PostSubject: The Other Doors   Fri 6 Feb - 19:26

The Other Doors

Our 4 year old
son has some fairly serious health problems, so we are "frequent
fliers" at the local children's hospital. Two weeks ago, our son was
there for several days having surgery.


As stressful as that was
for us, my visits to that hospital almost always leave me feeling
grateful. Why? Because of "the other doors."


As I walk the
corridors of that hospital, I pass doors leading to many different
departments. I pass the department where surgeons reconstruct
children's faces. I pass the department where specialists treat
children who have been tragically burned. I pass the department where
children with cancer spend their childhoods battling a disease that
terrifies most adults. Every day, people walk through those doors. I
keep walking.


Occasionally, I walk through a ward, past the room
of a dying child. I look in at the child, unconscious amid a mass of
tubes and machines. I see the family, staring blankly into space,
grieving for what is to come. I keep walking.


On the fourth
floor, I pass the "catacombs" where parents with children in ICU watch
their days and nights stretch into weeks and months, hoping against
hope for good news. I keep walking.


It's late one evening, and I
walk to the waiting room. Only one family remains, and their doctor
arrives from surgery. He begins to tell them about the patient's
injuries....a shotgun blast, self-inflicted ....massive facial
damage.... a dozen more operations to come....a lifetime of
disfigurement...a lifetime of asking "why?" I sit, half-listening,
considering the doors, this family will face in the years ahead.


I
stood up. I walk back to the preschool ward, to the one door I seek.
Behind this door, our son is slowly recovering from surgery. And in a
strange way, I am grateful for the "situation" that we live with.


Because there are a hundred other doors in this place that are far worse. And we could just as easily be in one of those rooms.

As you pray for strength to open the doors you face, be sure to thank Allah for the doors he has spared you.

A great story that really deserves reading.
It's the will to triumph that keeps us up challenging our hard situation.
Thank you , madam

A good teacher must be able to put himself in the place of those who find learning hard
