's always good to realize how much Scripture is stays in the songs and that's what's I think that's what is the life and breathes life into them. So I just appreciate this is and I you real quick, larger, and when we retired and it was from a very lighthearted life, but a good light in getting up a mission field agreement through America for 22 years we get 159 project. We got out in our 80s working for Christian organization throughout the land, and it was such a that only stick tired and he knows your heart. Direct and United never could do that with vacation we'd rarely got and he put it just fell into place so beautifully. They can't able to and we work those 22 years. Singing all the old hymn song of every kind and coming together in worship and pray we would visit the day the Lord made when we come together with the other missionary but not so beautiful, and you're likely to trust walk with practice is present is so precious she'd never failed you. Sometimes we wait, are you still there yet and you let me know how he brought me through. I never thought I could go through that. I felt like a wet noodle. Most of the time and I know just happened inkling of what you've gone through picture and will is very gracious of you. I'm sitting listening to you and you know you 71 years of marriage and what you two accomplished and the life that you live in.

On November 4. I will make a note to remember you as well in the mass and audience as well to to for this amazing life that you to live together what was your husband's name. Learning what is burning furniture and in unison and the Lord sounds very much like that. It did it. I can see that in and I love the love, the love that you two had and still have echoes through all eternity and what it what a great parent of of of what Christ does for the church is what you and Vernon had together.

That's extraordinarily special yet and may only 23rd Psalm together. My number he would come her idea. No matter what condition he can eat with prayer with and it was a special time. In fact, my daughter and I rejoiced when we got up 530 I take it flat. I held it and and we were rejoicing that he went to Lord free of all that because it was a hard heart that he brought it through you know that words and can't get to work in your because they come forth when needed. The most God is so faithful, so faithful.

He never fails. I'm just getting used to the quietness. Now if it can't thinking that you know all those years and I'm just getting used to the quiet and it just create an and I look over I feel he still here with you, but I feel that I filled it like a look in the chair and well according to the book of Hebrews. He's in the great cloud of witnesses that are cheering you on. I believe that yes oh hello that's that's what that's what the text says with the text so he's in the great cloud of witnesses that are cheering you on. And we are well Geneva and you have blessed us this morning with this tremendous story in a world filled with all the craziness you and Vernon modeled such a beautiful story and thank you so much for sharing that with you want here but I will. I want you know how much I appreciated you calling November 4 knows you make a note on it and lift up Geneva and prayer on November 4. Command rates thing here for her husband's passing and that the God would just particular surround her with the knowledge that were all cheering her on and on. Vernon steering all of us on this well. So thank you for that really do not receive this hope. This is show for 40. This is the day the Lord rejoice, regretting the past right here today. That way there's more dating 589-8840 never struggled to trust God when lousy things happen to you. I'm Gracie Rosenberger, 1983 I experienced a horrific car accident leading 80 surgeries in both legs and became questioned why God allowed something so brittle to happen to me. But over time the questions changed and I discovered courage to trust God that understanding along with an appreciation for quality prosthetic limbs led me to establish standing with help more than a dozen years we been working with the government of Ghana and West Africa, equipping and training local workers to build and maintain quality prosthetic limbs for their own people on a regular basis. We purchased ship equipment and supplies and with the help of inmates in Tennessee prison. We also recycle parts from donated lambs. All of this is to point others to Christ. The source of my help and strength these visit standing with help.com to learn more and participate in lifting others standing without.com. I'm Gracie. I am staining with help would like to hope for the caregiver. This is this is the show for you as a family caregiver this is that so much I just love always love that song. And for those you don't know who Q3 was the use of a favor go on Google know they got the Jesus music documentary outlined on his mission a little bit.

I would see her. He spent a little bit, but he was such a powerful voice but but that that song is little reason to the show. Do you see do you see and caregivers aren't seen. I know this from experience I can't tell you how many people have asked me how my wife is I can't count thank you want to ask about me and 35 years into this but you and so when I realize that this invisible army of people who are caring for chronically impaired loved ones. Some of them dealing with just her horrendous circumstances, who's going to recognize these individuals will speak to them.

Who's going to communicate with how they could understand. It would take somebody that speaks fluent caregiver, because we have our own language. It's it's difficult to talk to a caregiver.

Sometimes if you don't know the journey, if you don't know the language you don't know the scenario. People know what to say and so caregivers just plodded along, struggled limped along often in isolation.

I've absent this many times caregivers can feel isolated in a crowded room and we can feel isolated on a crowded pew and so when I went out envision the show many years ago I was determined I was going to speak directly to caregivers is not that I don't want to speak to other people with it that is just this is who I see this is who I am and so what I do. The songs for you and and and everything that I do on the show it it is is a reflection of my own journey I had to get to the point where I was doing our song for today. This is the day. Rejoice.

