Shared Burdens

There is a proverb from some culture somewhere about how even a piece of paper is lighter when two people lift it. Or something like that. I think there is a profound depth to the idea of shared burdens. The people in this world I love the most are the ones with whom I have shared a burden.

Is it possible that God works intentionally with burdens? They are anchors for our souls, that keep us from drifting away. Today, I shared burdens. Some were mine, some belonged to others. But we shared them, emotionally, physically, however it is that we share a load.

At the end of this day, more has been accomplished than any one of us could do on our own. I am glad I can take the weight. I am glad others are willing to take the weight with me. I am grateful for shared burdens.

What are you blessed with today?

  1. Today has been one of those days where I sit back and look at my life, and think...Wow. How can I be downhearted, how can I complain, how can I be less than eternally happy in any aspect? I have so many blessings, I have so much to look forward to and to experience. My life has taken such a wonderful path, and I know that it's because Heavenly Father is watching over me. He always has, he always will. And he wants me to be happy. can I be unhappy, knowing that? Knowing that he loves me, that he is blessing my life?

    I am grateful today that I have the insight at times to be able to truly do as the Lord said: "Be still, and know that I am God."
