“I Could Feel It”

Holding hands in prayer

My patient had dementia

 

But never forgot God;

When we held hands to pray,

Our hands quietly and gently electrocuted one another.

When we had finished our prayer,

My patient responded in deep compose, eyes shut, “I felt it.”

Not knowing what had just happened, I looked at my patient and responded in amazement, “God is amazing.”

Thank you, God, for giving my patient and myself that incredible gift!
