I received two calls within minutes of each other this morning.
The first was from a friend whose adult son had been
transferred to Cleveland Clinic after one of two heart valves recent
recently replaced had developed trouble.
His surgery would be tomorrow.
The second was an elderly friend confined to his room in
a local nursing home.
He was waiting for his shower which had been scheduled for 10:00.
Of course, he'd been ready since 9:30, and he was still waiting
at 10:30. "It's hard to be patient," he explained apologetically.
Thinking about the two calls,
I thought of their importance to each person.
In the grand scale of things, we might be tempted
to rank the severity or significance of the two higher or lower.
But weighed in the personal circumstances,
I recognize the importance of both issues--both calls.
More importantly, the Heavenly Father does--
He who knows and cares when a sparrow falls to the ground!
The Apostle Peter reminds us to cast ALL our cares upon Him
for He cares for you/me/us.
2 Peter 5:7
