Whispers From Eden

‘Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.’  (Galatians 6:2)

Recently I spent some time listening to a dear acquaintance as she processed through the worst tragedy I can imagine.

Mostly I just held space and gave her a loving ear.

I am learning that often the best way I can help another isn’t to give advice, demonstrably comfort them, or even bear gifts. Carrying each other’s burdens is a powerful act of love.

It was honor to bear hope for another in the midst of loss.
