Yet it was a cold and wintry time and his services were needed. He continued working through the night and then patients began arriving the following morning.

It was dark and drizzling when he returned to his home. He slowly trudged up the steps to his bedroom. He didn’t don his night clothes. Continue reading He shall give his angels charge over thee
