For so many, walking through these days isn't always easy. It's tough actually. So many challenges. Such an uphill climb. Having friends and family to walk beside, through the challenges, makes life easier. When we get off balance, our friends and family often will notice first and can gently share with us their concerns. We know the scriptures, but honestly it isn't always easy to walk in the truth through difficult times, when the weight of the situation is heavy, the struggle is in our face and we are weary of the fight. I am SO thankful for family and friends who care and who point me to Jesus when times are really tough.

Amplified Bible (AMP)
2 Bear (endure, carry) one another’s burdens and [a]troublesome moral faults, and in this way fulfill and observe perfectly the law of Christ (the Messiah) and complete [b]what is lacking [in your obedience to it].

|Pink Cone Flower|
I struggle with the morning. I'm a night owl. However, I really long to be a morning person and open sleepy eyes when morning stretches her arms and yawns awake.
Pink and purple often washes across early skies while I dream. There are times when something wakes me and I peak out on my forested view of the world and see dew drops glistening on everything it touches. I see watercolor skies and a golden rising of a new day, smiling, though eyes are still blurry with sleep. For now, this is my reality.
Whenever my "morning" is, even if later than some, I long to give that new blossom to Jesus, an offering, fresh with dew, to sing to Him my thankfulness for another day. Thankful for His love, faithfulness, guidance, provision and ever hovering Holy Spirit
who is comfort divine,
more than enough for this day.
My voice shall you hear in the morning, O LORD;
in the morning will I direct my prayer unto you, and will look up.

Jesus is a warm, comforting light in darkest night.
Jesus is a piercing beam, sent to redeem
our souls, lost in the dark.
...for you were formerly darkness,
but now you are Light in the Lord;
walk as children of Light.
Ephesians 5:8 NASB
...but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.
1 John 1:7 NASB
Jesus is the Light and as we walk in Him, abide in Him and remain in Him, we will bear fruit.
We are not able to bear fruit on our own.
Children of light, according to the Hebrew dialect,
are those who are in a state of light, endued with knowledge and holiness.
