Day 236: The Doctor and his Wife

28 Nov

Sometimes when I write these posts, I must keep the details of the recipients lives private so that I may protect their identity, even though I might still want to convey how remarkable I feel that they are. That is the case with today’s couple. What they do for the patients in their practice, and for the members of the community, goes far beyond what is required.

They are the kind of folks that “do the right thing” simply because it is the right thing to do. As I searched for the words to describe my admiration of them, this Bible verse kept coming to mind:

“I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.”

These words say to me that this couple helps others regardless of who is in need or what that need might be. We are so fortunate that they have chosen to live and work in our town.

This evening I brought a warm Apple Pie to their office to thank them for their devotion to their patients and for the compassionate service that they extend to us all.
