Bob became bedridden. One morning as I sang and played for him in his room, he blurted out, "When you give me music, I don't feel my pain." Our eyes met. I could hardly continue singing, but I caught my breath and tried not to interrupt the music.
Another morning he shared stories abut his military service during World War II; how he was on a destroyer in the Pacific. I realized our relationship had deepened. He trusted me. And I also realized playing and singing music for him was something more than just music. It was ministry.
