7:00 am this morning the phone rings - one of Aaron's patients was "primed" and ready to deliver her child. He rushes out the door, getting ready quicker than I've ever seen...and if you know Aaron, it really takes a lot to get him going in the mornings---he is not a morning person by any means!
Somewhere around noon, as Aaron is in his clinic, a patient comes in, needing physical and spiritual help. In the midst of helping her physical concerns, he addresses her emotional and spiritual well-being as well. The doctor visit ended with Aaron and his patient praying as she accepted Jesus into her life, asking the Holy Spirit to fill her and to help her lead a life different from the one she had led in the past.
10:00 pm this evening - 10 or so minutes ago - the phone rings again, another baby ready to come into the world, needing Dr. Aaron's help. He was out the door within a minute of the call, ready to "bookend" his day with a second baby. And, although the post says "Jesus in the Middle" I can't help but acknowledge His presence throughout the day---in the middle of everything, before and after every breath that we take, sustaining everything until tomorrow turns into eternity.
