A Glimpse Of The Eternal

Just a few weeks after we were engaged, Ken was diagnosed with cancer.  One day, in the hospital, Ken was in so much pain that I couldn't bear to watch.  As I walked out of his room, I saw a woman pushing a cradle down the hall.

The woman didn't say a word, but she looked at me with such warmth in her eyes that I was drawn to her and the cradle.  However, as I looked down at the thin, pale child, I thought I was going to scream.

Then, suddenly, the child smiled at me - and that smile penetrated deep inside me and awakened me to a truth I desperately needed to know - for her, for me, and for Ken.  She was telling me, "My body is like this, but Spirit is alive in me, and I am joyous."

I understood that although the body is temporary, Spirit within is eternal.  Her smile gave me a glimpse of the eternal life that is in us all.

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
