Pureflix: Going Home - A Bountiful Love

Pureflix: Going Home

 Television shows can be saturated with bad and depressing news. Other times, shows compromise family values to appease what is currently a hot topic or to satisfy certain crowds in exchange for profits or views. I think that it is imperative that we choose what we let our eyes see and what our minds and hearts absorb. That is why I love Pureflix. The shows may not be full of the A-list actors that you are accustomed to but I can assure you that the shows that Pureflix has will touch your heart and may change your life. 

I love when Pureflix releases new original series! Right now, we are watching their new series, Going Home. I must admit though that in the first episode, I thought that it is sad and heavy for my heart. Going Home follows an inspiring team of nurses as they guide patients and loved ones on their last journey-heading home to Christ. Sunset House is no ordinary hospice as they not only help the patients medically but as well as spiritually. From the first episode, I can clearly sense the theme of the shows...nurses helping patients in their transition to going home to God with peace and dignity. 

 When we think about it, when we know when our days are numbered, it is hard not to feel regrets. I think all the feelings that a human being can have will all be felt in our last days. Regret is probably one of the most astounding feelings. Going Home does not only shows the bravery and commitment of all the nurses but the different situation of different people from different walks of life. I especially admire Charley's composure and faith. I love how she audibly talks to God at the end of the day. A casual conversation about her day, her patients, and her feelings or what she is thinking. I can not underemphasize the power of prayer. Imagine if all the nurses or all the members of a care team pray for their patients? How incredible it will be if all the members of your care team found their career as their calling? That is how Charley treats her profession- as a calling. A calling to help her patients find peace and wrap up loose ends. She also help patients' families as they walked through this difficult transition of losing a loved one.

 Episode 4, Eye of the Needle, follows the mother-son relationship of Faye and Kenneth Hutton. Faye is the donor of the reflection room. She is concerned about who will visit her and fight over her fortune. Her son, Kenneth, arrives and insists she comes home for care, and Charley witnesses a very tense conversation. Faye doesn’t trust Kenneth to make the right decisions and him having control over what remains of her life.  I love how Charley expresses her faith and explains to Faye that money is not really a source of happiness. I love how she encourages her to mend her relationship with Kenneth. It reminded me of one of the sermons of the church I used to attend, that no one is too far gone with Jesus, Salvation is what he offers,

 Additionally, Katherine (Charley's friend) arrives at the hospice. Her kids decorated her room just like her home. It touched my heart when Katherine, knowing that her days are numbered still helps her daughter with homework. A mom's job is not truly done. It really gives you a perspective. How will you handle things when you know any time or any day now, you will be with our Heavenly Father.

I also see Charley loosen up a little bit. I will be honest that she seems to be so uptight that I feel like she is missing out a little bit. You will also see Alex, Katherine's husband processed grief differently. That process had caused some tense conversations between him and Katherine. It will remind you that while each of us processes grief differently, we all need God's grace and be able to give grace,

Some of the values that I got from this episode are:

Treat your clients equally- each to be treated with care and respect regardless of your disposition in life.
Accepting praise with grace.
Charitable giving - what are your real motivations when helping out?
Legacy, What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind.
Fear of death and fear of being alone are real and valid.
Difference between all the “tools to get you through life”: humility, kindness, forgiveness and money, influence and power
Peaceful passing, and no regrets after it happens

Here are a few bible verses that can help you reflect on this episode: 

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. – Psalms 46:1-3 (NIV)

A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. – Proverbs 13:22 (NIV) 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. – Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)
