Are you broken? Me, Too. Why We Need Each Other

Are you broken? If you said 'yes,' good for you. You realize your'e 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 me are gonna help you heal." 


  1. What a beautiful "object lesson", Jeanette! (I collect sheep, too - and am sad that I've discarded a sheep or two because of a broken leg....)

  2. I love this 'sheep' analogy of how much we do need to come beside each other to hold each other up, build each other up, and maybe even walk a few steps together! And Jesus is always searching for the lame and/or lost sheep, isn't He?


Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
