Sympathy, Empathy, Solidarity – What Helps When You Hurt (She Loves Magazine)

“We looked at each other, and we just knew. She told me about her child’s cancer diagnosis, and I told her about my weakening legs.

“St. Paul speaks of this unique fellowship and comfort forged in the fires of suffering. “And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.” —2 Cor 1:7 (NIVUK) 

“There was no tilted head and only a wry smile, but our eyes met, and did not waver.  No matter how different the situations, in suffering, there is an understanding that surpasses words. In suffering, you find instant kinship.”

After a long silence (which I explained in my latest newsletter) – I am back dipping my toe into writing again! Won’t you celebrate by coming with me to She Loves Magazine and reading the rest?
