Better Together...

 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 

Let’s share and bear together
For living’s gray-gold blends
Are easier to weather
And celebrate, with friends

Forbid any should suffer
Or rejoice all alone
But let love’s beauty buffer
Each other’s grin or groan

We all slip, trip and stumble
And sometimes need a hand
To keep us kindly humble
And help each other stand

  1. My, this is tender and inspired.

    1. thank-you...nothing like a little slip-trip-stumble resulting in a sprained ankle to remind one how we all need a helping hand sometimes;-)

  2. So true. One of my favourite verses..
    It's a beautiful paradox how in carrying other's burdens; ours get lighter.
    Happy Thursday!
