“Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That’s why it’s a comfort to go hand-in-hand.” ~Emily Kimbrough (1899-1989), American author & journalist
Sometimes I trip myself up all by myself. I rush through my day and forget an all-important something on my To Do list.
Or I say something I shouldn’t. Or don’t say something I should.
I doubt instead of having faith.
Anger flares instead of a flourish of grace.
And then there are the times when others trip me up when an unkind word or an incorrect (and hurtful) perception of who I am.
Yes, my life can be a series of missteps and stumbles.
And that’s when I am thankful for the people who know all about me and who still like me, still love me — who hold my hand and hold me up when I stumble.
Without them, I’d land flat on my face in the dust of discouragement — and just stay there.
In Your Words: Who are you going hand-in-hand with? Who holds onto you when you stumble?
