"gloves, goggles, masks, scrubs, hand sanitizer, bug spray, sun screen, headlamp, Bible"
This got me to thinking about all the ways the Bible could be part of my personal protection and of course I began to think of the story of Job. And all the other tales of suffering in the scriptures. Phrases like "theology of suffering" and "the meek shall inherit the earth" and "but for the grace of G-d go I" are flooding my thoughts.
Six am flight tomorrow morning. I am packing my Harriet Lane Handbook of pediatric care, the "bible" we all depended on as residents.
