Nursing Home Humor

Yesterday me and my friend Warren visited the local nursing home. I led the weekly worship service and then we went around to individual rooms to visit people.

One of those people was 96-year-old Dorothy, a dedicated, long time member of our church. She's lived at the nursing home for about four years now. I played guitar while Warren and I sang her favorites, "Little Brown Church in the Vale," and "The Lilly in the Valley." After a few more, it was time to say goodbye.

I told Dorothy, "It was nice to see you."

And Dorothy replied, "Well, at 96 I'm not much to see."

Her humor illustrates why she's one of the most beautiful Christian ladies you'll ever meet.
