Following the true life story of life, love, faith and hope I have written about the last several posts has a way of giving life a different perspective. I really enjoy football, especially the playoff season we are in currently. Somehow the significance of a bunch of guys running around with a ball, though still fun to watch isn’t nearly as important as what is happening in two small rooms at Duke Medical Center and the unfolding story of what God is doing around the world as a result. I don’t know how many times during last night’s game I got up to see if there had been any updates posted on Nate’s blog http://www.cfhusband.blogspot.com/. I don’t know how many times I had serious lapses in concentration on the game and found I was thinking about and praying silently for Tricia and Gwyneth. I started wondering about the Scripture that says, "seeing the crowds He was moved with compassion." I think the everyday involvement, personal involvement in the real life struggle with people is where true compassion is birthed. I know I haven’t cared this much about too much of anything for several years. My perspective has been altered, I hope for good!
