Tonight I hung out with my family. 3 generations playing Pictionary, the Dictionary game, eating snacks and watching The New Years Eve movie. (That movie is quickly becoming a tradition with us.) Now, as midnight and a new year approaches, the teens are off with their friends and we're counting down the minutes to a brand new year. New beginnings after a rather challenging year.
So from all of us to all of you...
May your new year be full of big dreams, hard work and answered prayers. God bless you in 2015!

Miracles in the ER
Robert D. Lesslie, M.D.
I have a fascination with medical stories. My sister just rolls her eyes whenever I find a new medical documentary that I find fascinating and HAVE to watch. The human body is so complex, that despite all that mankind and science has done to discover it's intricacies, there is still so much to learn. On the flip side, with each new thing we learn, it's easier to see how magnificent and grand God's hand is in creation. SO, with that fascination in mind, I jumped on Dr. Lesslie's book with intrigue.
Each chapter shares a story of a patient or co-worker he's been connected with. Some truly are what many would call miraculous. Others, may not seem like miracles, but the love and truth that is learned throughout the lesson is just as moving. I have to say that whether they would all be considered miracles or not, is not the point. The bigger picture is that through tragedy, drama, loss and more, a bigger picture was maintained and the heart and compassion of those involved were not lost. That's hard to find these days and it was great to be reminded.
