Surrey Place honors caregivers with ‘Blessing of the Hands’ ceremony

I have been amazed by the response of my staff this week, as we did ‘Blessing of the Hands ceremony.’ The Lord gave me a poem to read to them. I asked them to meet me in the chapel, and as I read the poem and reminded them that God sees their labor and the work they do is appreciated, the tears were falling.

From nursing and housekeeping to dietary, God touched each and every one of them. I followed up by going there at 10:00 p.m. Thursday night. They were thankful and happy to receive prayer and blessings. One CNA texted me after I got home and thanked me. She said it was just what she needed.

Thank you to Signature for giving us freedom and allowing us to have this ‘ministry.’ It was an intimate prayer and anointing between God, me, and our staff.
