Angels among us. When Chaplain Hazel Thomas was approached by Church Publishing seeking contributions for an upcoming book, she knew just where to look! By day Jamie Rivera is an Executive Assistant on our Texas Health Fort Worth campus; but after hours, she is also a published author with multiple books to her credit. Sharing a common theme of hope, inspiration and encouragement, her writing seemed a natural fit - and indeed, one of her poems was selected for inclusion into this new book, titled Prayers and Blessings for Healthcare Workers. A global collection of interfaith blessings, prayers and poems, the text has been especially created to minister to healthcare workers, all of whom have been uniquely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. "I have been in the medical field since I was 16 in several different roles, beginning at the bedside. My heart goes out to all disciplines in what they are facing," says Jamie. "I truly pray to make a difference in someone's life every day ... the poem was written for them in an effort to help in any way that I could." Just released on August 17, the book quickly debuted as the #1 new title in Devotional and #2 new offering in Prayer. Learn more here https://amzn.to/3sLnGLz and find Jamie's poem below:
As the sun rises in the sky
Over us today and each day
Please wrap Your arms around us
And let Your love guide the way
Please give us a sense of peace, hope, love
And stamina to see this through
Please guide our hands and our minds
In each patient task we do
Please let us also remain aware
Of our co-workers during this time
To ensure that each of us is remaining well
Body, spirit and mind
