Wherever I go, ‘I AM’ is there.

- Christian Science Nurse Notes

Perhaps the most important thing I can do for a patient, as a Christian Science nurse, is to bear witness to the presence of God. A poem by Katherine Collins (no relation to me) has been a model to me for how to do this:

An Aspiration

Others may be art glass
    Of rainbow hue;
I choose to be a windowpane
For the sun to shine through.
   A clear pane,
   A clean pane—
Is what I would be—
Unconcerned with temperament
   And personality.
I would have Love shine through me,
So that my friends would say,
Not, “What a lovely pane of glass!”
   But “What a lovely day!”
—The Christian Science Monitor, April 26, 1940
