Scripture of the Day

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.                    KJV (Joshua 1:9)


Nurses are more
Than people in white.
They are mediators,
between human suffering
and human wellness;
Where what they do
Goes far beyond
What is seen.

In the midst of crisis
You assess every case
Without even thinking
You react with grace

The yelling, the screaming,
The chaos at times
Is what you must balance
To ease many minds

Your goals are determined
You move with great speed
An Angel in action
For many a deed

There is no denying
The value you bring
To lives that are needing
A touch of true spring

As spring follows winter
To bear forth new life
So you to your patients
Relieving their strife

You see it's a wonder
From heaven above
Your presence in E.R.
To calm with your love

The fear and the anguish
That so many feel
When rushed to the ER
Their lives in a reel

For so many reasons
Your presence is known
From cubicle to cubicle
Your love is shown

And this is the reason
God called you to be
An Angel in crisis

         Intervening With Speed."

A special thank you to all Emergency Room Nurses, everywhere, for without them, this tribute would not be possible.
