It IS horrible. I never imagined the frequency of death or violence that such a large hospital hosts. But....how can I explain the experience of standing with another human in those thin moments where life changes forever, hearts are broken and love is intense. How can I convey the honor of being, holding, and crying with someone in those moments of pain and need.
It is a horrible honor. And for this year at least, it's our horrible honor.
He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. Psalm 91:15
