Help others and let others help you. You are brothers and sisters, all of you on the journey of life together. Hold hands as you travel down the river of life. Cling tightly to each other as you ride the turbulent rapids. There are many experiences in life and knowing that you are not alone in the experiences is of great comfort. People need each other. Seclusion is only beneficial for so long. It is important to be alone to meditate, pray, contemplate, prepare and grow. But togetherness is so important for growth, union, love, upliftment and hope. Help each other up; don’t push each other down. Lift up one another with kind words, gentle smiles and loving gestures. Each individual is on their own journey in life, but together you can overcome anything you come up against along the way. Live. Laugh. Love. Togetherness. Amen.
