Are you broken? Me too.

Are you broken? If you said 'yes,' good for you. You realize you're not perfect and need help. We're all broken in one place or another. That's why we have a Good Shepherd, Jesus, to heal and restore us. 

And why He gave us each other. Working, loving, and sharing together, we can help each other heal in all those broken places we may not even be aware of. 

I collect sheep. Recently I noticed one of them had a broken leg. I don't even know how it happened, and never found the missing piece. You can see in the photo above that next to the other sheep, it's hardly noticeable. He stands as straight as his brother.

But when he's alone, you can spot the broken part right away. He seems smaller and more vulnerable. You want to pick him up and help him along his journey. 

We need each other. Let's come alongside a broken sister or brother today and say, "I love you. I'm here for you. 
It doesn't matter how you got broken. Jesus and I will help you heal." 

P.S. I am broken, too. And I need you. I appreciate you stopping by this blog, your kind words and thoughts, and your friendship, whether I've met you face to face or just know you by blogging. You are a dear lamb.
