It Takes wisdom to hear God call for change in our life

That's What Lisa Does

by Debi Pick Marquette


Some years ago I met her, when she married Greg, our friend

As neighbors it did not take long, for our two hearts to blend

And early on, when I was ill, she'd bring some meals to us

Like she does for others, cause, "that's just what Lisa does"

They're not too many nurses who could possibly come close

A sweet Angel of Mercy, all her patients say she glows

While working at two hospitals, she never makes a fuss 

Double shifts are normal, 'cause, "that's just what Lisa does"

Three years ago, her husband Greg, our friend had passed away

So Lisa, kids and grandchildren; for them I always pray

I know we all still wish, that it could be as it once was

Then Covid hit, she worked nonstop, 'cause, "that's what Lisa does"

A snowplow's drift had put her down, while jogging in November

Knocked her out and couldn't get up, the best she can remember

She's staying with her daughter, who's a nurse and such a plus

She'll recover from her surgery, 'cause "that's what Lisa does"

Now Lisa's not only my friend;, a dear sister in Christ

She says that God was giving her, some very good advice

More precious time for family, God's word she always trusts

   Her extra time will bless us all, 'cause "that's what Lisa does"



Sometimes God can talk to us softly and subtle to get his message across, but He used the force of a snowplow to slow down this woman who's selfless hard work and duty towards others, needed re~evaluation.
