A Little Bit About a Lot of Things
Posted by MDViews on January 1, 2013
I turned 60 recently. So, maybe it’s time for a few truisms I’ve picked up through the years. Here goes.
God is faithful even though I am not.
Grandchildren add unspeakable joy to my life.
God blessed me with a brother who is my best friend–my salvation in so many ways.
I love my children desperately and when they hurt, I hurt.
Most people I know don’t realize how lazy I am because I work hard at my work.
Nothing in this world causes more heartache than failed relationships.
Working with like-minded doctors and staff blesses me every day.
Hearing a baby’s hear beat always makes me smile.
The older I get, the more precious and wonderful it is to hear a newborn baby take that first breath and cry.
My energy level has declined significantly as I’ve aged.
I cherish the role of doctor, surgeon and birth attendant.
I love to write because writing is just thinking on paper.
I carry deep sorrow and regret about my failings as a Christian, a husband, a father and a doctor.
God is always faithful to forgive.
I pray every day for strength to persevere to the end, to finish well, to honor God and to leave a legacy of faith.
I love ice cream. Dying with a quart of chocolate Dairy Queen and a spoon in my hand is my dream.
