Tonight, however, I was graced with a bit of why we're in our current holding pattern.
Apparently, there was a nurse in the ER that I needed to speak with.
Without divulging her story, I'll just say that I stand in awe at how God weaves people and lives and events together. This precious lady has been walking a difficult path for several years now. It's a path I happen to know personally very well.
The difference between her journey and mine, however, is that I had people around me who were supportive and encouraging and incredibly gentle with my heart. She doesn't have that.
So I got the privilege of stepping into that role for a short little while tonight. I got to listen and hug and be the hands and feet of Jesus to a beautiful, lost, grieving young woman.
Thank you, Lord, for that opportunity. It was soooo blessed.
