Dear Fellow Activity Professional,

The job we have is one with great responsibilities.  Other people do not understand the stresses we face every day.  The
desire to create and execute meaningful activities for our residents, the mountains of paperwork required by the
government, the extra work hours required just to keep up with the need, many times operating as a department of one,
trying to maintain a healthy family life...all of these things and a thousand more press down on us and pull us in a dozen
directions at the same time.  We all need help.

Many of us feel that God has called us to our positions. And I believe this is so.  Being an Activity Professional can be one
of the most wonderful and rewarding jobs in the world.  But, it can also be one of the most frustrating.  Sometimes all of us
need the opportunity to make our feelings known.  That is why my husband Bob (
who is a pastor) and I have established
this very special page.  Please take advantage of this opportunity to make your prayer requests known.  Feel free to
submit a prayer request. Feel free to vent.   All submissions are confidential and no one will contact you; but, you can be
confident your prayer request will be made known to God.  Everything is anonymous unless you choose to identify
yourself in the text.

May God bless you and uphold you in His love,

Linda Lucas, AD, your sister in Christ

The Lord's Prayer
Matthew 6:9-13

Our Father
which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
in earth,
as it is
in heaven.
Give us this day
our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not
into temptation,
but deliver us
from evil:
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory,
for ever.
