Another Generation Now in Danger

Every day is a gift. All life is precious! I went to the store during the “senior” hour, and there was this young 30 year old in line and I overheard this conversation beginning with her first statement of “I did not know this was geriatric day!” With a loud laugh looking all around. An older woman behind her said softly, “The announcement was made that many grocery stores are recommending those over 60 who are in a high risk category to come get what they need during this first hour to help protect them against the virus. Younger healthy people can be carriers even if they do not get sick, and older ones and those who are already weaker for other reasons can die.” This younger person, very loudly then stated in an extremely disrespectful voice, “Well, I am a lawyer and that sure does sound like discrimination to me!” Then the cashier said to the younger person, “We will not turn anyone away. It’s okay you are here now.” And the one who began the conversation smiled a big smile and with a triumphant look took her receipt and said, “Well that is good to know!” The older woman said no more and the cashier was not real friendly to her at all. I recognized the reality that prayer is now happening like never before, everywhere, because I sure was praying for all the moms and dads and aunties and uncles and grandparents who will not be around this time next year….and for those 50 and under who will be! LORD HAVE MERCY….as we continue to contend for the babies in the womb in danger of being aborted, we must pray for the elderly in our land who seem to be the current group of people we must contend for with urgency!

LISTENING FOR THE HEARTBEAT OF HEAVEN I am fully alive on the inside, because I was born-again in 1971! Mine is a WonderFULL life. I am honored being a mom and Grammy, helping others as a Grief Chaplain and Missionary on the field of prayer and choosing daily to listen to the heartbeat of heaven. Here, come hear with me, for THE HEARTBEAT OF HEAVEN is all you will find on my blog

  1. Debbie,

    The selfishness of the young person is inexcusable. Whether they are a lawyer or astronaut, doctor or scientist, ditch-digger or short-order cook, it is still selfish. Fortunately, I have been able to work with young people my whole life either in the bicycle industry, as a high school teacher, or as a landlord in an urban city, and the vast majority of young adults are caring, kind, and generous people. Currently all of my tenants are sharing food, drink, and companionship when necessary in this virus crisis. Perhaps the fellow simply points out the other side of human nature — or to use a Christian term, the sin of Adam. Being a Christian is the opposite of this act: Giving at a personal cost, loving our enemies, and even dying for Justice.

    We should pray for the fellow. On the other hand, I’m pretty sure I have a giant Sequoia tree poking out of my eye!

    Your friend,

  2. May we younger people find a new value and respect for the older generations. Many of them have quietly endured so much, and we have so much to learn from them. May their lives be more precious to us than ever!
