PARISH NURSE'S CORNER
Some thoughts from our Parish Nurse:
This is a Post from a Tennessee Pastor
I trust in the Lord…and I wear my seat belt.
I trust in the Lord…and I wear a motorcycle helmet.
I trust in the Lord…and there are enough life jackets in my boat for everyone on board.
I trust in the Lord…and I use oven mitts with really hot dishes.
I trust in the Lord…and I lock my house at night.
I trust in the Lord…and I have smoke detectors in my house.
I trust in the Lord…and I take my prescribed medicines.
I trust in the Lord…and I will follow the best guidelines to share the task of flattening the curve.
Acting with caution and wisdom does not indicate a lack of trust in God.
I trust in the Lord.
