In keeping with this morning's cartoon, "afloat", I thought I would share this tender cartoon from years ago called "Someone Cares". When the bible says that we weep when others weep, implied in that is that there is comfort when we know we do not weep alone, that we are not sad in isolation. Job's friends had it right for the first few days when they just sat with him overcome with a shared sorrow. Then they had to go open their mouths. Compassion literally means "to suffer with". Do you have companions in suffering? Are you a companion in suffering? Somebody cares. You can buy a print of this cartoon HERE.
