You have worked real hard and studied and remembered how the body is made and recalled that God's handmade us, and just how we are wonderfully made. I’ll be praying for your hands that God will bless them as they touch your patient's with a healing touch. I will be asking God to give you wisdom and to bless you to others that they would see Christ through you. Continue to follow where God leads and keep being a blessing to others. Love you dear!
