Long ago, I stopped searching for that elusive, perfect healthcare
provider. During my career as a CIA analyst, I used Aetna and Kaiser
Permanente. And then, after 33 years, I retired with Blue Cross, Blue
Shield and MEDICARE part B, which carried me throughout my ten years
as a math educator and band director. Today, my wife, Rosemary, and I
are owners of a breakthrough business, named MUSIC & MATH MASTERS
Let me share something that truly boosts my faith. Lately I have
realized that the greatest benefactor for healthcare is still largely
misidentified. In our contemporary culture, care is one of the
primary attributes of God''s eternal power and authority constantly
So I coined the term, Godlicare. From the very beginning the Creator
instituted Godlicare as an integral and fundamental component of His
enduring love, handiwork, and workmanship.
Obamacare is just one of a myriad of benefits available to a Godlicare
policyholder. You may doubt this assertion, but not me. Since I
wasn''t privileged to be born in a hospital, God provided my mother a
mid-wife who received little compensation other than to choose my
middle name (which I seldom use). Godlicare was manifested in various
forms during my early childhood. One that I recall vividly was my
grandmother''s favorite remedy -- a tablespoon of castor oil. Yuk!
This, believed it or not, was grandma’s signature trademark which she
bestowed on someone of my upbringing. Now as I approach 70, God has
provided me a general practitioner and Rosemary to keep me going.
Times have changed. Pharmaceuticals and doctors are prominent among
healthcare professionals. Other are involved, however, like those
working in nursing homes, assisted-living facilities, family
caregivers, government and privately owned healthcare systems and even
first responders. These are just some of the people who help make our
lives better. While Americans look at them differently, my tendency
is to focus on God''s amazing love and care for us. First Peter 5:7b
reiterates, "for He careth for you.” Obviously there are readers of
this article who can substantiate how blessed they are to be enrolled
Godlicare is my simplistic way to describe God''s amazing sphere of
influence over my life. You will never hear me complaining about
Obamacare or ridiculing our veteran’s healthcare system or demeaning
other advantages we now receive. I have learned early on, not to be
dismayed whatever betide, God will take care of you.
If you desire compassion, concern, comfort, and care throughout your
lifetime, you will find no better Provider than Godlicare.
