Heavy burdens

Visiting our dear family Matthew and Annie in Kotigiri India a few years ago we watched these men building a road up the mountain.
These tribesmen had some amazing ability to carry very heave loads. Look at this man carrying this rock on his back. It has already been shaped to fit into the roadway. He carried this with a smile.
For him, what for me would be impossible, was possible and even carried with a smile.

what could we carry for a friend whose burden right now seems too heavy? what could we lift from the shoulders of a stranger? what could we do for the world around us that carries so heavy burdens that war and killing seem the only relief?

let's pray that today each of us can take the burden from someone we encounter and then lift it up to God. For with God all things are possible.

God abide
