Being at The James Place is honestly like a time warp, and this time warp is a blessing that I didn’t know that I needed. What I mean by this is that being here helps me view life at a different speed.
Coming from a work environment where three patients all had a list of meds due at the same time, a doctor was waiting to talk to you, and someone’s call light has been going off for five minutes was something that I was used to. However, being here has shown me the importance of slowing down and taking moments as they come and not to try and rush through to get the next task done. Jesus has shown me when life isn’t being lived at the speed of light. I have more time to listen to people, more time to understand their hearts, and more time to hear His voice.
The James Place is continuing to help refine me into the person that God desires me to be - a person that takes the time to greet everyone in the morning and time to carefully clean a scraped hand. This place, these people, this time... I’ll never forget.
