On Tuesday, September 1, Redeemer Lutheran Church – Fort Collins, Colorado, presented a small blue Mercy Heart to Charlotte. Charlotte was at one time a Stephen Minister for Redeemer. She recently lost her husband, who was her caregiver, and is now living in an assisted care facility. LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Cubby also visited since Charlotte was missing her dog who could not make the move with her.
We read the bible verse on the heart which was a reference from Psalm 23 and also some of the words of encouragement to Charlotte written by the current Stephen Ministers at Redeemer. We also left a Cubby Comfort Dog stuffie for her to love. After visiting, we prayed with Charlotte and she was very appreciative of our visit, the Mercy Heart, and a visit from Cubby.
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want … and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23)
