I love this. I'm going to send it to my pastor.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

“Friendship doubles our joy and divides our grief”
Treat every person with kindness and respect, even those who are rude to you.Remember that you show compassion to others not because of who they are but because of who you are.
I love that! That is exactly what I needed today (and everyday). Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

thanks for the message. I will be thinking about it every day, and try not to lean to one side. HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL.
I was thinking of it as us just leaning on God when we are having a down or hard time and he'd be there for us. I hadn't thought about it in terms of your last paragraph though, thanks for adding that part. It gave me a whole new way of looking at needing to lean on he Lord.

Thanks for sharing that... I'm going to think about it.
What a great way to start my day by reading a good message!
Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.
Every time I am asked to pray, I think of the old deacon who always prayed, 'Lord, prop us up on our leanin' side.' After hearing him pray that prayer many times, someone asked him why he prayed that prayer so fervently.
He answered, 'Well sir, you see, it's like this... I got an old barn out back. It's been there a long time; it's withstood a lot of weather; it's gone through a lot of storms, and it's stood for many years.
It's still standing. But one day I noticed it was leaning to one side a bit .
So I went and got some pine poles and propped it up on its leaning side so it wouldn't fall.
Then I got to thinking about that and how much I was like that old barn. I've been around a long time.
I've withstood a lot of life's storms. I've withstood a lot of bad weather in life, I've withstood a lot of hard times, and I'm still standing too. But I find myself leaning to one side from time to time, so I like to ask the Lord to prop us up on our leaning side, 'cause I figure a lot of us get to leaning at times.
Sometimes we get to leaning toward anger, leaning toward bitterness, leaning toward hatred, leaning toward cussing, leaning toward a lot of things that we shouldn't . So we need to pray, 'Lord, prop us up on our leaning side, so we will stand straight and tall again, to glorify the Lord. ''
