~ Atlantic Journal, June 16, 1883
Can you believe it? This was written more than 120 years ago.
For sure there are pressures on us all. For many, it is simply the weight of responsibility. For others it may be the difficulty of living under a tyranny. How do we deal with it?
Everyone needs a safe harbor, a place to get away. A place to find rest when weary. For some, getting back to nature is a wonderful escape. Others find refuge in their hobbies. For many, relief is found in their faith. Christians, for example, find comfort in the words of their Lord when he says, "Come unto me all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
It seems almost comical when the writer from the Atlantic Journal states, "Human nature can't endure much more." It depends, I would suggest, on where you are sitting.
