May 12 - National Nurses Day
Probably never before has so much attention been drawn to the important work that nurses do. This COVID-19 pandemic has made all of aware and appreciate the work of a nurse! We are so grateful for their work.
This special day, National Nurses Day, was established in 1952; May 12 was chosen because it was the birthday of Florence Nightingale who was the founder of modern nursing.
Do you know any nurses or anyone who works in the medical field. Nurses work at nursing homes, clinics, medical offices, and even schools. They do very important work from taking temperatures to giving shots and medicines. I can think of several nurses (at various levels from CNA to RN) who attend our church. Can you think of any? Today would be a great day to send them a quick email or phone call to say thanks.
God uses medicine and people who have studies medicines and our bodies to bring healing to us. Sometimes he works through therapy, casts or splints, medicines, and medical machines like respirators to heal our bodies. Sometimes God does miracles and heals us without medicine. I've seen medical miracles, have you? Jeremiah 30:17 says, "But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,' declares the LORD". Do you know of anyone who needs healing from sickness or pain? Spend a few minutes today talking to God about healing, and thank Him for any nurse you know. And sometime today ask your parents to tell you of any medical healings they have seen.
