A Helping Hand
For the last few days of my life I have been able to do a lot of service. Putting in fence, rolling bails of hay, and moving metal panels. The help I know was needed, and my heart was set in helping. It was hard work to do all that was asked of us. The metal poles were long and took a while to pound in, but the help of another made fast work of that job. The bail of hay was large but the help of others made moving easy. When four people surrounded the heavy metal panels, the lifting came with ease. Life was so much easier with the help of other people. Alone I could not have done all the work that was required, but with the help of others the work was made possible. We are all in need of that help in our lives. There are obstacles that will occur that will seemingly be impossible, but we don't need to worry. We have help. The great Savior of the world said, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and i will give you rest." We do not have to go through this world alone. God has given us special people that will be there in our time of need. We have been put into families so that we can have a friend. Families take care of each other and watch each others back. When we are away from our families we will ALWAYS have a Father in Heaven. He loves us all, He wants the best for us, He is willing to help us. Its my testimony that the lord loves us all, cares for our needs, and lets us have special people in our lives that will give a helping hand.
