There are two days left in this month, a month in which emotions ran from excitement over the new year and a fresh start, to all the emotions related to the inauguration. There are a lot of weary and burdened people in the country right now.

May those of you weary from grief, whether it is the loss of a loved one or something else, find rest this week.

Weekend Wisdom: Carry One Another’s Burdens

This coming week, in our small group,  we will be discussing chapter 7 of “Love one another, 20 practical lessons” by Don McMinn. The chapter is entitled “Carry One Another’s Burdens.  The related Bible verse is:

Carry each other’s burdens

Galatians 6:2

Here are some quotes pertaining to carrying both your own and another person’s burden.

The practice of patience toward one another, the overlooking of one another’s defects, and the bearing of one another’s burdens is the most elementary condition of all human and social activity in the family, in the professions, and in society.

Lawrence G. Lovasik 

The fellowship of true friends who can hear you out, share your joys, help carry your burdens, and correctly counsel you is priceless.

Ezra Taft Benson 

Carrying a grudge is a heavy burden. As you forgive, you will feel the joy of being forgiven.

Henry B. Eyring 

Remember, the burden of sorrow is doubled when it is borne alone.

Goran Persson 

Every burden is a blessing.

Walt Kelly 

(Tomorrow: Chapter 8 “Forgive one another”)

Weekend Wisdom – Happy Sunday!

Good Morning,

I am under the weather and have been since yesterday.  So I thought today’s Weekend Wisdom needed to be quotes containing the word “sun.”

Enjoy and may your day be sunny even if it is raining.

It is so small a thing to have enjoyed the sun, to have lived light in the spring, to have loved, to have thought, to have done.

Matthew Arnold

Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.

Samuel Smiles

The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.

Galileo Galilei
