As I have noted in previous blogs it is my opinion that neurosurgeons are both large headed and humor impaired.
That’s okay with me. What they do day in and day out is very serious stuff. However, during our meeting this afternoon with Dr. Meyer I asked him about my cold…whether or not he was concerned. He replied “No, I’ll just wash my hands.” But he said it with a little smile which led Karla and me to think that he was taking a shot at a joke.
While we were walking through one of the large atriums at Mayo, there was a woman playing the grand piano and another man singing. As we looked around we had to wonder about the stories of each person that walked by.
Many were standing and listening, both on the ground level and a balcony. When the gifted singer was done singing Just a Closer Walk With Thee there was a rousing applause from all those present. After the applause subsided a woman from the balcony level yelled out to the singer and pianist “God bless you! I needed a Jesus song today.”
She said it not once, but at least four times, until someone finally passed the blessing on to the musicians. We too needed a Jesus song today…and tomorrow…and forever.
