Reflections of a caregiver's heart! Mar 14, 2005
Carmen Leal understands that even the most loving, committed caregiver experiences a sense of isolation and exhaustion. The Twenty-Third Psalm for Caregivers reflects her sense of empathy. She has walked in those shoes, and writes: "A caregiver's job often seems thankless as we bathe, feed, comfort, fight battles, cut through red tape, and give direction. I'm sure our heavenly Father, our Caregiver, often feels His job is thankless as He cares for us."
Fifteen stories represent fifteen distinct facets of God's own character as He lovingly and gently shepherds us, including The Shepherd Who Cares...The Shepherd Who Directs...The Shepherd of Peace...and The Shepherd Who Heals. Carmen shares stories of her own caregiving experience, as well as the experiences of others who have walked this long, tiring road. Through it all, she weaves a golden thread of hope and healing.
