Tuesday 3/9/10 - "YESTERDAY AND TODAY"

"YESTERDAY AND TODAY"

When I choose to look at the happenings of my day with my spiritual eyes I see a beautifully rich and intricately woven tapestry of vibrant color created by God.

Yesterday began with turning my volunteer experience over to God as I drove to the hospital. I never know what awaits me. There are times when nothing very extraordinary seems to have happened, but even on those days I know He has been at work. Other times I am more aware of God's presence.

When Steve asked this morning whether anything memorable happened yesterday when I was visiting patients I immediately responded that I felt led to place my hands on two different women. Both were very receptive and one of them prayed for me after I prayed with her. This lady had breast cancer two years ago and now there are signs that it may have returned in her lungs. They also discovered a brain tumor that was going to be removed the next day. We talked. We prayed. I touched her head and back.

Another woman was in the hospital with pneumonia and she had severe arthritis. Her fingers were very painful. As we talked I held first one hand and then the other. She said they felt better and then she said she just felt so good. I placed my hand on her back. I have no idea what if anything physical occurred, but I do know something spiritual happened.

Tonight is the second of our Lenten services on the sacraments. Steve and I will be going and it will include a healing service with anointing with oil. I will be carrying nine people in my heart and prayers when I go. Four of them are people bloggers have requested prayers for. I will pray.

So yesterday and today have been beautiful days for me. I pray God blesses your day.

Prayers work..in all forms. I'm glad your hands were there for those hurting women. I don't think any of you walked away quite the same.

If I'm ever in a hospital I pray I meet someone like you.

Not only do you have healing hands, but healing words as well!
You have harnessed Love....

I am always so moved by your posts. They speak to me in ways similar to being in a meeting where I "hear just what I needed to hear." I related very much to your post from yesterday about limiting thinking and I shall come back often to your yesterday's post to read the prayer and quotes at the end to remind me. Thanks for sharing your wisdom.
