think i need to go lie down now.
i'm assuming your friend will wear pants to work and wash her hands...???????????
you should visit the web site www.iands.org. these people had near death experiences, and at times, they speak about death bed visions. i have not seen any patients experience this, however, i have met numerous people who have had ndes. a fascinating phenomenon, and i believe in all of them wholeheartedly.
sorry you are offended, but you seem very sure that your beliefs are written in stone.
i was suggesting that over the course of a lifetime, individuals have been known to reconsider their outlook when presented with additional data. i certainly did. not all knowledge can be disected by the scientific method.
wish you the best on the journey.
i second that motion!!
we christians don't think we're anything special--but that our boss is! not our call to judge anyone's heart but our own. keep right on being a lovable guy....just keep an open heart and mind.
but that doesn't mean i have to believe they are supernatural in origin.
okay, i have got to tell my favorite story from my l-o-n-g year as a don at a 120 bed snf...
i was pretty new, and was walking down a patient hall when a light came on. went in to answer it, the resident needed help to the toilet. got him comfy, handed him the callbell, told him to call when he was done.
continued down the hall, reaching the nurses' station about the same time the same resident rang again. it was mid-afternoon, the meds were all passed, treatments done, and the cna's were clearing out the late lunch trays. nurses were charting and chatting.
i looked at a nurse, and said , "that's mr. jones. he needs help off the commode."
she looked at me like i was crazy, and said ,"i don't do that, i'm an rn. get a cna to go.":angryfire
i drew myself up to my full 5'4'', stepped right up to her, held up my badge and said "hi. we haven't met. i'm blue ridge, rn.....bsn.......don.....
...and if i can get him on the toilet, you can go get him off!"
need i add that we had a few personnel changes after that.
some of the nurses didn't care for my "attitude", but the cna's threw me a tearful goodbye party when i left!!:d
