This morning I had the distinct displeasure of having my heart stress tested. It would have been fine if it was just walking on a treadmill. I have no problem with that. What I was not expecting was the IV needle they put in my arm and left there for the duration. I didn’t know how many injections were involved in a stress test! So they stuck the IV needle in so they could just stick me one time for all the injections that are involved. I don’t get along with needles.
The bright spot in the morning came after the treadmill test. I was talking to the nurse about my job situation and just off-handedly remarked that “Someone” had always taken care of my family and I and “He” always would. Even in the next life. Then she quoted a verse from the Psalms to me. To which I replied “Oh, you’re a Christian too!” She finished taking all the leads off me and as I was about to walk out she asked, “Do you mind if I pray for you?”
She held both my hands and prayed a beautiful prayer asking God to continue to care for my family and I through my job loss and search and for wisdom and for patience and… etc. Afterwards I squeezed her hands and told her what a wonderful witness for Christ she had been this day. I only regret that I didn’t pray for her too. You can bet I will pray for her tonight.
Thank you Tammy. You were a blessing to me today.
