The Ministry of John

While alone at Sacred Heart Hospital in Cumberland (LaVale), Maryland this morning, waiting for outpatient elective surgery and lots of miles away from my home in Falling Waters, West Virginia, a surprise visitor brightened my day and lifted my spirits.
John Cline, an old friend and faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) in the Cumberland area, knew that I was in the hospital, and he went out of his way to stop by to say hello and check on me.
Although others had offered to accompany me to the hospital, I had declined their gracious gifts of service, travel, time, and sacrifice; mostly because it just wasn't needful or prudent for them to do that.
Nevertheless, I was feeling just a bit forlorn and lonely when John approached me in the outpatient waiting room.
My life has been and continues to be full of marvelous blessings, many of which have been bestowed upon me through the selfless acts of service by humble men and women such as John Cline, a faithful friend of most infinite worth.
