The date: September 5, 2007. The buzz was in the air with the renaming of St. Vincent Children’s Hospital, and word had spread that Peyton Manning was going to be there. As one of his many supporters, I availed myself the opportunity to see him in person. Riding my motorized scooter to the designated location in the hospital, I realized that there was no way I could see him with all the people standing in front of me.
When the ceremony began wrapping up, a man dressed in an outside security uniform asked those of us in the interior hall to move to the side. Within a few minutes, Peyton Manning not only walked right beside me but also shook my hand! As the phrase goes, I was “at the right place at the right time!”
“Being at the right place at the right time.” This phrase involves both our patients and we as associates. Our patients come through our hospital doors after critical incidents to receive our healing touch, and we offer service to them within only a moment’s notice. So, as the Great Physician intervenes, trust that He places each of us where we need to be in His time.
O Great Healer, help us to follow You, so we may be in the right place at the right time. In Your name I ask this, Amen.
