Modern Day Samaritan Woman

FEAR HAS A NAME!!! “ALZHEIMER'S”

Dedicated to my Mom…We will overcome this thing together!!! You and I, mom… with help from Our Father,


BECAUSE…God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of sound mind.


Fear is a verb, a thing, a monster, that stalks its prey…and pounces at any opportunity. It has a name 

…..Alzheimer’s…..

Imagine waking up every morning in a strange bed, in an unfamiliar room, with strange people around you and not remembering how you got there. Or where there is?
Worse yet!! Horror!! Not remembering who you are.

Imagine, repeatedly, going through drawers and handbags and cupboards, unpacking and repacking a life time of collected possessions, as if the repetition of unpacking these things will help you find your sense of self. Everything appears familiar, but also so very alien, confusing, unknown.

Imagine your brain being clogged up and fuzzy. Vague images of a life lived, filter through from time to time, but before you can truly grasp what you know you need to remember those images are gone again…lost in the hazy mist of forgetfulness.

Imagine, holding your tooth brush in your hands for hours and despite staring at it intently and trying very hard to focus, you just cannot remember what it is and what you are supposed to do with it.

Imagine trying to pray but not remembering the words…

Yes!!! fear is an ugly monster, but it will not prevail. 

We will overcome…together we will beat it back into the corner it came from, because our God lives…

He will guide us and Holy Spirit will comfort us…

He will reach you where none of us can and you need not be afraid because the only Fear you need to know if the Fear of The Lord…


I love you mom...

*Hugs* till next time.
