“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2, NIV)
Recently, I had the privilege of being the recipient of this “burden bearing” in a number of ways. Our daughter, Amanda, who suffers from Rett Syndrome, was scheduled for a surgical procedure at Hershey Medical Center. Although minor, it did require general anesthesia and at least a one night stay in the hospital. I was carrying a certain level of anxiety as I usually do whenever we face surgeries for her.
