I found this quote in high school and placed it in a scrapbook.  Though I just stumbled upon it the other day, these words have resonated with me now for years.  Do you know the curse of comfort?  Here is the secret of what to do when you feel that comfort seep upon you…

 

“Is thy curse of comfort wasting? 

Rise and share it with another;

and through all the years of famine,

it shall serve thee and thy brother.

Is thy burden hard and heavy?

Do thy steps drag wearily?

Help to bear thy brother’s burden

God will bear both it and thee.”

-Elizabeth Charles
