Omnipresent Operation

She was afraid, horribly afraid.
Her husband stood at her side holding her hand
faithful as always, but
the time came for her to be wheeled away.
Her cancer surgery grew nigh. No further
could he advance, and she was alone.  But was she?
Had she not put her faith in One
who can be closer than a brother? As she closed her
eyes and silently whispered a prayer, the last
thing she remembered was feeling His sweet, powerful 
presence. Boldly He had entered where nobody
was allowed to come.
Oh, the perks of being invisible!

We're never really alone Carol, like the twist at the end. Hope you're well. Good luck. Tom

Thank you, Tom. We never have to be alone, but the decision is up to us. The Lord is as close as the mention of His name, if we will choose to call upon Him.

Thank you for your kind words, Panagiota! This poem is based on the testimony of a lady in our church who struggled with cancer. She is still having some health problems but is trusting in that Friend that sticks closer than a brother.
