3 Angels in Arizona by Craig West

Lorena, Jennifer and Lavay - the names of a few nurses, or should I say angels, in Tucson, Arizona.  Over the weekend my father was rushed to the hospital with chest pains.  A couple of years ago he had open heart surgery, so you can imagine the instant fear that sometimes envelops when anything as much as an ‘ouch’ comes from good ‘ol Pops. 

I want to say thanks to Lorena, Jennifer and Lavay, and to all the nurses who work long, thankless hours, and do their best to keep us and our loved ones calm, simply providing a presence that we usually don’t realize is there until much later.  I believe it’s the presence of the Holy Spirit, the ultimate Comforter. 

This latest situation got me thinking: isn’t it wonderful how there are men and women, all over, whose job is to be with our loved ones in their time of need?  All year round they’ll be there waiting.  Strangers who offer comfort, support and dignity in difficult times.  Strangers like Lorena, Jennifer and Lavay who aren’t strangers any more.

Good news!  My father is fine and back home.

And now today, I find out that my brother is in the hospital in Frankfurt, Germany, horribly sick and undergoing tests.  Am I fearful?  I’d lie if I said I wasn’t a little.  Am I thankful?  Yes.  Not for his affliction, but for the belief that once again God has positioned certain men and women around my younger brother.  And, he will be comforted by a few nurses - or should I say angels?

Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2
