a hospital triptych

second left from the old
lift, three pink babies
are sound asleep.

two floors below, an old
woman tears to see her
mom who’s long been
gone.

inside the doctor’s office
a family of four awaits
results of cameras that
invaded their father
yesterday.

“To everything
there is a
season.” 

Ecclesiastes 3:1

      1. Oh I’ve missed you too!!! I’m doing well–just started going to a real church, instead of online!! It’s fabulous–the back story: I got a caregiver last November, she’s a Christian! She comes 2 days a week to help me–and she told me about her church in such glowing terms that we began to pray that someone would be able to drive me to services on Sundays (she cannot because the agency she works for calls it a “conflict of interest”). So I attended 2 weeks online–and then I received a phone call from a wonderful woman–God answered quickly! Next week I’ll also be going to a women’s bible study there–because the mother of this woman invited me, and she’ll drive me. This is all too exciting and wonderful to believe–God is So Good!

        The weather? Well, it’s almost Spring–so not too cold (no more snow), with both rainy and sunny days! How is it there?? If you still have my email address, you can fill me in on all that’s been happening with you!! I’m eager to catch up! Much love, Z (L) 💖

      3. I just imagine you running the world some day!! This new church I’m going to is multi-cultural which really excites me…I can’t wait for Sunday! I’ll be telling you all about it, especially once the women’s bible study begins 🙂
