WHEN OLSTERS AND HANDICAPED ARE DEPENDENT ON OUR CHILDREN
THE SUNSET YEARS
By Frank E.

Oh when did the sunset years come? I did not see them approaching from
Around the bend in a very hurried life! Yet they arrived moulding around me.
to me, "What sunset years, Are your speaking to me about?" Well, they're when your children take
charge Of your life, making major changes.
Changes you know need to be done So
confusing and often wrenching That your mind releases its control And you go with the resulting flow.
Yes you're out-voted so you agree Knowing you have taught them well Your reason and resolve
dissipated Not completely but in many ways.
Don't be sad for you have entered
Into another phase of life's cycle, You have trained your children to care So rest in that you have done
Oh Lord Jesus help
me to let go Of the reins that control my life Give me the serenity to accept With a grateful
heart their lead.
Being thankful that my family who Devote their time to care for me Now
being ill or old age limits me To purse my old vigorous life.
For as I grow older I would choose
To bypass this sunset year’s phase But I can't, so please God strengthen me As I learn
acceptance and forbearing.
Leaning on You, my Saviour Jesus To take my hand and guide me forth
To be an example of the old and ill Who proclaim You even in old age.
it is the last ministry In the Christian walk and a hard one Let me be shinning beacon of Jesus
For all to see the glory of God.

LORD JESUS, HELP ME TO ACCEPT THAT I AM OLD AND NEED
THE HELP OF MY FAMILY IN MAKNG DECISIONS.
THERE IS A TIME TO BE YOUNG AND HAVE HEALTH. MY GRANDKIDS
ARE THERE NOW. I CAN NOT RETURN FOR MY TIME HAS PAST. BUT MOST INPORTANT IS THAT I CAN GO TO HEAVEN SOON TO SEE GOD AND ENJOY
ETERNAL LIFE. PRAISE GOD
