Fam Pract Manag. 1999;06(8):13

To the Editor:

I never lost the joy of family practice in the first place, and that is because of my faith in God and my ability to allow him to be my ultimate, eternal source of joy, peace, hope and encouragement.

I feel blessed to wake up every morning and go to the office where I can allow God to work through me to touch the lives of the patients I see each day. The impact I see him having on the lives of my patients through my work makes the various difficulties that we face in medicine today seem trivial.
