And, you're blog was also right, your patients may see Jesus in no one else in their life that day, but in you.
They'll have plenty of people cross their paths who are rude, not long-suffering with them, looking down on them or even not noticing them at all.
It takes a great person of strength (that we attain from the Lord) to look them in the eyes, appreciate them for the moment we have them...
...and as a patient they're a captive in the room...
and we are allowed the chance to honor their presence in the "present condition" that they're in, and give to them.
A smile, a moment of rest, a hug, and especially with the cranky--an understanding that they've been hurt.
Even a silent prayer of rest & peace for them. Those who want prayer will ask you--because you'll resonate Him in the room.
For so many people who don't take Jesus with them anywhere, there He'll be... WITH YOU!!
Keep on keeping on girlfriend!
PS=I know the feeling of TRYING to keep a blog everyday. NOT. Can't do it, just do it as often as you have something to say. :) Ease up on yourself, we could all use more grace for ourselves! Add me as a friend & I'll cheer you on 987 days ago
