A thought and a prayer for Hillary Rodham Clinton

 

Spare a thought for Hillary Rodham Clinton, the current if ailing Secretary of State. She is the most-traveled of America’s top diplomats, having set a record that will be hard to match as she jetted over the globe as President Barack Obama’s chief representative to foreign governments. 
 
Secretary Clinton is now being treated in a New York hospital after a spell of illness that led to a fall in her home and a dangerous concussion. A blood clot in her head has caused her great pain, dizziness, blurred vision, and may even threaten her life. Her physicians, Drs. Lisa Bardack and Gigi El-Bayoumi, said of Clinton on December 30, “She will be released once the medication dose has been established. In all other aspects of her recovery, the secretary is making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family, and her staff.”
 
Clinton is now 65 years old and no longer in the midst of the vigorous youth that she enjoyed when she and her husband, the former President Bill Clinton, came roaring into Washington in the 1980s after defeating the seemingly undefeatable President George H.W. Bush. Yet she retains enough vigor that she is still one of the most popular, and controversial, members of the Obama candidate and one who has long been a contender for the presidency.
 
Regardless of what many think of her politics, especially with regard to the lives of the unborn, one must recognize her devotion to service of her country and even her concern for the less fortunate. Spare a prayer for Hillary Rodham Clinton and that she may experience the physical and spiritual healing that come only with reconciliation with God who, as Love Himself, ordains all things for the good.
