"My yoke is easy and my burden light"

Those words from today's Gospel are very consoling. All of us have burdens to bear. No matter what they are, we can always give them to Jesus. They won't necessarily go away, but he'll carry them for us. Just give him all your baggage.

I think, in today's society, this is a very difficult thing for us to do. We are raised to be independent, self-reliant, and goal oriented. To ask for help is exibiting weakness. How hard it is to remember before you hit bottom to call out to the Lord for help. But how much relief you can absorb from allowing Him to take your baggage from you!

Thank you for reminding us! I will think of this when next I should feel burdened.
