Has anyone ever shown you a close-up picture of a familiar object, asked you to guess what it is, and then, a few moments later, revealed the a picture of the whole object, causing you to sit back in amazement? As we focus on caring for both the patients and their loved ones, each of us can tend to oconcentrate on our own area of expertise in the provision of care, disregarding the other needs that require addressing—whether consciously or unconsciously. May not just this hour but all future hours we serve here be a time where we can begin reflecting on the whole picture of care!
Lord, You are the Potter, and You see the whole picture for all Your children. Mold our perspectives into Yours. In Your name we pray, Amen.
