Just a thought...


We all have crosses to carry in this lifetime...some are more visible than others...most of them are heavier than we let on...
While I was feeling myself bending under the weight of things recently, I realized that the Lord has already done this whole 'cross carrying' thing, so who better to ask for help with lightening my load, than the One who's already experienced, and overcome it?

Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.

~Matthew 11: 28-30 KJV

Thank you Michele, this is one of those scriptures that tug at my heart strings. How grateful I am to know there is always someone I can turn to and know that HE understands and can comfort me. Love my Savior...

PS...3 Nephi in the Book of Mormon recounts when the Savior visited the Americas after his resurrection. It makes for good reading!
