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.
