‘Life is a succession of crises and moments when we have to rediscover who we are and what we really want.’ ~Jean Vanier
For a cyclist it is always easier to cycle with other riders who will take turns in breaking through a headwind and make it easier to keep the momentum up. A lone breakaway cyclist will always have to work harder on their own. They will have to do all the work breaking through any headwind. The same can be said of us too. Sometimes when we move out of the safety and protection of others or when we do a solo run we are open to feeling the elements more. It is at this time that we begin to understand more about ourselves, our limits and where we want to go. But it is always good to come back into the strength of team, family and community. God encourages us to maximise the support structures around us. Is there any person I know who needs my support at this time? Can I support them with some of my time, love and energy?
