Of Doctors, Nurses and Nannies

There is a growing "conspiracy" here in Manila for middle and upper class mommies to "dress" their children's nannies in nursing scrubs! Most spas and health centers also choose to have their staff dressed in cheap scrubs too.

Where is the problem then? Well, now it is hard to figure out the nannies and spa attendants from nurses and doctors. They all wear scrubs! Go to a mall where there is a proliferation of young families with nannies in tow. These nannies are easy to spot for they wear the usual plain pants and colorful printed tops nursing uniforms.

There should not be a problem here as surely anyone is free to wear what he/she wants to wear. The problem is in the fact that doctors, dentists and nurses wear scrub suits too. D1 is a doctor while D3 is a dentist. They wear scrubs. One time we all met at ATC for dinner. Since they both came from work they were still wearing their scrubs. Ethan was with us and he chanced upon one of his classmates and his family. The young family had a baby and nanny with them. When they left, we all burst out laughing as the nanny was wearing the exact shade of scrubs that D1, the anesthesiologist, was wearing!

Reflection for Today

What God Calls You


“And the angel of the LORD appeared to him and said to him, ‘The LORD is with you, O mighty man of valor’ ”
(Judges 6:12, ESV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

In scripture, God called Gideon a mighty man of fearless courage. Now Gideon looked around and said, “God couldn’t be talking about me. I come from the poorest family. I’m the least one in my father’s house.” Gideon saw himself as weak, defeated, and not able. But God saw him as strong, confident, and being more than a conqueror.

The question is are we going to believe what God says about us, or are we going to believe what we feel, what we think, or what the circumstances look like? You may feel weak today, but God calls you strong. You may feel like a victim, but God calls you a victor. You may be afraid, but God calls you confident. You may be in debt, God calls you prosperous. You may be sick, God calls you well. You may be addicted, God calls you free. You may feel inadequate, but God calls you well able.

Today, get into agreement with God. No matter what the circumstances look like, you’ve got to dig your heels in and say, “God, I agree with what You call me. I’m free, forgiven and healed in Jesus’ Name!”


Father God, thank You for loving me and calling me Your own. I choose to receive Your Word which is life, health and strength to me. Fill me with Your peace and wisdom. I set my thoughts on You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen
