Have you sometimes wondered if the work you are doing is making a difference, or if it is important or worthwhile? Often the work we do as nurses and caregivers is unseen and behind closed doors. We at Century Park are all members of one body with many parts working in a collaborative fashion to accomplish our mission. Some of the parts of the body are visible and others are hidden. The vital organs of our physical body are not seen, such as our heart, lungs, liver, and brain, and we cannot live without them. In the same way, the work you do as nurses and caregivers may be hidden from sight, but it is vital, and we cannot survive without you.
One of the Names of God is El Roi, commonly translated as "The God who sees me," meaning that nothing escapes God's notice. Regardless of whether anyone on earth sees our work or not, God sees it. There is coming a day when the work we’ve done will be rewarded by our heavenly Father.
Thank you for the kindness, compassion, and unconditional love you show to our residents, families, and associates. The humble sacrifices you make are turning our communities into better places to live and work and do not go unnoticed. You kindle the fire of hope in the darkness of despair and illuminate our world with a beacon of light, hope, and love shining through you. We are thankful you answered the call—you are vital, you are true heroes, and you are the heartbeat of our mission. To God be the Glory!
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. - Colossians 3:23-24
