Sebastian is only a small Teddy Bear
Yet, he is a symbol of one of the finest morality oaths ever sworn.
(prirum non nocere) Latin. THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH.
xx First of all I will do no harm.
This oath was for the preservation of all life from conception to the grave. It was originally sworn not for the purpose of ‘playing God’ but for working with God to restore, heal and give humanity HOPE.
No part of that oath included re-designing the human framework or pre-determining life’s pathway without God’s specific influence.
Today I pray for all the wonderful medical people who are caring for victims of this world-wide pandemic coronavirus.
May God’s Peace be with them ALL.
STRENGTH AND COURAGE.
Psm 85 verses 7,8,9 and 10 was my morning reading.
This Psalm was written as a Promise to Israel for when they accept Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.
How does this speak to us TODAY 2020 – We, the church, the Redeemed by the Blood of THE LAMB?
I will write it out in full in a second blog.
You are LOVED!
Blessings and Divine Presence in Comfort and Grace to you all.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
