It’s 1:25am on my day off and I’m trying to stay up so tomorrow I’ll sleep late in preparation for staying up all night at the hospital.
The first two shifts were interesting. I remember why I didn’t miss hospital nursing. I also recall what I love about caring for newborns and their mom’s and families. It’s not all Leave It To Beaver out there. In fact, I don’t think there’s a single Leave It To Beaver family having babies anymore. But it’s great opportunity to teach, encourage, value life, and be a blessing.
I don’t want to be a complainer. I want other people to leave working with me as a nurse feeling uplifted, and helped, not criticized and dumped on. It’s a shame how many people come to work complaining about the work they have to do.
James has got most of the upstairs bathroom finished. Just needs drywall, paint and a shower door. Next project on the list is knocking out a wall separating the upstairs bedroom from the living room. That will create a larger living room and reduce the house from being a 4 bedroom to being a 3 bedroom.
I read this today in a daily Bible reading plan I’m working through:
But Sihon the king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him, for the LORD your God hardened his spirit and made his heart obstinate, that he might give him into your hand, as he is this day. – Dueteronomy 2:30 (emphasis added by me)
It caught me. God hardened him so that God could give him into his people’s hand. God made it hard for his people, so that God could be the one who very obviously gave them victory over such hardness.
Hmmm. Something to think about next time I wish someone or something wasn’t so hard.
