News & Views from Campus: May 5-11, 2019

Being a Nurse Means…

You will never be bored.
You will always be frustrated.
You will be surrounded by challenges, 
so much to do and so little time.
You will carry immense responsibility
and very little authority.
You will step into people’s lives
and you will make a difference.
Some will bless you.
Some will curse you.
You will see people at their worst-
And at their best.
You will never cease to be amazed
at peoples capacity for
love, courage, and endurance. 
You will experience resounding triumphs
And devastating failures.
You will cry a lot.
You will laugh a lot. 
You will know what it is to be human
and to be humane.

This week we want to recognize the dedicated and hard-working nurses during National Nurses Week. You may recognize some of them as the person who gives you medications or bandages a wound. Others are behind the scenes working to make sure things run smoothly. All of our nurses put their heart and soul into their work. We truly appreciate all they do to make Good Sam a loving home for all of our residents.

Prayer Request & Scripture

This week we are praying for the residents in Anna Brown Vista and the Maintenance staff. 

Our Scripture of the Week is Psalm 4:6-8 (The Message): “Why is everyone hungry for more? “More, more,” they say. “More, more.” I have God’s more-than-enough, more joy in one ordinary day than they get in all their shopping sprees. At day’s end I’m ready for sound sleep, for you, God, have put my life back together.”
