The retirement complex is very nice and we took various walks in the halls. Here are some pictures of nice sitting areas that are scattered throughout:
This is a very typical site - the Today devotional book is read daily by many Dutch CRC (Christian Reformed Church) Christians. My Oma and Opa always read the Bible and a devotional piece with a prayer after every meal - breakfast, lunch and diner. Their faithfulness is lovely to see.
Here is a smaller sitting area - I love the rug! The Today book pictured above is from this little nook. I am always impressed by this complex - always clean, orderly. One of the cleaning woman was praying and singing hymns under her breath. It is a special place.
I got a kick out of the elevators, which had the emergency instructions in English and in Dutch. Here is the Dutch instructions:
It is a comfortable clean world for me to visit. I was inspired by the cleanliness of my Oma's apartment - there is no clutter anywhere. I have a lot to learn from her! My goal is to have a more orderly, clean and clutter free apartment... once my furniture is in and assembled.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of where my Oma lives! I am blessed to have her in my life. She always counsels me about reading my Bible, getting along with others, and family. She has good practical wisdom and I am thankful for her. My Mother once commented that my Oma has seen a lot of changes in her life, but that she never changed. I hope someday someone can say this about me - that I was steadfast and unwavering - especially in my hope in God. May the Lord so grant His mercy to all of us!
