“Love Never Fails” I Corinthians 13


Love Never Fails

It
was a busy 
morning, about 8:30, when an elderly

gentleman
in his 80’s arrived to have 
stitches removed from his thumb.

He
said he was in a hurry as he had an 
appointment at 9:00 am.

I
took his vital 
signs and had him take a seat,

knowing
it would be over an hour

before
someone 
would to able to see him.

I
saw him looking at his watch and

decided,
since I 
was not busy with another patient,

I
would evaluate his wound.

On
exam, it was 
well healed, so I talked to one of the

doctors,
got the needed supplies to 
remove his sutures and redress his
wound.

While taking care of 
his wound, I asked him if he

had
another doctor’s appointment

this
morning, as 
he was in such a hurry.

The gentleman told me no,
that he

needed
to go to 
the nursing home to eat breakfast

with
his wife. I inquired as to her 
health.

He
told me that she had
been there 
for a while and that she

was
a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease.

As we 
talked, I asked if she
would be

upset
if he was a bit late. 

He 
replied that she no longer knew

who
he was, that she had not

recognized
him in 
five years now.

I
was surprised, and asked him,

‘And
you still go every 
morning, even though she

doesn’t
know who you are?’ 

He smiled as he 
patted my hand and
said,



‘She
doesn’t 
know me, but I still know who she is.’
