Second Thoughts – International Nurses Day 2020
Greetings Dear Reader,
Over the last year, I have been privileged to befriend several nurses. Each of them brings to their work compassion and a passion that reminds me so much of the love that Christ wishes for us to see. They work difficult jobs over odd shifts, sacrificing time with family to make a difference in the lives of those in need.
My friends who are nurses do everything from neonatal care to emergency room trauma intervention. Some of them were students of mine and some are friends I have met along the way. Each of them shows love for other lives that few get to freely express. I am proud of each of them for the dedication they show to their vocation.
Today we honor nurses around the world. I wanted to take a moment to be sure that the nurses I know are aware of how much I love and respect them. I will listen when you tell me what to do to care for myself. I will understand when you are tired. I will always pray for you and the work you carry.
I pray for your families as well. They lose a little of you as you work to extend life to others. I know it is taxing but the greater good you do is vital to us all. Today is the day I renew my commitment to honor nurses and all the things they do for us. Join me, Dear Reader, in thanking them.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a homeowner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
