Takin' Five on Friday - Together

This is what the third Friday in a row? I think I've set a record quite possibly.



Oh,  so many choices today.
I'm feeling the theme of community this week and I believe I'll take a leap in that direction.

My first thought is that "together we can do anything."

The simple care that many hands make light the work.  Rather than lugging a burden around alone, share it with someone else.  I don't mean to hand off the burden to someone else, but to ask for help.  If you're feeling lost and alone, drop to your knees and ask Your Father for some help.

It doesn't mean that He will take away the pain, hurt, loneliness but He will provide comfort in the best way He can, through His unconditional love.

When you're working on a project or having a stressful day there is always someone there to be a shoulder to lean on.  Be it a dear friend, family member, co-worker, fellow church member, another parent or even a stranger.  Every person in your life is there for a reason.  Put the request for help into God and He will provide everything you need.

Together, we (God and any one of us) can do anything!!


Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!


  1. One of the hardest things to do is to ask for help when you need it and then accept the help when it's given. Together we are so much stronger.
    Thank you for your post today.

    1. Yes, why is it so hard to ask for help? I actually find it hard to admit that I'm struggling with stuff. I'm growing and learning to admit that it is A-Ok to admit these things. I only hope I do well to equip my children with these lessons.
      Thanx so much for stopping by!!

  2. I'm more than willing to help others but I have such a hard time asking for help. You're blog has helped give me a bit of a different perspective. Thanks.

    1. I LOVE to give. I LOVE to do. I get so much out of helping others that I spread myself WAY TOO THIN sometimes. Then our house, routines and life will fall apart. That is when I have to remind myself that I can't do everything for everyone without admitting to my own weaknesses. What a great thing we have in being able to share our burdens as well. Thank you so much for stopping over and saying hello, it means so much to me.
      Have a blessedly beautiful week!
