When the Weight of the World Stops Resting and Decides to Reside on Your Shoulders. Silverside Online. Sunday Morning, November 1 2020. Dr David Albert Farmer, Preacher and Pastor.

I worry about you a great deal, Mma.[Mrs.]. I worry that you will take all the cares of the world on your shoulders and that you will collapse under the weight. I worry that you will open your heart to so many people that eventually it will be full—crowded—and it will stop because there is no room for the blood to go round. I am worried that you will look after so many people that you will forget that there is one person who also needs looking after, and that person is you, Mma. I am worried about all these things.”
