Holli Strong Tours Cypresswood Senior Living, Talks about Hospice and the Medicare HELP ACT
On April 15th Holli Strong, Eastern Field Director for Congressman Mike McCaul (District 10) met with Lueata Evenson, LMSW of the Hospice North Houston Office. They enjoyed a fun tour of our Cypresswood community, hosted By Family Ambassador Charlla Neason. After the tour, Holli and Lueata sat out in the courtyard and talked about the wonderful culture of Silverado, just what Hospice is, and how all Hospices, their patients and families will be greatly impacted negatively if Congress follows through as planned in 2015. Ms. Strong expressed her interest and was provided material to share with Congressman McCaul.

Slowly, and with some ambivalence, I will begin to experience the new in my life.
Spirituality in its broadest sense is, quite simply, a way of life that reveals an awareness of the sacred and a relationship with the Holy One in the midst of our human frailty, brokenness and limitations.
--Edward C. Sellner
To be faced with the loss of a loved one is to be engaged—or reengaged more intensely—with the experience of the spiritual. Questions of our loved one’s survival, of our own relationship to the spiritual world, of our possible communion with the dead now or after our own death—all come to us with new urgency. Surely if we can summon an awareness of the Holy One as a loving, caring reality, we shall be miles ahead! We can bear the uncertainty of answers to our questions if we feel that the One who is in charge cares for us all, grieves with us when we are sad, and wills our good. This has been the yearning, and the confidence, of believers through the ages. “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen,” said the apostle Paul in the Letter to the Hebrews. These things are no less real for being “not seen.”
--In the midst of my brokenness, O Holy One, may I be made newly aware of you.
"We are real friends now because we have been able to share some painful experiences in our private lives..."
