Forgotten Hands

Nurses are to their patients,
as Angels are to God’s work.

They intervene in times of danger,
to provide protection.

They guide when darkness clouds the way,
to assure safety.

They comfort when life’s difficulties
become to great…
to instill peace.

Nurses like Angels minister
unto the one in need.

May we learn to acknowledge their presence.
