A wonderful Caregiver

by adustyframe ~ March 31st, 2008

Last night, we were watching a show on TV. I don’t even remember if it was a commercial or a show, but a comment was made,

“Too bad there wasn’t a caregiver to take care of the caregivers.”

Immediately, I said, “Yeah! It’s too bad there’s not.”

A very still voice spoke quietly to my heart, “I take care of you.”

Oh! Yes. The Lord takes very good care of us. He takes wonderful care of me.

I thought of this song then. It’s one of my Dad’s favorites.

If you go here you can listen to the 1st verse and chorus. (click on #11)

It was written by Charles Weigle an evangelist. He came home from an evangelistic campaign to find a note on the piano. His wife was tired of being married to an evangelist and she left him.

No One Ever Cared for Me Like Jesus

1. I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus
Since I found in Him a friend so strong and true;
I would tell you how He changed my life completely,
He did something that no other friend could do.

Chorus No one ever cared for me like Jesus;
There’s no other friend so kind as He;
No one else could take the sin and darkness from me.
O how much He cared for me!

2. All my life was full of sin when Jesus found me;
All my heart was full of misery and woe;
Jesus placed His strong and loving arms around me,
And He led me in the way I ought to go.

 3. Ev’ry day He comes to me with new assurance,
More and more I understand His words of love;
But I’ll never know just why He came to save me,
Till some day I see His blessed face above.

    i rarely watch tv, but i watched some food network and hgtv this past weekend while my kids were with their dad … and i actually saw that commercial!

    you know … there have been a few times i’ve had the privalege to care for the ‘caregiver.’ one time, in particular, a friend of mine walked another friend through a horrific divorce. i was there for my friend while she was there for her friend. i had to focus, though … so i could be there only for her.

    I’m glad you could be there for her. So what commercial was it?

    What a beautiful song–I found several versions on youtube and listened to three of them while I got ready (time to run errands!).

    I hope you have a wonderful day!

    Remember that old chorus
    “WHere do I go, oh where do I go, where do I go but to the Lord.”

    There were so many times as I was caring for my mom (she had Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s) that I was too tired, too numb, and too sick of hearing my own complaints to turn to anyone else.

    My prayers were tears, mumbles, and a deep knowing that I wasn’t alone.

    I’m grateful for the faith my parents gave me–and later that faith became my own.

    Yes! that is a great song.

    My prayers were tears, mumbles, and a deep knowing that I wasn’t alone.
    I’ve been there too.
