Life is a journey with many twists and turns, ups and downs. Abe Lincoln once said, "it is not about the number of years we live; but how we live those years." It is about our legacy.
One day, we will leave our bodies and our spirits and souls will pass on and enter heaven. Once again we well be reunited with the people who have gone before us. It will be glorious and wonderful beyond description.
Hospice should be to death what Lamaze is to childbirth. No one should think of going through the experience or journey alone or without help.
In today's world, we prepare meals, research job opportunities, plan vacations, look for the best bargains when we shop, purchase cars, homes, etc. But do we prepare ourselves for the final exit, from life to death? With Stein Hospice involved, they can prepare the patient and their families for death. Out physical bodies charge and there are mental and spiritual changes that take place. Stein Hospice can help explain what to expect and why. They are also preparing people for their final journey from earth to heaven. What a rewarding experience! (I truly believe I was called to hospice just like a pastor or priest is called to the ministry).
