Just a few minutes after I snapped this photo,
youngest granddaughter dropped and split her pumpkin open
because she didn't want Papa's help to carry her "burden".
When it comes to our burdens, I think we can have one of two issues as believers,
and maybe even both at the same time.
We can be too proud to admit we need the help of our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Maybe we're even too proud to ask for help from our Papa God!
We can also be too preoccupied with our own busyness or our own burdens
to help someone else with their burdens.
The story for my youngest granddaughter ended well
because all she had to do was choose a different pumpkin.
Unfortunately, when we choose to try to handle life without the help of God or others,
the results can be a lot more disastrous than a dropped pumpkin.
Also happily linking up with the lovely Lisha Epperson.
