There were some concerns after my dad’s hospitalization and more tests to be done. I thought it would be a good idea to start praying a novena to Our Lady of Lourdes. My parents and I prayed the first one this morning after breakfast. My mom had a bottle of holy water from Lourdes, so we blessed ourselves with it. As soon as I finished making the sign of the cross, the phone rang. It was my dad’s primary care physician’s office. The nurse just happened to have my name. She asked how my dad was doing and if I was able to make any follow up appointments. She answered questions and helped me get things sorted out. I made several additional phone calls during the day getting things in order. She phoned again in the afternoon and we had another long conversation. She was very encouraging and I was so happy to have her help. It reminded me that God is present, taking care of us along the way.
I Found God today in a well timed, helpful phone call that reminded me of God’s continuous presence.
