Miracles often are produced by the words we say, but often times they come just from who we are.
Witness the following miracle story from Chaplain Carl Caffrey in our Cleveland TN Facility:
I was making rounds one morning when our RSM’s flagged me down, and said— “Chaplain, please come to the Gym and speak/pray with one of our new residents.”
Our new resident’s name was Sam – and Sam was REALLY down and was not responding to any promptings to engage in his much needed therapy. I came up to Sam and said “Hey, my name is Carl and I am the chaplain,” as I reached out my hand.
As soon as I said the word “chaplain” – he began to break down and cry.
I prayed with Sam right then and there and I listened to his pain and to his painful story – pain that came from more than just his broken neck. Sam’s countenance literally changed from that telling and outpouring of himself to both me and especially to God at that moment. After that, the therapy team noticed a tremendous change in his demeanor.
God is at work, to be sure! Thank God!