It's one thing to sing that in the church with people on drums and guitars and everything else is nothing missing that is your wife goes in search for the 81st. It's another thing to sing. That is your holding the hand of somebody was slipping. It's another thing to sing that if you if you have a child with autism who was just having Milton after Milt's talk with friends of ours. Yesterday they have a special needs son with very dire circumstances in an it's relentless.

He's 27 years old and in it it's it's relentless and I'm not here to to try to bolster you up and say, you know, suck it up and just go, no, no, no, I wanted to start from the inside applicant go all the way down to the core of who we are and deal with it here and deal with that heartache and deal with that sorrow and speak life to it its way down inside us and so people come up and they throw surface. He things at us. You know it and it doesn't stick because it can't because it's not penetrating all the way down to the core and just wanted to show that's why I write books if I write a column. That's why do all the things that I do is because I know from personal experience what it's like to have people throw a basket full of platitudes at me and none of it stick and I also know what it's like when people came along and they spoke life to me. They spoke right down to the very core of who I and helped me walk through this and get stronger and healthier, and so would Keith Green sings that song. Did you see decent yet I do. I do see in a seat around because I am that and somebody saw me several somebody saw me and I want you to know that somebody sees you.

All I'm doing is what Paul talked about in Corinthians offer the same comfort that I myself it received from the God of all comfort and hopefully you will do the same as well to others that you see more but were not going to come and grab people I tell this to my Pentecostal and charismatic friends don't go would grab people start prophesying over. Just sit with them. Just be with you there already. Just so on it you consider right off the cliff just be. I've had people come up do that to me and they just want to just shout at me the blessings of God, no doesn't work that way. He's very call. He's very quiet. He's very gentle.

If you look to Scripture you see that there's us the words like steadfastness, mercy and grace, lovingkindness, don't be afraid, be still. These are permeated all of Scripture because he knows that we are fragile, freaked out messed up people and if we can just calm ourselves down or allow more importantly him to walk us through Congress.

You. You heard what Geneva said that she would read the 23rd Psalm and her husband even in Alzheimer's or jointed. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. Yay though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear what no evil for what thou art with me. He is with this in this. It doesn't seem that way at times. I know that for heaven sakes. I know there are times when you just hang your head and you're just so weary and you're so damn you're so discouraged and in those moments, he is they are.

I promise you he is because I have experienced this more times that I can count. It doesn't necessarily go away doesn't change the reality of our journey in the sense of the slicks don't grow back. Her pain hasn't decreased. I don't know why that God has not seen fit to alleviate this from her. I really don't and out as I told you the last block I I'm becoming a little bit more comfortable saying I can't know I can't. I don't have it in me to process that.

And so I have to make a decision am I going to trust the trust God in this there people that like you said the things throughout platitudes.

You hear this a long time. From pulpits and everything else is just trust God just trust God, you know, that sounds really nice when you're not having to slip through all the stuff the grace and do as a good Yiddish word by the way I like that word. The last thing Mike Rosenberg I'll throw it Yiddish word every that is not an easy thing to say to people but when when you hear people like Geneva were married 71 years and cared for her husband with Alzheimer's. For the last seven years and when you hear the joy in the vibrancy and the excitement in her voice that's different that something the world does not offer don't take my word for look at what the world offers for about five minutes every day on the on the news. Whatever you see now world is an offer that you can't fake it for 71 years. You can't stop possible. But what you can do is anchor yourself in these truth so that when you are going to those tough times and when those tough time seemed to stretch on beyond the horizon that you're not swept away. This is the day this is the day that the Lord make so many of us as caregivers see if this applies to you what has to be we the romanticize or regret the past or we fear or fantasize about the future and Scripture tells us to live here in this moment, this is the day that the Lord is made in this day may contain very painful things for you, but Scripture, Scripture doesn't qualify that it just as this is the day that the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in my hope is that this little course that is so familiar to so many of us will stay with you not only today but throughout the week and beyond. When you are faced with very very difficult things I struggle to say this but I'm proceeding. Anybody else tells you that you can raise an eyebrow. I know because I've done it and say you know well that's nice for him to say those of you who listen to the show regularly and those he knew that don't know you learned a little bit today. You know my journey that would be like Geneva saying to you that you can have an enduring marriage will only say this been married for three years is no big deal. So this is been married for 70 years.

The list when a caregiver tells you that you can trust God in these things. This been doing for 35. Those of us with scars and experience down this road. We have learned a few things that he is. This is can rejoice more in hope. Not come.
