Maundy Thursday

…dawns with me in a good deal of pain. Wednesday at That Place was hellish. The number of incoming patients was off the charts. We were shorthanded (as usual). I put in 11 hours of work. As a result the amount of running around that I did caused further damage to my right knee. My pain level this morning is at six. And I still have a 10 1/2 hour shift pull.

I hate my job. I hate how my life is right now.

And yet “God so loved the world that God gave the only begotten Son.”

And yet “The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve and give his life as a ransom for many.”

And yet Jesus said, “I have given you an example that you should do as I have done.”

If he could wash his disciples feet and go to Golgotha, I can go to this hellish job in pain and find a way to stay compassionate.
