Each week we are asking people to share their stories of seeing God in the everyday. Here is mine! No thunder bolts, just the still small voice of calm, amidst a storm!

A few weeks ago, I had to make an unexpected trip to the Respiratory Assessment Unit at the City Hospital, and to be honest wasn't feeling that great aside from not being able to breathe!

I don't know the City hospital that well, and after being dropped off, managed to the miss the door to the Assessment unit! I staggered, (as my asthma was having a moment) to a Helper, dressed in a bright yellow tabard, and showed him my referral letter. 

He asked " Are you ok?" Me , shaking my head  whispering. "Asthma". He told me to wait there, and within a flash appeared with a wheelchair. He looked at me and said, " Yep i can see it's not something you want, however at the moment you need this wheelchair."

He pushed me the whole length of the hospital, he was a retired Head Teacher, we talked, and shared life. 

I saw it as a bit of heaven touching earth- seeing God in the ordinary. It gave me  a sense of peace while I struggled  to breathe.
