This past Friday we had our annual “Rock for Life”. The Residents participated by getting donations from family, friends and staff and rocked for at least 15 minutes. We began every 15 minutes with the “Prayer for Life.” In between the prayer the Residents listened to soothing music, which gave them time to pray and reflect. We had 34 Residents participate and they collected $527.00! One Resident, Kathy Finley collected $232.00!
Prayer for Life:
O God, our Creator, all life is in your hands from conception until death. Help us to cherish our children and to reverence the awesome privilege of our share in creation. May all people live and die in dignity and love. Bless all those who defend the rights of the unborn, the handicapped and the aged. Enlighten and be merciful toward those who fail to love, and give them peace. Let freedom be tempered by responsibility, integrity and morality.
