Of course, it is always sad when somebody is very ill. However, when the person is a little child, there is added grief. And, no matter what time of year, it is hard for a family to have a sick child to care for. However, it might be that the Christmas season is the hardest time of all for a family who is dealing with a child who has a serious illness. After all, isn't Christmas supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year? If the family members of the little child is witnessing joy all around them, it might be a reminder that Christmas joy doesn't extend to them. If you are a person who is helping the family of a very sick child, from bringing Christmas into the home to planning a spiritual healing service, here are some ideas that might help you to bring comfort at a difficult time.
Bring Christmas Into The Home - Because the adult members of the child's family have probably been totally focused on their little sick child, Christmas decorations might not have even been a consideration. However, that doesn't mean that you can't tastefully decorate the family's home. Even a Christmas tree with pretty lights will be a reminder that the family is cared for. And, if there are other children in the home, they will more than likely be thrilled to have a decorated tree. Another way you might bring Christmas into the child's home is by arranging for Christmas carolers to serenade the family. And, don't forget to bring special foods that the family will enjoy. Consider having a sign-up where different friends bring meals on a consistent schedule.
Plan A Spiritual Healing Service - Even if the little child is too sick to leave his or her home, you can plan a spiritual healing service without him or her being present. Just let the family know that a group of friends and others in the area will be joining together to pray for the sick child. You can have the spiritual healing service at a church or at another meeting place, even right at the child's home. Consider asking a priest or another ecclesiastical leader to lead the spiritual healing service. He or she might tell stories from the Bible about people whom Jesus healed. Prayers will be said and there might even be inspiring music. In fact, consider making a request that the child's favorite songs be sung by those who attend the service.
