Her eyes shut, and her hand went limp in mine. She was gone. I looked at the place to which her eyes had been directed but could see nothing. Tears ran down my cheeks as I stood there in the quiet, dimly lit room. Then I realized I was standing on hallowed ground because the Lord had just been in the room. I wanted so badly for her to open her eyes one more time and tell me what he looked like, but she was gone. She was now healed and at the right hand of the Lord in heaven. I kissed her on the cheek and whispered goodbye. Then for the first time, I thanked God for this job. I finally understood what my purpose was. I had just walked my first patient to the edge of heaven and handed her off to the Lord. I did not know it at the time, but God had only just begun to show me what he wanted me to learn from this journey.
