Spiritual Sunday

Remodeling a Small Bedroom to Turn a Sickroom Into An Encouragement Room

 

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine Proverbs 17 22 sm

Let's not just talk about love; let's practice real love. 

1 John 3:18 (MESS)

Welcome to a very special Miracle Party post at SandwichINK Real Estate Info, which is being hosted by Kelee Katillac and Guideposts Magazine! Kelee is a fellow blogger with a gift for giving, along with awesome creative design skills. She heard about Colette Gauthier, recently diagnosed with cancer, whose doctor had just told her that she had a 5-15% chance of survival.

Kelee teamed up with Guideposts and a great team of helpers  and used their wonderful talents for remodeling a small bedroom in Colette's rental house, turning it from a bleak and dingy sickroom into a beautiful and encouraging bedroom which "dramatically helped her through chemotherapy. The restored and renewed space filled her with hope." The video, which documents the story and shares plenty of delightful and encouraging bedroom decor ideas, and the room itself are "great visual reminders that healing is possible for our homes and lives….that miracles do happen!"

What an uplifting story and video (it may take a couple of seconds to load):

Wasn't that terrific! But wait, she's not done! She wants to do it again for others! And you can help her make a big difference very easily. Just pop over to The Katillac Shack and leave a comment. 1 Comment from you earns a $1.00 Donation from Design Gives Back in your name to be given to the next makeover project for someone-in-need. And if you visit the four other blogs listed there, that $1 will turn into $5. Plus, if you sign up for Kelee's free email, you'll increase the amount of the donation even more.

For many of us in the Sandwich Generation, busy caring for elderly parents, helping with the grandchildren, and watching over their yard and real estate needs, finding ways to reach out to minister to others can be a struggle. But this is something most of us CAN do quite easily. AND be blessed ourselves in the process. Blessed by the giving AND blessed by the fun contests Kelee is offering as part of her MIRACLE PARTY in conjunction with Guideposts Magazine. And don't forget to visit Spiritual Sunday as well, for more Miracle Party joy-full fun, along with wonderfully encouraging Bible verses and delightful praise and worship musicJoin us, won't you 🙂

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." 

Luke 6:38 (NIV)

 

 

 

Spiritual Sunday actually starts as early as Saturday, so I thought I'd pop in on Saturday for SandwichINK Real Estate Info with this video from Bill Gaither and their Homecoming Series (seems appropriate for a site that primarily focuses on the house, home, and real estate needs of the Sandwich Generation 🙂 ), with one of the sweet older praise and worship hymn songs.

Featuring one of the world's oldest (if not THE oldest) Living Quartets (it was recorded approximately 1997), the senior citizen tenor was 92 at the time! To echo one of the commenters, I hope and pray if God still has me here on earth at the age of 92, that I'm also still singing and praising Him as wonderfully as this gentleman, Robert S. Arnold! He has since gone on to heaven, himself, at the age of 98! But his testimony for his Savior continues…

Wasn't that great! Wonderful and encouraging for all of us in the Sandwich Generation, caring for elderly parents, to enjoy and share with our grandchildren and our senior parents! Have a blessed week, and for more inspirational Bible verses, praise and worship hymn songs, and words of encouragement, be sure to visit Spiritual Sunday! 🙂 And, be sure to…
