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 your hands you hold the future
Of the hearts you teach each day
And in honor of your calling
There's a tribute far away

Far above the stars of heaven
In a place where angels dwell
On a palace wall of ivory
Are the letters "HDL"

And these letters hold a meaning
Known to angels far and wide
A reflection of your teaching
One the angels hold with pride

For there is no higher calling
That a teacher can impart
Then to pass along the knowledge
That will birth a caring heart

So each day within the heavens
Angels gather and recite
Every letter, and its meaning
In a song of pure delight

H is honor your exhibit
Every day within your role
As you portray nursing practice
As you meet each nursing goal

D is for your dedication
For your efforts never tire
To instill within your students
Higher standards to aspire

But beyond your dedication
There's a gift you freely share
As you teach each nursing student
To excel in nursing care

And this gift is where your heart is
Where the letter "L" takes place
Where success in all your teaching
Brings together heaven's grace

It's the love you show in practice
That does yield a caring heart
That produces future angels
And on earth God's love impart

So upon a wall of ivory
Diamond letters shine in pride
A reflection of your teaching
For all time it will abide.

A special thank you to all Nursing Instructors, everywhere, for without them, this tribute would not be possible.
