Sometimes, when people find themselves in the hospital, a bit of levity is good medicine.

With complete ridiculousness and total lack of dignity, I offer this get-well greeting card.

My grandson calls me Pops. My rap fans call me. . . Popsicle.


Hey, has today not been goin your way, you’re in the hospital for some surgery?                             

It may be an unexpected situation, but you’re not alone and that’s cause for celebration.

How are you feeling? Has pain been stealing your physical peace and you’re looking for release?

I know it can hurt; it can sting like for real! I bet you scared and wonderin’ if you’ll heal.

You’re in a good place. That joint rocks. I’ve been laying down prayers for the skills of your docs.

So try not to worry and don’t be stressed cuz I’m confident your nurses are blessed.

I’m down on my knees begging the Lord please. . .

“Slap some grace on your child, make it now, not in a while

Send your spirit to cover that room. Pour abundant grace and dispel negative gloom.

Be in the body, but also the mind. Grant peace to endure this troublesome time.”

Now, your chaos is big but try not to fear it, because you are surrounded by the Holy Spirit.

In the book of Mark for the beggar Bartimaeus, Jesus recognizes faith and comes to be with us.

Be patient, have courage, it’s gonna take some time. But you ain’t alone and your soul is fine.

So count your blessing when you get up and you’re dressing.

Then before you lay down you’ll smile more than you frown,

even though you wearing a silly hospital gown.


46 They came to Jericho. As he and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” 48 Many sternly ordered him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” 49 Jesus stood still and said, “Call him here.” And they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take heart; get up, he is calling you.” 50 So throwing off his cloak, he sprang up and came to Jesus. 51 Then Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man said to him, “My teacher, let me see again.” 52 Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way.

Mark 10:46-52

In the opening welcome and introduction to this website, I shared the Scripture that inspired this online adventure, I Tim 6:20. This text is also the origination of the name; “Sacred Chatter.” However, my intent is not to be a singular voice. I invite your voice to be a part of the “chat” and I base this on another of my favorite Scriptures: Hebrews 10:24. “And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds.” I am considering how I can provoke love and good deeds in places beyond where I live. This is my attempt to enter into a Hebrews 10 conversation with you over social media.digitally. Now, I am interested in your feedback. Consider what provoking you can provide with your own Sacred Chatter.

What’s important to you? What really matters?

Add your voice in Sacred Chatter.

Love is ours to provoke. Good deeds are ours to sew.

That the wisdom of Hebrews 10 may flourish and grow.

Email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, they’re potential mediums for the Hebrews 10 plan.
