The Skies Of Houston

The skies of Houston are heavy laden with rain these days.
Don't get me wrong.  We have needed the rain...still need it.

But as I drove in to work this morning, the thought struck me as to how much these skies reminded me of my  own heart.

Heavy laden over...

                   ....a friend who lost her dad,
                   ....a friend who lost her husband,
                   ....another who is losing her son-in-law to cancer,
          employee who is battling his second type of cancer in less than two years,
                   ....families in pain,
                   ....marriages in crisis,
                   ....relationships broken,
                   ....illnesses that can't be explained, get the point.

All of this to say: if the Lord brings someone to your mind today, would you please take a moment to pray for them -- and perhaps let them know that you are thinking of them too.

After all, Galatians 6:2 instructs us to, "bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ." (NASB)  You and I might need someone to come alongside us one day soon.

Love you much!
