Lean On Me

I hope this isn't a little too whimsi-goofical for some of you, but sometimes I just have those kind of thoughts run through my head, and my husband grins at me like I'm a little girl playing make-believe. But, anyway...

I know how this tree feels at the end of the day. Even though the Lord is our constant listener and shows us that He cares, It's nice that He also puts people in our lives we can depend on for support, and even unload on once in a while.

I've been having some foot problems lately so when I came across this photo again I just felt like the tree was saying "Ahhh", while it's thoughtful friend (or my hubby) lets it rest it's feet for a while. Any number of people would have a different thought coming from this same tree, depending on what is going on in your life at the time. One person I know would say someone just blew their top at the tree, so unexpectedly that it got thrown off balance, and now her husband is helping her recover (true story).
If you were this tree what would it be saying or feeling?

Pr.18:24 There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

If I were this tree, I would be saying: A little too much pressure on this one side. I feel a bit unbalance. Could use a hand here shifting my load so it evens out a bit.
There, that gives you a glimpse into my life right now!

Sorry you're a bit over-burdened. By "shifting your load" do you mean delegate? That's a really good word.
