I hadn’t really planned to visit the hospital today.
Plans do change, however, and I found myself sitting with our son in the emergency room. After five hours had passed, we were allowed to go home.
Home. What a wonderful place it can be at times. Times like leaving a hospital and yearning for the comfort and familiarity of your own bed.
Just as we were leaving this afternoon to take our son to the hospital, I quickly picked up a gift I had been given only yesterday. It was a New Testament with writings of Max Lucado on John 3:16. As we waited in the sterile surroundings of the ward, I read each contemplation by Mr. Lucado. I also began reading from Hebrews. Much of what I read comforted me as God’s great love for mankind was discussed within the pages.
Even in the unknown "desert" atmosphere of medical facility, God is there.
