I wrote this on the last day of my sojourn in Hartford Hospital (Christmas Eve):
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” – Luke 2:14 ESV
Jesus, our Prince of peace, offers a peace unparalleled in human history -not something temporary or contingent on special conditions that are constantly changing or impossible to meet.
Recovering from a serious heart attack that almost cost me my life has been an obviously stressful thing. A week in the hospital can give anybody cause to reflect on their life, thereby doing the “would have, could have” routine and coming up short.
Being here in the cardiac care unit, hoping to be released today on Christmas Eve has opened my eyes to the precious nature of Christmas more than ever.
