  • Even Saints are Human

    When I start to feel the weight of the world on my shoulders....I like to remind myself of this quote attributed to Mother Theresa:

    "I know that God will never give me more than I can handle......I just wish He didn't trust me so much"

    If she were alive and texting, she probably would follow that quote with "LOL"

    The human condition can get pretty heavy sometimes...But we were given very broad shoulders. When we stand together as human beings and put our shoulders together, we can lighten the load for each other.

    On this Forum I have seen people from the USA, Canada, UK, Israel., New Zealand, India, Australia, Iceland, China and other countries
    Standing shoulder to shoulder to lighten each other's load.

    God is not just in Heaven or in a specific church or a specific religion. He is in us. He is in that human being standing next to you. The one needing a shoulder as well as the one offering a shoulder.

    It is our choice everyday to bring lightness or darkness into the world.... Both an honor and a responsibility

    Wishing all who touch this forum Love and Light
