For All Of Us

Dears Pals...I got this in my email this morning. It has helped me!
It will help you!
Love Terry

On His Shoulders
READ: Luke 15:3-7
He shall dwell between His shoulders. -Deuteronomy 33:12
Our family likes to hike, and we've had some grand adventures together. But when our boys were small, our enthusiasm caused us to walk too fast and too far, and their legs often grew weary. They couldn't keep up the pace, despite their determined efforts and our assurance that the end of the trail was just over the next hill.

"Dad," would come the plaintive request, accompanied by upraised arms, "will you carry me?" "Of course," I would reply, and hoist the child on my shoulders. He was not a burden, for he was little and light.

How often, like my children, I've grown weary, and the end of my efforts is not even in sight. I can no longer keep up or accomplish the task. But I am learning that I can turn with arms upraised to my heavenly Father, who walks beside me, and I can ask Him to carry me.

I know He will lay me on His shoulder as a shepherd carries the lamb that was lost (Luke 15:5). There He will joyfully carry me all day long, for I am little and light-no burden to Him. There I find rest, for "the beloved of the Lord shall dwell in safety by Him, who shelters him all the day long; and he shall dwell between His shoulders" (Deut. 33:12). - David H. Roper

Ask the Savior to help you,
Comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you-
He will carry you through. -Palmer

The God who holds the universe is the God who is holding you.

Dear Terry, thank you for caring and reminding.
Passing-Thru also has his own blog. I have been over there and just telling him I miss him.
I don't think he'll ever know just what a difference he has made in my life. June last year when my father died, passing-thru and the other Pilgrims held me up with your prayers.
Reading my name, highlighted and mentioned especially ; it meant so much.
Even if I am not a clever writer, I do pray a lot.
Every evening I lift passing-thru up in front of the Lord. He is being held by the Lord's arms. Oh, yes he is.
