"At times we may despair that our burdens are too great. When it seems that a tempest is raging in our lives, we may feel abandoned and cry out like the disciples in the storm, 'Master, carest thou not that we perish?' (Mark 4:28). At such times we should remember his reply: 'Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?'...
"'Commune with the Lord.... He is your best friend! He knows your pain because He has felt it for you already. He is ready to carry that burden. Trust Him enough to place it at His feet and allow Him to carry it for you. Then you can have your anguish replaced with His peace, in the very depths of your soul.'"

Let us oft speak kind words to each other
At home or where'er we may be;
Like the warbling birds on the heather,
The tones will be welcome and free.
They'll gladden the heart that's repining,
Give courage and hope from above,
And where the dark clouds hide the shining,
Let in the bright sunlight of love.
Let's oft, then, in kindly tone voices,
Our mutual friendship renew,
Till heart meets with heart and rejoices
In friendship that ever is true.
