The Miracle of Support

"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him who is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up." Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 God has put us here to love one another, and support is a fantastic way to show your friends that you love them. Let's face it... we all fall down, but with the support of good friends, we get back up again. We try again. We persevere. I keep seeing a commercial on tv which says that being overweight is a huge problem for far too many people. It is a significant problem that needs to be addressed. We need to start taking better care of ourselves. We need to start now so that we are less likely to have health problems later in life. We CAN change things and have healthier futures. I am so glad that Sue A began a thread for CAST Team members to come and talk, share, and learn from each other. Even if you're in great health, you should come by snd offer support to others. I feel very passionately about this new thread. I believe it is an outlet that can be used to change lives. Please drop in to the new thread today, and often! Together, with God's help, we WILL overcome! OK, lol, I'm crying now...

Thank you so much for this post...I needed it: ) Which thread are you referring to? Is it the General Discussion or a new one?

Luella Newkirk said...

I am wondering too - is there a new thread - I'd love to check it out! Thanks for the encouragement to support one another.

Thanks, Jen. I'm having a very hard time reading your white on black font, but I think I got most of it.

I too have some difficulty reading the white on black BUT I did. I wish I had this kind of support back when so I would not have the health issues I have now. A clear example of how not taking care of yourself when you are younger can hurt.

I am looking forward to the new thread and pray that we can all help one another.

Just found that thread this morning and it is such a good support! We all need to feel we are not alone! My closest friends are those that are going through similiar life things that we can support each other on.
