Sorrows Divided on a Wednesday

Tonight I had my first ministry team since my surgery.
Have I mentioned lately how much I love those guys?
They are the best support team I could ask for, the best listeners, the best people at cheering me up, just the best group of friends.
They may not understand everything I'm going through, but they love me, no matter what. They are there behind me, loving me through it, cheering me on, letting me borrow their strength when I need it.
There's an old quote that says "Let it be that a joy shared is a joy multiplied and a sorrow shared is a sorrow divided"
It is definatly that way with my group of friends. Our joys are shared and multiplied, and our sorrows are divided.
It makes me thankful, thankful for this group of friends who have chosen to take my sorrows and divide it among themselves, that have chosen to bear this burden with me, and love me through it, letting me borrow their strength when I need it most.
I'm thankful, for sorrows divided on a Wednesday.

"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, for once he has been approved he will receive a crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love him." James 1:12

May God bless you and strengthen you through this trial.

Definitely praying for you, Alisha! My word, you are seriously fierce. And so brave. It sounds like you're surrounded by people who are absolutely crazy about you. Your posts are so encouraging - so honest and so full of heart and hope. I have a question to ask you but I can't find your email address on here. Could you shoot me an email, perhaps? My address is nat.lloyd (at)
