The Choir at the Nursing Home

Sunday I went to the nursing home with a few members of the Holy Temple Church Young Adlut Radio Choir.

We normally go on a Sunday after morning service. I think the most difficult part in visiting the nursing home is leaving the temple.  Most times, everyone is hungry and want to hurry and get something to eat. Other times, everyone have that last thing to do before we leave. However, the best part is listening to everyone’s self-reflections after leaving the home.

Most of the members say that going to the nursing home is sometimes better than sitting through church. Everyone talk about the feelings they feel after visiting a group of people they don’t know and spending time with them for a hour.

I see that it helps the choir in many ways too. For one, we get an opportunity to sing outside of church to a different audience. We also sing a capella which is something I enjoy.

After singing, we make it a point, to greet our audience who are mostly bound in wheelchairs. One choir member, made an observation of the youngest people in the nursing home. A young man and a young women who seem to be in their right minds.  They seemed to be no older than 40.

Here is a photo of us ministering to the only person we personally know in the Nursing home, Mother Wood. She is in the 90’s and is one of the oldest Mother’s in our church. Nursing Home

Europe’s Oldest Woman Says Being Single Helped Her Live to 115

Another reason to stay single

TIME

Emma Morano, Europe’s oldest woman, says eating raw eggs and staying single has kept her alive for over 115 years.

Morano told the New York Times that she’s been single since 1938, when her first and only marriage ended after the death of her infant child. (Divorce only became legal in Italy in 1970.) She’s had many suitors since but has rebuffed them all, she says, and attributes her longevity to staying single most of her life.

“I didn’t want to be dominated by anyone,” she said.

Well, that and her diet: per the early recommendation of a doctor, she has eaten three raw eggs a day since she was a teenager.

Morano is the fifth oldest person in the world and has lived through two world wars as well as monarchy, fascism and democracy in Italy.
