“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
I came across this picture last weekend. I think it’s a simple but powerful reminder of what we can be to one another if we just thought about it.
I am so very grateful for my friends who have helped and supported me through the tough times in my life. I remember those who helped when Jean had her miscarriages, those who supported us so well when dad and mum died . Losing my father while I was in Canada, miles away from my family was horrible, but I could not have been with nicer friends who were wonderful to me and helped me all they could. They knew when I needed to be alone and when I needed company and a chat! Losing my mother so soon after was almost too much to bear but we were surrounded by people who cared and wanted to ease the load. When I was in hospital last year there were those who brought us meals and came and tidied the house. Bearing one another’s burdens is a vital part of all of our lives but as Christians we have a great responsibility to see the need in others and reach out in love and support them.
Thank you to all those who have helped bear my burdens, you have inspired me to go out and make the world a better place.
