Other Poems by David Vanderpool

I spent a considerable amount of time in the hospital and came to greatly appreciate the wonderful care I received by the nursing staff and health care workers.  I also came to realize that these people are very much under-appreciated.  I wrote this poem and made it into a bookmark as a way of thanking and encouraging those people who cared for me.  I also give it to the nursing staff and health care workers that I see everyday as a result of my involvement with the patients at a local facility where I minister as part of the chaplaincy.  If there are any of my fellow poets who would like to use this poem, please feel free to do so.

About the Poet
I am 58 years old and have lived in the Winona Lake area of Indiana for 16 years with my wife and children. I have written poetry for many years and use it primarily in personal ministry. For most of the past two years I have been recovering from cancer, something that God has used to impact my life in remarkable ways. I wrote a series of poems about the emotional and spiritual struggles that accompany having an illness like cancer. I used these to encourage people I met while going through kemo and radiation therapy. Since then, I have used them to minister to many people who struggle with cancer. I work with the chaplaincy in the healthcare wing of a local retirement village near my home where two of my three daughers also work. My wife often accompanies me and we find it very rewarding to be involved in the lives of the people who live there. My website address is http://callofissachar.com (Temporarily inactive)
