I read a few post of friends who had love ones dying or that had died. I read a post from a respiratory therapist of the pain, heartache and struggle caring for Covid patients and seeing die alone in the hospital. I faced a lot of difficult situations the 35 plus years that I was a nurse, but I know that they were not anything like what the nurses and health care workers are facing today. I have failed you because I haven’t prayed every day for you. I have thought of what you must be going through, but I haven’t asked God, every day, to strengthen you, comfort you and give you peace. But I thank God for showing me, today, what I can do for you. I will now pray, each day, for all front line workers as you go through your day. Praise God for all of you giving of yourself to care for us.
May all of us wear our mask, wash our hands and social distance by 6 feet. May we do this not out of fear, but out of respect for each other. May we do it out of respect for those that are working so hard to instruct us, to care for us, and care for their family. May we show others we love them by wearing our mask, washing our hands and social distancing.
May we always remember and pray for everyone who has lost a family member or friend during this difficult time and anytime. May we remember that a piece of them is gone. Look at them and see that portion that is missing, because it hurts them so very much, even though they appear so very strong.
1 Corinthians 13:4-5: “Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”
